Not too bad, but I think leadership has a ways to go with understanding their staff. There is a disconnect between teachers and leadership and that needs to be corrected.

Great! There is drama, there are hard times but it's just like any middle school. I like this school because they care about my kid even when she's difficult. They have been respectful and supportive.

This is a zero tolerance school - meaning if you have a first offense such as calling someone a name, your child may get the same consequences as someone who physically assaults someone. They punish children for very minor infractions by removing them from the classroom and learning. They expect respect but I have personally witnessed multiple faculty members being extremely disrespectful to children. My son has been a support system for a child with special needs for 9 years now. I have affects of this child being assaulted, bullied etc. and the school has done nothing to stop it. I child can purposely slam a door into another childs face breaking his glasses and the

This school retaliates against students and parents who report bullying, they rather HARASS you out of the district than deal with the problem.

I don't recommend anybody to go to this school. Sure it is nice, but it have many drawbacks. 1. Drama is everywhere. It's usually normal to have a few school fights every school year. Girls would do anything to cause drama so watch out. 2. There are so little electives for their students. They only have choir, band, and wellness. There are also periods called PRIDE and you can choose choir, jazz band, wellness, computers, engineering, etc. 3. Some teachers are just there to get a paycheck. Pros 1. Many teachers actually care about preparing their students for high school and college. This usually starts during 8th grade. They would introduce students to writing essays, and learning the consequences of not doing their best in school. 2. There's advanced math classes that you can take so you can take Geometry in your freshman year. Also there's a science class you can take during your 8th grade year, so you can skip Biology in high school. This school should have more electives like Drama, Cooking, Spanish, Art, Dance, etc. They should also try to stop drama from happening. Also they should have more sports like dance team, cheer, tennis, basketball, etc.
