There is a schism between the performance and atmosphere of this school. Although you cant argue with the performance, you may ask attending children about how they feel about continuing to attend this school. There is a significant segregation between students that are accepted, and those that feel bullied. There are also predominantly newer/younger teachers that do not fit the conventional mold in appearance,actions, or attitudes. This is a great facility in a very good district, but has issues to overcome.

Hi, I attended Verrado Middle School for about a month after I relized that the academics that I was learning were way behind. I am in 7 grade honors and I still feel behind in what I am learning. I feel that the math teachers are not really that observant of where their students are. If your child has gone to a private/christian school before I would not recommend this school just because they WILL become behind in their academics. The teachers and staff overall there are very nice and observant. The students have a lot of secretive things going on that most of the teachers fail to see. Once again I am on 7 grade honors. I am convincing my parents to send me back to my previous private school only becuase I absolutley love the enviroment there and I do not feel like I am becoming dumber by the second.
