There is bullying at Inglewood. It would seem that with all the programs, including assemblies, they have in place, the school administration would be able to handle it. That has not been my experience. They listen but rarely take action unless you prove your child is being bullied. The bullies rights take precedent over the child being bullied. As for the teachers, there is decently favoritism with some and some do state their "belief" system, but overall they have been pretty good. Coaches are amazing!

Amount of homework: Disagree

Way too much for middle school. Much of the homework s unnecessary and not realistic.


Develops character: Strongly disagree

Principal Tim Patterson is simply awful, as is his counseling and leadership staff. I have had two of my children attend Inglewood, and Tim has repearedly demonstrated he cares more about making himself look good over serving the best interests of the students. He is not only arrogant and rude, but his entire staff is grossly uninformed on basic policies, appropriate processes as well as technology used by the students. He has often been described as an old-fashioned, educational bureaucrat who cannot relate to students of today. This has been our experience as well. In addition, the bullying is incredibly out of control and has been for years. Patterson is ineffective and his entire "leadership team" is anything but leaders. They are uninformed and lack disparate opinions, most likely out of fear of straying far from Patterson's "party line" - at the expense of student's best interest. If you have a choice in middle schools, STEER CLEAR OF PATTERSON AND INGLEWOOD! !

In addition, the bullying is incredibly out of control and has been for years. Patterson and his staff have been woefully off the mark in helping students with this key issue. I'very also found the "leasership" staff being anything but leasers, many times creating issues for students and there family when none existed prior to their involvement. The teachers are typical at a school with a dictatorial principal, lacking disparate opinions at the expense of the children, most likely because they are fearful of wandering far from the "party line". If you have a choice in middle schools, STAY CLEAR OF PATTERSON AND INGLEWOOD!

My daughter is a current 8th grade student at Inglewood, and I have only praises for the school. She has had the exceptionally motivated and involved teachers in Inglewood, making her more motivated than she ever was in elementary school. The attention and individualized support she received from the teachers, even when the class sizes have be quite large, have exceeded our expectation. The environment has been very supportive, safe and yet fun.

Overall this is a great school. The school is clean, has a great music department and several sports activites to choose from. The majority of the teachers are wonderful and create a fun learning environment. My main complaint is that there are a few teachers that need to remember that they are there to teach the children while not putting them down and making them feel stupid if they don't understand. Myself, along with several other parents that I have spoken to whose children are also in my daughters class, have complained that their Math and Science teacher has rolled her eyes, made snippy comments and seems rather annoyed with her students if they struggle with their work. The learning environment should be a postive one rather than making the kids feel dissapointed in themselves.

Shocked by the reviews on this site. Our experience has been very different. The school is crowded, the website to assist the children in figuring out their classwork is at best like navigating a maze. Our child has been overwhelmed and bullied. One bully is in 5 of his classes and they won't move our child or the bully, expecting him to work it out. He comes home each day miserable and collapses from the stress of it all. It's perfectly horrid. No amount of communication with the counselor has seemed to help. Our son has had tutoring 3 days per week from the beginning of the school year but that's not enough. We're researching private schools right now.

I went to Inglewood all three years of being in a junior high, and it was everything I could've asked for. The teachers were always willing to help out and give that little boost if you ever needed one. They are all more than happy to help raise your grade and keep it there, and their teaching skills are extremely student friendly. Inglewood is overall an amazing and safe environment and I truely loved it.

This school might just be one of the best i have seen in Washington. Many programs and sports are offered. The adminstrators and staff at this school are great, they truly care about the students and their future. I have not heard of a major fight or any act of violence at this school. This is the way to go.
