Good school, my 2 boys went there. Only thing is the location were next to the cemetery.
This school has a high incidents of bullying. The administration does it best with controlling it, but I can tell you that SO much goes on that they can't control it. It's especially among girls. Some of them are totally out of control in the classroom and in interpersonal relations with other girls. Boys here seem much nicer. Recommend this school for boys but not necessarily for girls who may be more susceptible to bullying from other girls. The teachers - with one or two exceptions- are fantastic. They are so committed and understanding. Our child has depression and anxiety and the whole staff- from each teacher to the administration- have been SO supportive. Doesn't mean they could stop the almost daily bullying. They can''t be everywhere. But this can- and will- happen at any middle school and high school. It needs to have severe consequences, but suspensions and expulsions are now frowned upon the state. Worst punishment here is that the repulsive student has to have lunch with the vice-principal. Just keep in mind that 95% of the teachers here are very sweet, are totally receptive to your wishes, and are SO supportive of the child and their parents.
We were worried to send our child to Sylvan based on the comments from Great Schools, however we have been pleasantly surprised on how well the school has been for my child. Please take the reviews listed on this site with a grain of salt. Visit the school site and talk to the staff. The school has recently been rebuilt, and both the STEM and Band program are excellent.
This school is good but bad. About three teachers ruin this school.. If your on the honor role and avid, you should get a really good education, if your not, hope you don't get the teachers that scream at you and don't teach you.
