I am a student at 10th street, and i do not like it at all. It Is just to small, we do nothing. In language arts and social studies we literally just sit there for two hours and go to the next classes and just sit there. At 10th street your just trapped there, it is just too small. Right know i am in 7th grade, at first the school is fun i loved it! But once the year progressed, and then the beginning of this year i really just want to get out of there, it is just so, Claustrophobic. I would not recommend this school.

this is our final year at 10th st and maybe wont stay the whole year the last response wass so correct it has declined so badly and my child is suffering. so wonts to stay with her friends but has gone from straight A student to 2 failing classes with the 2 teachers discribed in the last reveiw. still loves music and art but learning nothing in social studies or Language arts the IPADsand lack of teaching has ruined her education and we must leave and correct it if there is no change. Principal is nonexistant. teachers have no contact even when you ask them and demand a conference they say its not needed. cant admit that their IPAD decision was wrong at our childrens expense. must make changes soon.

IT is so sad...I wish the previous review was still true. No longer great teaching but sleeper teachers in 2 major areas. Lets start with the positive MUSIC is king here,it's amazing. The teacher rocks and is inspiring. The science teacher is involved the students. The math teacher entered 2 months into the year and has done her best to catch students up. I supplement my child's LA & SS courses at home. Those teachers have even said that they do not do their jobs. There is no feedback in those two courses. They were not ready for Ipads. I have not been opposed to the Ipads but I certainly have not seen the "excellence" it was suppose to add. Communication is terrible. You have to "find" the communication if you want to stay in the loop, then you have to look in four different places. And if you or your child misses something, you are treated like " how could you miss it? it was at such and such place" Deadlines change often or assignments do. My child has one writing assignment that she put at least 10 pages of effort into and it was never collected. Parents want to be involved, have shared their concerns & are ignored. There is NO principal on campus, no consistent discipline.

This school has excellent teaches, clubs, acedemics, and even students. Our acedemics are challenging but our teachers are always there to help out. I am very thankful to all of my teachers and peers for making my learning experience at 10th street a great experience. We have an amazing variety of after school clubs that each student has an opportunity to join, from Jazz Band, to a club where you can make your own band (The Other Club), dj club, and game club. This school has figures of authorit all around, which comes in handy when violence breaks out, so we have a safer learning community. We also get many opportunities to go on camping trips and fieldtrips unlike any other school. And the best thing for parents is, if they want to come and help out they can do so whenever they want, parents are always involved in their child's learning. I am glad I got into a school of such quality. I hope you enjoy this school as much as I do.

I love this school! We are always ahead of everyone. We do 9th grade math in 8th grade, 8th grade math in 7th grade, ect. Then in science we are ahead of everyone doing more work and harder stuff. Our teachers always listen and everyone does there best. We also have lots of before and after school activities such as game club, jazz band, dj club, guitar club, leadership club, and our teachers are free to help you when ever. Safety wise, this schools is the best! I hear that at other schools theres fights like every day. At Tenth street, there may be at most 3 fights a year. Usaully there is none. Our parents do most of the stuff at our school, without them our school couldnt operate right. They take pics, set up stuff, chaperone, and more. Well thats all i have to share. Bye :)

I'm a almost seventh grader at tenth street and in just my sixth grade year at tenth street I really liked it! I think that all of the teachers were great and all of the classes were fun. I can't wait to go to Camp David and Fort Warden this year and hopefully Camp Delaney next year. If my family doesn't move before than, I hope that my younger brother and sister are able to make it into tenth street as well. Tenth street has lots of fun things to do, such as C of C, Friday store, taste of the world, Radioactive river, the concerts, all the games in math, some of the science experiments, and drawing our self-portraits. I hope that many other people will be able to have the same experiences that I had. Thx- Alethea D. Cody

I remember waiting in line one Jan. morning for about an hour and a half before sunrise, outside of 10th St for open enrollment. This because of word of mouth and before the lottery process. My son would have been a dust spect on the wall of the other middle schools. Instead he got a sense of community and gained in depth studies in areas of particular interest to him in each class. Kids learn alot about particular aspects of a subject then they share with others. Many group projects and field trips, some the entire school goes and others grade specific. I went hiking in the Hoh rain forest one year with my daughter's class. Best of all the band and occasional 8th grade dance number. Be prepared to roll up your sleeves Moms and Dads, you'll be amazed how good they do in H.S.

A very organic, teacher involved school that prepares students for high school and beyond. Successful due to small population, parental involvement and dedication of staff. Supplement book learning with either fun projects, or sleep over field trips. Met the principle once in 2 years, really teacher driven. If you are looking for your child to be challenged and you are willing to put in the work of volunteering then your child will be better off because of that choice. Remember every student plays an instrument also.

This school has provided a well rounded education for my child. I appreciate the way learning is accomplished by project orriented work. The childern are held accountable for their homework and are challenged by presenting back what they have learned. The small school environment allows for teachers to know kids strengths and weaknesses. Other educational opportunities in the district pale in comparison to this schools level of education.

If your kids attend 10th Street they should be prepared for homework and lots of it! But they will also find a nuturing environment, amazingly dedicated staff and unique learning opportunities. The week-long trip to Fort Warden is something they will remember all their lives. Two of my kids attended this school and two attended MMS. There is simply no contest.

My child has thrived at this school. The smaller environment, and all the fact that all the teachers know her has made the last 2 years wonderful. Math and science are great, language arts and social studies work together perfectly. Art is a bonus and the band teacher brings out the best. The PE teacher encourages all. Great staff! Great environment!

Posted February 9, 2004

As a former student, I can assure anyone that this school has certainly led to my higher education. The small amount of students has allowed the teachers to help students more one-on-one. Which is vital to a middle schooler. The Language Arts department is challenging, yet well worth the effort. The math department leaves a little to be desired, but is superior to those in the area. And for those of us who enjoy a good lunch, well, don't even think about bringing a lunch box!
