I'm just happy I got out of there. I truly do worry how much my education would have been corrupted and corroded had I continued attending this school as well as its high school counterpart.

Ok this school is Average. It's not a bad school, nor is it a great school. My daughter is safe, fed, and has homework. That's why it's average. She came from Tukwila elementary and just finished up her 6th grade. She is in nearly all honors class. Honestly I think she's in honors basically 7th grade

My daughter does well but I feel like she's doing grade level. They should emphasize more on teaching the students grade level. Read less

This school is one of the worst schools my child has ever attended! As the parent of a special needs child I am as involved as possible in my child's education, the staff and administration at this school not only avoid communication efforts made to facilitate the child's progress, their lack of concern

While I understand that most children in middle school are expected to be self reliant in a lot of aspects, when dealing with a special needs child some of those expectations are not possible, and this school district and school are not equipped to deal with situations outside of the complaisant child. Getting help in terms of academic progress with this school is next to impossible. If you are concerned about your child's education, special needs or not, avoid this entire district! Read less

Showalter Middle School is the weakest of the the three schools in the district. WASL scores for students over the last 5 to 10 years show that children are failing from over 50% to 82% in reading, writing,, math and science. The school is in step 3, heading to step 4 for AYP. Parents should exercise

Some of the teachers (very few) are supportive and try to help students; however, most appear to take an approach that children must teach themselves and some do with help outside of the school. The attitude of admistrators at the school is also negative towards parent involvement and is lacking in communicating to the community. Read less

I agree that I am disappointed with how the staff communicates with parents.

I'm pleased with the teachers at Showalter. They show great concern for my son and they're willing to help him outside of class. Their core support group has been very good for my son as well.

Show Walter is an exteme disappointment. It seems that the teachers are more concerned if a child steps out the cafeteria door at lunch, rather than being concerned in how well they are actuallly doing in class. They also seem to be more subs than actual teachers. I also agree that there advanced classes
