OK so lets start. (everything is from MY experience and point of view. No teachers/admin names will be mentioned.):School Environment:1. Lots of people were very mean to me, teachers did nothing about it.2. There is a police man at this school, and apparently it's for "safety," but in reality he is dealing with behavioral issues in school or trying to investigate drama with the students. This person even made a Snapchat account and pretended to be a student to be friends with different people on this social media platform.3. School gives MacBooks for technology, but on all school technology there is a application, "LanSchool" and this pretty much gives teachers and admin the ability to control you. I will go more in depth down below.4. Really good services for kids with disabilities, but they didn't really have a lot to offer for kids that are very fidgety or anxious, or for kids with ADHD, etc.5. Now this one, this is the dumbest and most unnecessary thing this middle school has ever done. In the lunchroom, there are ASSIGNED SEATS and if you don't sit in that seat, you get detention. Pretty stupid, right? Don't ask me why they did this, but they did it, and everyone hated it, and they had no reason to do it that the students were aware of. It started in the school year of 2019-2020, but I'm not sure if they are still going to do it in years to come.Teachers:1. Hit or miss, most are nice though. Some have very strong political and religious opinions.2. A lot used LanSchool and I personally got very annoyed. It's almost like they were looking for someone to write up. Ex: I had free time in my 7th period class, so I played games. Just like any other middle school student would. 3. A lot of teachers give out unnecessary referrals/detentions.Homework:1. The homework is like any other school, practice the subject in class, and bring a worksheet or digital assignment home to do. Sometimes it's a lot but it wasn't horrible.Administration:1. What people in the school has told me about administration:a. People have said that the administration is unfair, "bogus," and that they do not hear both sides of the story before assigning a consequence to a person.2: My experiences with the administration:a. The administration when I was in this school was mostly unreasonable. Locker/backpack checks were frequent(looking for vapes or other drugs,) and almost NO ONE gets out of this school without a referral of some sort. Most referrals are about tech usage
My experience at this school is awful so far. I am "failing" my classes just because my teachers don't like me. I have been bullied on multiple occasions, and have reported them all on the "school helpline". They did NOTHING. I was physically and verbally abused, and I was accused of lying about it and they believed it.
There is a police officer at the school everyday. They say it is for protection. Get it right, he is there due to lots of problems in the school. He is constantly investigating big issues. The principal is clueless and needs to go back to Elementary school. The superintendent is covering up a race problem. The minority students are not successful and are leaving. There are little to no minority teachers, and even less in leadership positions. Look up the success of minorities at this school and you will see what I mean.
JAY STREAM IS BY FAR THE WORST SCHOOL EVER!!!!MY SON WAS REPEATEDLY CALLED NAMES AND BEEN PUT DOWN BY HIS OWN TEACHERS!!!!
