My child was severely bullied on the bus. After many complaints from me the bullying continued. Students found my child on social media websites and left him messages to commit suicide, that he was going to get beat up at school. Kids stole his cell phone on the bus. He was also attacked by a classmate in the bathroom. Admin was very understanding but no issues were resolved by the end of the school year. I had to go to the police over these issues.
MS. Calvin has definitely brought a freshness to the school, she is the epitome of professionalism, her and the assistant principal. The teachers are ready, eager , and enthusiastic. A far cry from previous leadership, MS. Calvin's presence can be felt, it's great to have a principal that is diplomatic and knows how to communicate with parents and with her staff. The front office, is also extremely professional, pleasant even when they are busy. Hopefully the principal and assistant principal are in it for the long run, I think under their leadership Sauk has the ability to soar!!
And I will never recommend this school. The teachers were so strict. It's also a poor learning environment and some of the teachers were really not good in their jobs. They just don't care if a student feels lost, but anyway, I think most of the students here don't care at all! I always hear curses and see obscene things from students, but the teacher doesn't even care! All of them just don't care about their students. I'm a very bright student, so I can see in an outsider's perspective, and I can say that the school is really not good. Teachers were just after the textbooks, and we watch movies all the time. Most of the students were just copying off with each other. We really don't have a real 'quiz'. We can answer any packet open notes, so our only problem is finding the answer on the textbook. Never really taught me anything. No studying for the test or whatever. It's really... frustrating. When a bad kid starts something, it affects us as a class, and I really am angry about it. Most of the students were trying to fit in the cool crowd, and I just hate the school. Don't send your children here, trust me.
I agree with one of the other comments about the principal and staff having a mean streak and they are good at making kids feel hated. I would not recommend this school. I don't feel that they put the kids first. The most important thing should be providing a quality education but I don't feel that this is the school's top priority. If you have the opportunity to put your child in another school I strongly suggest that you do so.
