This school is OK. Not great. They seem to be very unorganized and difficulty communicating with faculty. My child told me he has seen a lot of physical fighting going on between students, both girls with girls, boys with girls and boys with boys. Also, there is a social studies teacher who likes to impress her personal beliefs on the students. Specifically stating she does not celebrate 4th of July and does not stand for the national anthem. I feel teachers should be teaching facts not impressing their beliefs upon our children. But I am happy with all of the other teachers my son has. I guess their is always one bad apple. I am also hoping that the faculty will get it together eventually.

Below average. They are trying but this school is subpar.

The school has recently invested a lot of energy and resources in enduring the social and emotional well being of the students to foster a sense of community and support them in their academic growth.

This school has changed alot. But unfortunately many people still do not give it chance. My son is now in 7th grade and he has survived his first year of middle school. The school is amazing. The teachers and administration are hands on and very supportive of the children. Sixth grade can be tough transition for many kids. With their new found freedom also comes responsibility. The administration is very aware of this. I feel so comfortable dropping my child off every day. The students are happy. The afterschool program is excellent. The teachers are very receptive to parent requests. They even changed their homework policy based on parent complaints. My son is in the GT program. He is challenged but not stressed out. More hw does not equal smarter students and the school understands this. Other middle schools in the district have received that memo yet and still bombard the children with inhumane amounts of hw.

A lot of the information here is a couple years old. This school now has a Gifted and Talented program. My son is now a 7th grader in the program and has done very well. The school is moving in the right direction.
