My 12 year old son goes to 7 th grade at Rancho Middle School. As pampered parents of one of the best elementary schools in town and until the commencement of the school this year, we were a bundle of nerves. But I must admit that the experience with this middle school has been nothing but a pleasure. ...  Read more

My time at Rancho was challenging, however by the end of eighth grade I was completely prepared for UNI. Just like most schools, some teachers are disorganized and frantic, while others are calm and have a plan of what they are going to teach a month in advance. I did not participate in the GATE program ...  Read more

Socially I wouldn't recommend this school for black children. Racial slurs are a regular thing here. For two years my child was teased about not being black enough and called many names. Also one of teacher's here disclosed my child's grades to the entire class. Because of this teacher's action my child ...  Read more

My son loves this school. All my worries or concerns went by the waste side after the first month. The administration at this school is great. I can't say enough good things about Rancho!

Our experience has been mixed. Some great teachers and some very poor teachers. Academics would be better if some of the teachers spent more time on organization and communication. Strong P.E. and fitness program (if you care).

This school is amazing. My daughter loves to come to school every day, she's challenged in GATE-level classes, the teachers are communicative when you require it and are welcome to parent queries when appropriate. There's lots of activities to get invoved in and the kids know about all of them. The Principal ...  Read more

This is a wonderful school for my child. The academics are challenging and the principal and vice-principal are on top of things, even socially with the kids! I am glad my child loves to go to school everyday. We do not see much bullying in the school but certain children just love 'hugging' a bit too ...  Read more

Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled.
