    This is school is nothing but a mess. I knew a kid that went there in elementary school and brought lice into the middle school. You hear a lot of people talking about how bad R.A Jones Middle School is but it is no where as near as bad a this. They have no respect for the children as I know for a fact because 3 of my cousins have went there and 1 of my cousins go there now all split apart in age by 3 years. The school is like a below commenter said infested with bed bugs and lice making my mom(the one that takes care of my four cousins) spend money she doesn't have. She has 4 nieces and nephews to worry about plus myself and my 3 brothers and sisters. 8 kids . She shouldn't have to worry about this. The teachers have no potential or joy for teaching the kids also. At this point 9th district should just be demolished to save hundreds of families the trouble.

    Mr. Shephard has proven himself in the short time school has been in session. Two out of the 3 children have great teachers this year. I do take issue with a 3rd grade teacher who deems it appropriate to discuss her personal life with her students. I still have a very BIG issue with teachers and teacher's aides who have assaulted children still teaching. However since it seems to have been aimed at the child who is disabled there seems to be no issues with the other two children. I stand firm in my belief that these two teachers should NOT be working with children since they themselves have issues controlling themselves. They are NOT good role models for elementary children.

    I had a terrible experience here the environment was severely caustic. The classroom was out of control and a student assaulted a teacher.

    This school is horrible!! It only gets one star because you can't post a review without at least one star. The academics are subpar at best my children could probably learn more watching educational TV than they do in this school. The staff with the exception of a few good ones are a joke. They do not care about the children in this school they care about money. The school is also infested with bed bugs and lice and they could care less and do not do anything to prevent it. Yet they expect you to send your child into this bug pit everyday and spend all your money trying to keep your home pest free. If you happen to have a child with a learning or behavioral disability then please turn around and find another school. This school is not interested in putting in the work with your child to make sure they are successful their solution is to urge you to put them on medicine so they don't have to do anything even if the child can be helped without medicine. There are many more issues with this school but they won't let you post on here if you write them so I will just say read what it won't let you post and come up with your own conclusions from there.

    I really like Ninth District. I wasn't sure about sending my son to a public school but I have been pleased overall. The teachers are very helpful and usualy we get regular updates on things that are going on at the school and with my son's progress. My only gripe is that there aren't any art or music classes but I understand that is how it is at most schools now.

    My son graduated from 9th Dist. and now my grandchildren are going. I have the highest regards for this administration. They love the children and try diligently everyday to teach them respect dignity along with learning lifeskills they need in everyday life. The academic excellence is achieved on EVERY level. Mr. Lockerd Mr. Ross and the teachers EXPECT respect achievement and are all excited about their jobs. The children feel that excitement and expectations and try their best to achieve what is put before them. Thank you thank you to this administration for making it exciting and challenging to go to school! Keep up the good work!

    I am very pleased with this school and the academic progress that my daughter has recieved here. I choose this school for my child to attened because it was very well now for its education level. The teachers are very helpful when you ask them about your child and how they are doing they tell you and if you want any extra work for them to do or ideas to help them improve they are out to help you in any way.

    My granddaughter attends this school and I am very pleased with the school as far as handling problems with the children fighting Mr.Ross and Mr.Lockerd were extremly helpfull with the problem when ever I or my daughter call on their assitance they were helpful to us the problem was solved. I see both principles outside in the morning and afternoon interacting with the students and monitering the buses now the bus drivers I dont agree with they dont pay attention to the children fights occur on the bus and they do nothing except watch or do nothing. And as far as activities thay have very few which should be addressed over all I sincerly like the school.

    The quality of academic programs is poor. Music is offered to few. Art class-none. Sports-not offered by the school. Extracurricular activities-few. The children play in a parking lot barely supervised. Gym is on average twice a week and can be taken away as punishment. This happens frequently. Physical education is poor at this school. Violence among the students is a problem shoddily dealt with by the Principal and with my experience this year the teachers as well. When you want answers and results you get excuses. The only reason I will rate highly for parent involvement is because parents are almost discluded when it comes to their children's progress (or the lack there-of) academically until report card time. We're forced to drill staff about academic problems. Children's grades rest on the children's/parent's shoulders solely. Homework time is a joke. My child's grades and morale have fallen dramatically at this school.
