the truth is this school is not the best. most students are bullied by students and a few teachers. This school does not support individuality. I feel the curriculum may be better but the school life, facility and faculty needs some help

I love this school, excellent teachers, and I have not seen any bullying at all, there is graffiti but it is always funny though when people say there name like for example: (insert name here) had been here, so yay, we know your name, and what your handwriting on bricks looks like.

Communication between parent/teacher is wonderful. Plenty of sport ops for kids to get excited about. Dress code needs to be enforced, doesn't seem like the list of appropriate school attire was followed. If the clothes are inappropriate than the kid should wear PE clothing if the parent(s) can't bring something else. That's just my suggestion. It might give an incentive to follow the dress code.

Hmm, what can I say about this school, maybe 1 star, the principle is like a drill sergeant and stuck up, the teachers look the other way when things happen, quite a bit of bullying, including some teachers, I think the kids do it enough that it carries on to the teachers, if I had another chance, I would have had my kid go to a different school

My son attends Pacific Middle School and we have found it to be on par with many of the private schools in the Portland/Vancouver area! We have family members that attend some of the highest rated private schools and have seen no advantages over the education our son is receiving at Pacific. Thank You to all the staff for a great learning environment!

This school has everything your child needs except you. With your help and guidance together with the school there would be no reason for anything except success. I have read some of the other reviews and overall agree with them. Just stay involved and the results will come. Great teachers, Greta leadership, Challenges for students with regard to learning. GREAT SCHOOL!

I love Pacific because of the caring staff and the variety of support classes offered. I also think the amount of activities/clubs/sports available for students is awesome!

I think this is a great school. There is great students and staff, but because of the high student count, some situations can get out of hand. Very good school though.

It seems like a very nice school, but many of us parents are very concerned about the safety of our children. It should be the top priority!

There is little to no supervision or protection for our kids on the school grounds, in PE, or in the halls. The teachers I have encountered have a severe lack of parent communication.

My experience with Pacific has been excellent. The teachers and office staff have been supportive and helpful when our family experienced tragedy. All the teachers have been communicative and understanding.

I have been very pleased with Pacific MS. I feel like the teachers and the administrators truly care. I appreciate that the principal wants to hear the concerns of the parents. I do wish some teachers updated Edline (online grading) more often, and a couple of the teachers seem tired of teaching, but overall we've had a very positive experience. I was completely impressed by their PE curriculum. The best I've ever seen, but I believe that's district-wide.

I think Pacific is a very well rounded school. I feel it offers great accademic satndards fro my child. Though it does have issues that need to be delt with...but it could be worse. Nothing is perfect. I feel PAcifics best quality is its staff. it has a great staff that treats students like the age appropriate.

Pacific provides excellent opportunities for their students. The teachers are dedicated to providing the best for their students. The core classes are solid and the electives are some of the best I have ever seen. My son particularly enjoyed woodshop. He looked forward to school just for that class. The sports programs are well run.

The parent involvement at Pacific is one of the highest levels I have seen. THe parents are involved in band and choir, sports and the PTA at higher than normal levels. My son was involved in th accelarated classes in the 6th and the 7th grade. He was challenged and enjoyed the teacher. My daughter needed a little nore help than the average student and they were there to assist her in all of the special needs that an olfer adopted child needed. When it came to referrals of counselors and doctors they made ggod choices and it was greatly appreciated.
