The admins focus on all students safety. Teachers work way more than they should to try and target where there students are at. The leadership programs are amazing and can help ANY student weather, below-average or above average be a star in leadership and have a voice in this school. The staff are awesome and i bet you'll never find staff like this. And teachers are AMAZING at incorporating Fun & schoolwork hand-and-hand. The counselors are all amazing well-trained people, kind and understanding. They can help with any issues you have and you can feel comfortable talking to them. this is a fun and interesting school to be apart of.

Handles bullying effectively: Agree

This school has counselors that engage with students and talk about issues like bulling, harassment, suicide,etc. And they ask students what are the biggest issues, and the bigger issues at this school is: swearing, name-calling, not including, and counselors are working their way to stop that.


Effective school leaders: Strongly agree

Leadership is amazing!! and lets students have their voice! and engage and create programs/activities for students. it can help a "below average student" become an amazing leader in the school.

Amount of homework: Agree

Homework-Great amount. (Honestly depends on teacher.) But ALL are reasonable.

There is always at least one teacher on long term leave and usually in subjects like Math, History or English. The quality of teaching in general is not very good, especially in Math. Only kids who did Quest in elementary school seem to be able to get through middle school Math. There are a few good teachers, but they don't make up for the overall weak performance of the school. Trying to talk to the teachers is a futile exercise. They do not answer emails or follow up on requests. Overall they don't seem to care about the students at all. The overcrowding does not help. The online system is useless. The teachers do not update the results on the system so it is hard to keep track of assignments and tests. They complain that they do not get taught to use it properly. After-school sports are just a babysitting service. The teachers don't coach the kids, just keep an eye on them so they don't wander off.

Develops character: Strongly disagree

Overall the standard is lacking and teachers don't go above and beyond to encourage and enhance core values. They are way too many students they can handle. Parents are forced to take on a bigger role in order to create a productive and challenging learning environment for kids.

Academic performance has been declining; teachers lack enthusiasm and standard. Principal's 3 year improvement plan should be called 3 year declining plan. Current online tools in place doesn't enhance teacher accountability and student motivation. Parents need to take on a big role if you want your kids to succeed in this type of learning environment. The same comments also go to the entire district. Very disappointing.

Amount of homework: Agree


- a
It's a significant increase over elementary school but less than high school and college will be. My son needs to be ready. Some assignments do feel like a waste for him--spending a long time on coloring something in or cutting and pasting which doesn't really add to the learning experience.
