Patton junior High is the worst school I have ever been enrolled in for so many reasons .The environment ,favoritism, inappropriate disrespect and public embarrassment from teachers, Administration and office staff is very unproffesional and most of everyday mess up the announcements and are laughing on them and also learning I am failing most of my classes Because I am not going to ask a teacher questions who is going to disrespect me and make me sound stupid. ,Also freedom of the students I have experienced forms of all these at least once. Most more than once .The percentage of 9th graders is so low because people are so ready to leave . when I ask 9th graders why they are still in patton they either say they where forced to by there parents or their parents didn't want to pay the bus fees .But I have never never been a single student that said they enjoyed patton. im so happy im leaving this year #blessup

Patton jr high school is an okay school for 7th through 9th graders ... i would reccomend it over any schools in leavenworth... esp. 4 ninth graders. the quality of academic programs is okay... but i wish it would have longer sports seasons. The availability is so so but thats just because of the current principle ( dr.gill) who happens to have really freaky eye brows). The parent involvement is okay ... many parents come to help out teachers... the school it self how ever i would say is not sooo organized. Students are told of school activies the day they happen and there are no fundraisers due to school neglect. Even though patton has its problems it has many less than other schools in the area
