School Reviews

Personally, as a student of the school, the school itself is fairly decent compared to its reputation. Most of the administration team is helpful and kind, and most of the teachers are dedicated to their students and lessons. The only few things I''d recommend fixing is possibly how teachers react to certain situations, and how they treat their students, including listening to them if they have an issue. That can be a big problem at some points, especially when a student has a simple, small issue they''d like to discuss with the teacher. Otherwise, the only other thing that can be iffy at the moment is the Chinese program. Now I do know I'm my years there, my group was the first Chinese class at the school, and it was very messy at first. Though hopefully, by the time other students reach this middle school, the Chinese program is organized and great. However, the Chinese teachers are incredibly kind and compassionate to their students! Good school!

Administration is inconsistent. Often unfair and excessive punishments are given to students. Look at their suspension rates in relation to other schools within the district. Very little accommodations given to students who are above or advanced learners. Very disappointed.

Great School!! It takes my child 21 minutes to walk to school. Thats to far and there are no complete sidewalks, no crossing guardsanywhere until you get to the school. That early in the am is entirely to dangerous for the students to be walking. My child says the cars do not stop for them. Crossing guards are needed everywhere or more buses
