9 Parent Reviews for Trailridge Middle School

I can't wait for my child to be done with middle school. His reports of students swearing loudly in hallways and classrooms, the lack of discipline by some teachers, to the point where students can't even hear the announcements, the surly secretary, and lack of communication with parents are just the ...  Read more

I would not recommend sending a child to this school if you care for them just a little bit. The school is rundown and has poor use of funding. You could get a better education in the Favela.

No real learning happens here. Trailridge is like a holding cell until the kids can get to high school. The kids are disrespecful and often very mean, although the comments about the teachers being "too strict" are way off. Teachers have to be strict to put up with kids like these. The curriculum ...  Read more

I went to Trailridge for both 7th and 8th grade. The teachers were great.. but the main principal made up pointless rules and refused to be wrong in any situation. I would recommend for your child to go to Westridge rather than Trailridge any day.

The school does not seem to have stable staff in Math dept. Also, Math Teachers have the students grade each other's homework which causes erroneous grading. Students are not taught the alternative ways of solutions to correctly grade each other's work. Teachers are too restrict which antagonizes ...  Read more

This school is all right, but they are way too strict on the kids. They need to let up a little on their pointless policies and let the kids be free.
