Our experience has been pretty good. There were some hiccups in my daughter's first year due to overly strict dress code enforcement and a bizarre no backpack rule, but this has since calmed down with the new principal. This school is now STEM certified as of late last school year. My daughter is going into 8th grade this year and has always been in the AP classes. Her grades are decent and the staff are very supportive of their students and the extracurricular activities they take on. Overall, I'd rate this school as Very Good with teachers that really do care about their students.
My child was in the gifted program and we did not agree with the way they put our child on a pedestal. She hated it. .she had to sit on an elevated level at lunch ... above her friends, looking down on her friends ..
School seems to have some issues with bullying. My child came home upset numerous times complaining about the bullying. I tried getting the teachers to deal with it but they seemed to minimize it as my child being too sensitive. I discussed the issue with other parents on Facebook and found numerous parents with children being bullied and parents being unable to get the school staff to deal with it. My child also said and other children and parents have expressed concern that teachers push politics in the classroom and belittled children who don't agree with the teachers political views. I've also heard that some teachers use profanity in the classroom. A parent sent me a Facebook screen shot where a teacher told a child it needed to be "educated on politics" because of the child's political views. Obviously a child expresses its political views from its parents, so where does a country employee or teacher find they have a right to criticize a child views taught to it by its parents? Thankfully, my child is out of this school district.
I don't agree with this statement. My son had an A-B average and was a 4-H club President in his elementary school in another state. I put him in St. Marys middle school and his grades dropped and so did his self-esteem. I know the school has a severe bullying problem but I'm not sure if its the county administration or teachers who ignore it. Either way, i would not recommend this school. Home school your child or put them in private school.
