I am in hi-cap classes and in advanced math. I feel that the teachers are great at teaching and getting you ready for the next grade. The only reason i think the others feel that Juarez goes to fast is that there is so many standards that have to be met for every district that most of the kids fall behind. Besides being a great school based on its teachers and staff, i absolutely hate the amount of cursing i hear every day, and its not just the 8th graders but new 6th graders that are coming from the elementary schools that are acting like they rule the school. In Conclusion for that little note there: The teachers and staff need to indorse a better no cursing rule. Its in the rule book but when they hear cursing they don't do any thing about them.all in all this is a great school and i recommend it for any kid who is looking for some fast knowledge. -Hannah (student)

i love this school.i am a student at cedarcrest middle school.when i started poy in 6th grade i had a hard year most of the students were very rude.the math teachers were nice and did their best to help to help the students i feelt that Mrs Juarez moved way too fast and that mr.bickford take time to explain everything and help which most of the time he did not answer with questions. In 7th grade the teacher were more helpful expect foe a handful of them.

I have a Son in 7th grade there currently and so far so good. I do feel that the Teachers don't really reach out to the parents from what I see so far. The exception is Mrs Juarez (6th grade math). She sends out weekly emails of what is coming up and what the kids are doing. She let us parents now when extra help was available. If a child didn't succeed in her class it was NOT her fault, she did her best. The other Teachers so far don't reach out to us but do respond if I contact them. My Son is a part of a Triangle between Him, Teachers and his parents. We hold him accountable for his work and keep an I on Skyward, his Teachers teach him the best they can and he asks questions if he has problems. If we notice his grades dropping a little we ask him questions and talk to the teacher if a little help is needed. So far the triangle has worked and the teachers have really held up there side as well. I always let him know that in order for it all to work he has to apply his best effort and then everything will fall into place. EFFORT is the most important, not the overall grade

This school does not teach that if you fail to do the work, you fail the grade and will repeat it. The explanation I have been given for this is that it is emotionally detrimental for the child to be held back. I say: garbage. If they continue to pass my child on that is not doing the work it will re-enforce that I, as his parent, don't know what the heck I'm talking about when I tell him what real-life consequences are AND it will be far more detrimental to his future to have to learn these lessons when he is in high school and beyond. He now has bad habits that will affect the rest of his life: where/if he goes to college, his job, his self-esteem, his work ethics.. the list goes. The teachers blame parents, I blame the school for not supporting my efforts at home.

I agree with another post, the discipline and order is out of control. I don't know if this is because of the ratio of students to staff is too many or what. My grandson is now attending another district and he is doing much better.

I am a parent, a daughter of a teacher and alumni to Cedarcrest. I believe the teachers do an excellent job at reaching out to the parents and students. It is the parents who fail to connect with their children and to the teachers. It is also the students who fail to take accountability for their work. I believe the standards should stay high because if they don't continue to challenge them then what does that tell our kids about working hard to reach a goal?

The discipline and order in this school is awful. I teach there and have inside view. There is no intervention by administration unless students do something extreme. Chronic, low level disruptive behavior by many students is what is destroying the learning environment. I wouldn't allow my own child to attend this school!

This school makes constantly failed efforts at improving discipline and staff/student relations. They don't attempt to connect to parents or the community at all. Their test scores aren't too bad so at least the basic information is getting thru to most students but I agree that the one's who struggle are overlooked. I work there but I am not a teacher.

I am a student at Cedercrest and truthfully I think most of the failings is due to the fact that some, not all, of the teachers set standards too high and fail to take in the general picture of their class, and so their students fail. Although it is very clean, I hope to get transferred soon too.

I used to be a student at CederCrest and honestly it was one of the greatest schools i have ever attended. The staff and students are amazing and the academic classes are wonderful.

I initiated contact with all of my daughter's teachers at the beginning of school. I am home schooling her next year! No, the teachers do not give regular feedback to students and challenge them to achieve their personal best. They do not go to great lengths to care for and support students personally.

This school is not very engaged in the success of the student, they often comment 'I have 30 students how can I focus on one'. If you do not monitor Basmati closely you may not realize your student is in trouble as the teacher's will not contact you. They are not agressive on discipline and allow inappropriate classroom behavior from both students and teachers. Teachers in my opinion to take ownership for the success of their students. The school is clean and maintained.

I think that the teachers try very hard at getting kids ready for the following years. I do beleive that the school is over populated and so there are many kids that are left at the end of the school year behind some of the other children. The reading program needs to be worked out and have a revised and better program brought to the school. Over all I think that the teachers care and try to manage with what they have.

Discipline? What needs to be done? Discipline? I have found that some Teachers just assume the worst in children. You know when I was in school we had kids that were distruptive and had a really difficult time sitting down and learning because they were hyper. No doubt that this is a problem, when they determined that there was a child that was special in that way they put them in a special classroom with other kids that they could relate to and maybe learn to understand how they are acting by seeing it first hand. Yes I admit it took a special teacher to deal with it, but it seemed to work very well. What happened to this system. Hyper children are not lost causes so why are they being treated this way. This school I have found to be the worst about that. seems unfair for the children.

A student that has failed over 90% of his classes for two years does not deserve to move on to the next grade. Your school is setting these children up for a let down in life. If they don't do the work, they shouldn't pass. Don't move them forward for doing nothing. That's like getting a reward for doing no work. If we don't show up for work, we do not get payed. Same rules shall apply for our children. If they don't do their home work, they don't pass, if they don't turn their work in, they don't pass! That is reallity.

I went to this school and my experience was not at all good. This school has the worst security and discipline system. They suspend a student for the most ridiculous reasons, most suspensions are not justified in any way. Considering this is the best middle school in Marysville, it makes the basic middle school and junior high system in this town completely screwed up.

Disruptive children in the classroom inhibit my child's ability to learn. The administration does not do enough to improve discipline.
