This school was EXCELLENT for my child! The teachers and staff are all very kind and welcoming. Students are not afraid to get help or speak out. In 7th and 8th grade your child will be given the option(it's is NOT required) to be part of a program called "Project i". This is a project and independent based learning curriculum that lets the student work at their own pace with help when needed. On top of this, the teachers in this program are absolutely AMAZING! The music and elective department at Lake Denoon Middle is also very well run and there are many choices for your child to choose from.
Lake Denoon is a school with high standards, friendly teachers and many opportunities for students. Staff communicates with families and has the best interest of students and helping all kids to grow and learn. A number of teachers have noticed the strengths and needs of my children to help me as a parent support their growth and academic and social needs. I would recommend this school and living in this district to any family.
Students have a unique opportunity with any/all resources they could want. They are given their individual device, classrooms with interactive technology, thousands of books, and multiple afterschool activities each and every day. In addition to the incredible resources, the teachers care immensely for their students. Not only are teachers willing to do whatever it takes for a child during class, but they are available before school, after school, through email, Infinite Campus, and between classes. I have yet to meet a teacher at this school that refuses to do whatever it takes for a student. Reflecting on my middle school experience, this by far supersedes any opportunities I had.
Without training the teachers and holding them accountable for clear and safe communication with students is NOT superior, and extremely frustrating! Clear instructions that years before had been printed and handed to students to re-read and follow at home, is now verbal. (Even in College, professors will allow you to download a syllabus and instructions.) 10-12 year old's are not expert note-takers. They are not extremely organized. Nor do they have mind-reading capabilities. In our experience, instructions via Gmail, classroom websites, and Infinite campus are not cohesive or consistent. Teachers partially prepare websites, only to stop updating them half-way through the year. There are bits and pieces of information all over, but not a single place that you can find dependable,updated, and accurate information about assignment details, grades, or classroom agendas. Teachers send mass emails, outwardly sharing students gmail addresses. Parents cannot control the privacy or security settings. No protection from harmful youtube videos? Technology is important. BUT, we don't appreciate our children to be used as guinea pigs while the school works out the kinks.
