Read what parents are saying about Switzerland Point Middle School
I am currently an Advanced student in Switzerland Point Middle School, in my 8th grade year, and I have been at Swiss since 6th grade. And, to be quite frank, lots of these reviews are quite deceptive. If your kid is in Advanced courses, they were well aware of the work load when they showed up, and if they are unable to complete their assignments, then they simply don't belong in the gifted program. Also, about the discipline, if you just follow the basic rules of the school and are respectful to the teachers and staff, the deans or assistant principle won't bother you, and although I do agree that Mr. Beck is a vampire, he is completely fair. Also, on the subject of teachers, the parent comments are really quite deceptive. Lots of the teachers are motivated and come ready to teach. And the standards? You can't expect them to change those! They are just teachers! They teach to the standard because they want to teach their job. Believe me, I don't like it any more than anyone else, but the teachers can't change it, and us kids can't change it. And even though there are some bad teachers at Swiss Point (I won't name any names) this is the REAL WORLD. And in the real world, you aren't necessarily going to like everyone you have to work with, but you just have to learn to suck it up. So please, if you were dissuaded by any of the negative reviews, please reconsider, you don't want your kid to miss out on this amazing school.

If something happens, the assistant principal Wayne Beck will blame students, let the students pay the price even students didn't do anything wrong.

The teachers are frustrated that they must teach what is required, that being said,should not allow many of them to come to the classroom with bad attitudes. Many of them do not teach and expect the kids to figure all of the work out themselves. The teachers are terrible at communication. Never return calls or emails. The administration will take calls, so atleast you can get through to someone. They do take a great stand on bullying from what my child has told me,so I commend them on that!

I have an 8th grader at this school who used to love Swiss point in his 6th grade year when the English guy was there. Apparently when he left so did any fun they had there.

This school used to be the gifted cluster site, and still claims to be though they have absolutely no gifted education whatsoever. As per another parent's post, teachers no longer teach, but only hand out test packets and tests, and students are expected to teach themselves, and prepare themselves for the daily tests that comprise their grades entirely. It's a punitive environment for children, and not conducive to learning or the love of learning. It's difficult to discern which are school, district, state or Federal policies, but the end result is children suffer, and their education is destroyed.
