Open Quote I have two children who currently attend the middle school and I can't be more pleased. Both of my boys are thriving and I truly believe it's because of the teachers and administrators. I am writing this review specifically because when I went to the most recent teacher conferences, I got the feeling of - wow these teachers really know my kids and genuinely care about them. One of my boys has an IEP and the support he gets is amazing. I was worried about him starting 6th grade but all those worries are gone now. My kids are so lucky to have such a nice school on a beautiful campus with so many educational opportunities. We are looking forward to the high school years! Close Quote

Open Quote I would not go to this school next year. The school is not CLEAN at all! There are bugs, no locks on bathrooms, and rude kids. There is so MUCH Bullying that happens, that they have Bully forms in each room! The teachers are all right, but they don't know how to calm the students down. This is a school with a lot of "Derelict" kids. It is not a very safe school either, they do not even lock the front doors. This is a very rude, disrespectful school, that I would not want to send my child in! Close Quote

Open Quote I go to this school i am in 8th grade and it is my last year here. This school isnt good at all. All the roofs leack even when there isnt rain. Kids always smoke in the bathrooms. There are cockroches. My locker had ants in it when i didnt even have food in my locker. It was from a locker a few rows down and it spread to every locker in the hallway. The water is brown. Theres alot of drugs and drinking mixed up too. There is alot more to say thats not good about this school. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
