0/10 I would not recommend this school
My son make honor roll at his last school now he is failing, he is not getting any help from his science teacher
I had a better experience at this school both socially and academically than any other school I've ever been to.
Alice Vail, striving to be the low point of any educational experience, OR at the very least, the worst administrative experience you will ever have. The office staff is very rude, don't count on feeling welcomed here. Coming from Kellond Elementary school where the entire school is cheerful and wraps you in a sense of welcome, it was a culture shock to walk into a building and feel as if I should be going elsewhere. This is exactly what I did. I registered my daughter for 6th grade and received her schedule with missing teachers. The explanation? They don't yet know who it's going to be...two days before school started. I ask about lockers, not doing lockers this year -- too many kids, not enough lockers to go around. I asked about an open house because my daughter is new to the school and middle school -- "we don't do open houses." May I walk her around the school right now to get her familiarized with the room numbers -- "sure knock yourself out." I begin walking her around and explaining what I THINK the flow for the day might be based on the paper. Find the cafeteria, find the classrooms and as I am doing this I pass a classroom with what I am assuming is a group of teachers talking about how bad this year is going to be and how things are a mess. At that point I am done. I have not had expierence with the curriculum at this school. I don't want it after the administrative nightmare I just went through. I got the feeling my child is just another head to count for funding.
