Inglewood Junior High School5

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.
this is an incredible school with dedicated teachers, administrators and staff. they offer a variety of programs to meet the needs of a broad range of families -- including academic/gifted kids through special needs and developmentally challenged kids. I highly recommend the school.
