I am a 6 th grader here. For being my first year at middle school, I say that this school is the best option for any kid who has the opportunity to go here. They have lots of fun opportunities. The only reason they give out homework is because, you do not finish the work in class. This school has a high learning criqulum. Many things have changed over the time. I really recommend this school.Middle school was my best opportunity i have had.

After being a teacher at this school, I would not recommend the South Tahoe Middle if you have a choice. The discipline issues are constant and I believe the principal is far too permissive. There are some good students there, and some quality teachers, but this has been one of the lower achieving schools I've worked at. I felt very unsupported at times as I did my best to educate the student population.

I'm in 8th grade and I think that this school is great because they have a class called Grade Recovery they let you do work in the class

South tahoe middle schools main focus is to satisfy state requiem to ensure teachers have a job for next year. Being a transient town student numbers fluxuate and state and federal funding are dependant on enrollment. Parents involvement is the main reason the school rates high. School leadeship is influenced by whats poular this week, month or year and sadly that is what is important to them not the individual students needs. They are very quick to classify a student as a bully, or send them to detention or ocr ( on campus retention) because it involves little investigation or work on their part. Everything will be fine as long as your student or you ( the parent) give them absolute power.
