School Reviews

  • Recommended May 02, 2015 - I'm a mom of a middle schooler. We just moved to Denver a year ago and he was new to Hill Middle School, as he just started 6th grade this year. All year we have been dealing with my son being bullied by different kids in school. I want to make you very aware of what is happening. He has been teased for being a bigger kid. He has had students offer him a snack and then tell him they rubbed it in their pants once he took a bite. He has had a student push the chair out from under him in the auditorium. He has been pushed into walls and down stairs. I know about some of these issues, as I was witness to a couple of them. I have attempted to call the school, left messages, and even spoke to one staff member on one occasion. Nothing has been done. My son has told me he has filled out so many reports he is just tired of writing them. My son, who is only 11 years old, was overheard saying he was going to commit suicide. I sit here writing this to you broken hearted that my child feels this way. He said no one at the school would care or miss him if he did. He wasn't just talking about the students. He feels the teachers and all administration wouldn't care either. After almost an entire school year of this, with no help or anyone to talk to, this is how one of their students is feeling. In an age where bullying is so prevalent, I am befuddled at how this can go unnoticed even after the parent (me) has reached out. - Posted by Parent
