My two sons were in al honors programs and had a great experience. All teachers cared about their education, and were there to help along the way.

My daughter has been at Santiago for two years. Though she started receiving special services at the beginning of the year, she tested out shortly thereafter and has continued to do well. My only negative comment is that she didn't have much homework which concerned be a bit. The principal is amazing and the office staff have a heart for kids. Dr. D'Agustino always returned my emails and was always outside before and after school making sure the kids were crossing the streets safely. My daughter enjoyed the assemblies and having the opportunity to choreograph dances to perform for the school. I like that they wear uniforms so no one knows who is well off and who is not. I would recommend this school. In fact, my younger daughter will be attending next year as well.

My son was only at Santiago for one semester of his 8th grade year to finish things off. He was not very challenged by the academics even though all his classes were honors classes. He was often offended at the lack of control that teachers have over the bad behavior of students, especially inappropriate or crude things that are said.

Amazing. I have put 3 kids through Santiago (one an Honors student, two not). If you're trying to decide on junior high, do your homework and come visit Santiago. Talk to the Principals. Talk to the students. Talk to those of us who've been here the last 6 years for the real story. We love the accountability, resources, diversity, leadership, extra activities, etc.

I have been blown away by the fantastic quality of teachers, administrators and staff at Santiago. They care deeply for the students, and the students know it too. We get multiple communications each week from the principal, and teachers. The history and science depts do an especially great job of keeping parents up to date each week with what is going on in the classroom. Love it. The leadership students put a focus on school-wide inclusiveness, which sets a great tone for the social aspects of the school. My daughter enjoys going to school every day. I would never have expected that at the middle school level! Kudos to the Santiago staff. Proud to be a Santana!
