This school is great somewhat there is some drama but hey there is drama everywhere but other than that the teacher are reasonable and the given assignments due dates are pretty reasonable to. I am in 6th grade right now and my experience is good I am excited for next years Pre-Advanced Program. Just the fact that we have to wear school color sweaters is unfair in my opinion why can't we were our own sweaters what if the only jacket you have is hot pink and it is winter and you are not allowed to where it because it isn't school colors.

I've had so many problems with my child who is current disabled and has a few learning challenges. My son has an active and updated IEP and it's constantly getting modified and even though I explain what works best for my child in tough situations they for some reason neglect the IEP. It saddens me because the IEP was made to troubleshoot and constantly help the child to learn and grow according to his needs. I've been upset and have spoken with the principle about many different concerns that I've had about how the administrators there deal with conflict resolutions and how the deal with parents that are upset because the feel disregarded and not treated fairly and how we have been concern about not only their children but the growth of the school as a whole. I've been very abrupt with him at times when I've been feed up with situations but never disrespectful, and when he didn't like what I was saying he just stop answering my questions and yes he has hung up on me more then once. School should always work on improving. For what I've experience they're not interested in growing the administrators are overwhelmed with the challenges in the complexity of many of their students.

Teachers are really rude, This school is the WORST! Never go to it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I hate it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Ms. Alig and Mrs. Weins/ mcgavick is the only nice teachers there. Mrs. Mcgavick was a 6th grade math teacher for 13-14 school year. Ms. Alig was a Choir,musical theater, general music,ect. for the 13-14 school year. My daughter told me she was watching hunger games in science, and I NEVER got a permission slip to sign or anything. Worst communication ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Saghalie Middle School has gone under great transformation with new administrative leadership and vision through a small-schools approach with admin at each grade-level. A school-wide, integrated STEM approach with one-to-one technology through the use of Learnpads keeps students engaged and challenged. The school staff is focusing on 4 major school goals and is tracking the positive impact on student learning. Many engaging electives are offered and many courses offer high school credit to challenge students. The staff contacts families on a regular-basis and is committed to meeting students' needs. MANY after school clubs, activities, and sports are offered to students. Students may participate in Spring Intercession and Summer School for FREE! Many community partnerships have been developed to support the whole child. Please, contact us with questions or for a tour of the school!

This is my son's second year at this school and we are extremely happy with the caring teachers and office administration. Student participation in some sports is lower than we would like but overall they have excellent programs. The only opportunity for growth I can see with this school is I wish the children were a little more academically challenged. My son is pretty smart and seems to breeze through the classes. Overall, we are very pleased and my son has had no problems interacting with other children.

I've had 2 children attend Saghali Middle school. For the most part, the teachers are caring. I especially love the office staff, and the counselor, Ms MacDonald. Ms Macdonald will care for your child as if he/she is her own. The music teacher is great! Although in the past, activities at the school were poorly organized. I'm happy with saghali, as are my kids.
