THe strength here is in the teaching staff. Very high quality teachers. The Administration is fair and treats everyone equally.

Bullying/cyberbullying are pervasive. School relies on camera playback to monitor unsupervised time-reactive. Students are allowed to use cells during school day. School admin seems to know little about social networking and how to handle cyberbullying. Zero tolerance is NOT a policy at this school.

The teacher are good but some of them can be confusing though but all and all good. The lunches are good. I wish that some of the electives could be better but there are still good. The cleanness is ok Probably a 7.5 out of 10.

This is a great school. Can't believe the other low ratings by prior students. There is a wonderful WEB program that allows 8th graders to welcome and acclimate incoming 7th graders. This really makes the school welcoming and reduces any bullying. The teachers are great about addressing problems, offering before or after school tutoring and keeping parents informed via email. For kids who want more rigorous studies, high school math and foreign language are offered. These are tough subjetcs that prep your kid for high school. Both my kids took HS math and one child completed 2 years of HS French. My kids did not attend after school activities but there were a couple dances and parties. The year-end trip to Cedar Pt. is great and the 8th grade trip to Washington DC SHOULD NOT be missed. The Scranton Track & Field is awesome and run very well. Overall, I would recommend this school to anyone. Scranton teaches self-reliance, independence and organization - all key skills for HS.

We moved from a school with the reputation of excellence in the Cincinnati area to come to Scranton Junior High area. I was worried about moving to another state and school. I struggled so hard to get accommodations in the past and had difficulty getting educators on the "same page" in Ohio. Coming to Scranton was like a breath of fresh air. I have NEVER found a school more caring or eager to help my child. Most of the teachers I found were dedicated to teaching and advancing the children in their classrooms. I can proudly say that my child is a straight "A" student for the first time not one marking period but two!!! My child is reaching his full potential here. I see negative responses in prior reviews for Scranton and all I can say is that student and parent involvement fosters a good relationship with teachers and staff. This is what happened for me here at Scranton and I saw lots of hard work on both ends. Of course your going to always find that teacher who doesn't feel impassioned about their work any where but the same goes for parents and students. Looking at the caliber of the majority of teachers and staff at this school I would highly recommend Scranton for your child.
