I chose Earl Warren because of its small size. I had hoped it would make it easier for my son to transition to middle school but regret not going to CVMS. I almost pulled him out of EWMS in 7th grade and really wish that I had. He was not challenged at all and did not enjoy his time here. He got A's without doing any homework. When he asked to move up in a subject, they wouldn't let him despite receiving 100s on tests. Sadly, he got used to being lazy. EWMS did not adequately prepare him for the rigors of high school. He did have some great teachers but they were few and far between. The basketball coach was a complete joke (eventually replaced). The office staff are rude and CLEARLY despise young people. I don't know how much they pay the counselor but I'm sure Alexa or Siri could offer more insightful advice. During one meeting, I recounted an episode where a student stole my son's lunch and hid his backpack and she brushed it off with a "yeah, that's just what boys do." I really don't know where they find these people!
less than optimal, while my daughter has mostly excellent teachers, like I mentioned, her science teacher Eric Schaller, is terrible. It's a shame because her favorite subject used to be science. I considered pulling her out of school due to this one teacher's behavior with regard to all the students, but due to friendships she had made and other excellent teachers, did not do so.
The office ataff at this school seems to have a pretty dim view of kids, and to the extent that parents are responsible for producing kids, they seem to really dislike parents too. It just seems like the administrators are excited about building a new campus, and annoyed that there is educating to be done. I wish I sent my child to Carmel Valley Middle instead. It seems like CVMS values education more.
My daughter loves Earl Warren. The academics have been excellent, and the administration has been very responsive to any question or concern we have. Can't wait for the new building next year!
