Great school for parents that would like to be involved in PTA but when it comes to serious manners I find the staff not really enforcing procedures and the policies they make.

This school is very large. If your child needs extra attention they most likly will not receive it unless you the parent pushes for it. You must constantly keep checking on how your child is doing. You need to question the teachers as to what extra work your child may need to keep up in class.

Myers is a great school with a friendly atmosphere. In general, the teachers are easily accessible and willing to work with parents. There is an active PTA. The assistant principal, Mr. Dubaldi, is strict, yet fair and caring. The school will miss him when he leaves! On the down side, the principal is

Considering how much money they have, it would have been nice if the PTA paid the $12 each so the 6th graders would get their yearbooks free, as they've done in the past. Read less

This school administration is for the birds. They refuse to address bullying. They want the child to come up with the punishment for another student. The staff doesn't want to know you either, they can be down right rude. Being there for just one year, they treated us as we were outsiders with a disease.
... Read more There is no communication at all with the team of teachers that teach your children. The should stop the set up here for 6th graders, it should have never started back in 1977! The two principals aren't looking out for the kids-they are looking out for themselves and job security. They can't control the bad students-there were instances of behaviors that border crimal acts this past year and yet they allowed these students back to classes. The schools too big for them to manage. It's a totally wasted year. Read less

I really feel the schoool is just over whelmed by the amount of students they have especially in the 6th grade. It is up to the parents to always check up on their children and ask lots and lots of questions. If more parents got involved maybe there wouldn't be so many problems with parents students

Though there are caring dedicated staff among the many (as this is a large school district), we have found that many decisions about whether to investigate and evaluate their special needs students properly, is clearly dictated - purely by economics. As a result, a misunderstood child would be expeditiously
... Read more 'moved out', rather than parents seeing a sincere effort on the part of the administration to evaluate them properly. In short, our experience is that this district clearly abrogates their responsibility to evaluate special needs students in all areas of their suspected disabilities. As a result, students with unresolved problems and suspected disabilities, are left to flail and fail. Read less
