    Ramona Middle School is a great school.First of all Ramona has a strict dress code that will not let children wear whatever they please. As in really short shorts or inappropriate shirts. Also when state testing comes around all the teachers work really hard to prepare the students. Health wise Ramona has everyone taking PE classes to keep students in shape for example running the mile every Wednesday. And at Ramona there are many great opportunities. My children were in Choir and Band and had the privilege to travel to different states and go to amusement parks and such. Very importantly the children were taught great leadership skills because of two groups called W.E.B and ASB. And these groups teach the kids good leadership skills. My children's favorite part about this school were the action teams. The split up the school by last names and put them in color teams and they would compete throughout the year but the only kids that were able to compete were the ones who got a 3.0 gpa or higher. Another great thing about this school is that in order for the kids to work hard they have great incentives. SEND YOUR KIDS TO RAMONA!

    We've had 2 of our kids go through Ramona & Thank Goodness our last child is almost done! Both of my older kids hated this school my son was bullied. For 2 weeks I complained & nothing was done. After 2 weeks if telling my son to walk away & ignore the bullies I told him to take care of it! I received a call telling me to come pick up my son because he was being suspended for fighting. I informed them that I had all of my complains in writing and recorded. As I arrived to pick up my son I gave them copies of everything just incase they tried to say they lost their copies & I informed them that I would return later in the week with ch. 7 & my child's attorney. Needless to say my son was not suspended but was told not to mention what had happened & to stay away from the bullies who had now turned into the victims! Staff is Rude Teachers are Bullies & Rude. I have encountered some great teachers at Ramona and am so glad my youngest has had a pretty okay time there but I make sure all her teachers know that am there for all & any complains!

    Run for the hills!!! This school is a complete joke!!! From the principle all the way down. Office staff is horrible. With exception of band this place is an embarrassment to the Bonita School District!!!

    Worst Middle school ever!!!!... These 5 star reviews must be staff members posing as parents. This school is a paradise for bullies. My son had numerous incidents and we finally took it up to the principals office and counselor. They said my son was overreacting. Now my son gets bullied for "snitching". In addition there is only few teachers worth giving credit to. This is the worst school my children ever attended. The front office staff is very very rude! We will never return to this school!!!!

    After reading these reviews I had to write my own. My son survived this school only because of his good childhood friends and his awesome young female band instructor. Teachers will not put in any "additional" effort toward helping their students. Some teachers display attitudes like their job is simply a paycheck and not a stepping stone to your child's future. Negative atmosphere. Very disappointing.

    Extremely Unpleasant Atmosphere! Poorly managed and students just can t wait to get out. Things just get worst; This school is never going to be successful. School has way too many students that the staff ignores bad behavior from both teachers and students! If at all possible avoid this school at all costs!

  • (2 years ago)

    AVOID THIS SCHOOL IF POSSIBLE!!! Minimum effort from the teachers. Many of my child's assignments get returned to him ungraded! When I addressed the problem they conceded that it does happen but had an "oh well" attitude! The rude staff walks around like they hate their job and their face hurts. My child would be in private school if I could afford it!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    HORRIBLE experience at Ramona Middle School... This school needs help all the way around! Good luck speaking directly to the principle with concerns the staff cuts you off as they try to handle serious situations themselves. We've had many problems with some of the teachers. Two of them have misplaced multiple assignment of my daughters that I personally helped her in completing. Bullying remains a popular problem that is shrugged off as if the bullied child is overreacting. All of these 5 stars must be from the staff... even if you are if you are lucky enough to have no problems at all it's a 2 or 3 star school at best! In all fairness there's a couple good teachers worth mentioning.

    Ramona middle school is one of the best schools in the San Gabriel Valley. I have had 2 children go through Ramona and have a 3rd child in 6th grade now. My children have received a quality education with a strong math and science background. The math and science teachers here are some of the best around. They are ALWAYS willing to go above and beyond to make sure the students understand the subject. When I have gone to the office the office staff have always been kind and helpful to me. My children are not trouble makers come to school regularly and are polite to their teachers and peers therefore we have never had any trouble with the administration staff or other children.

    Sad Sad School!!! VERY unpleasant office staff!.. You feel the negative energy as soon as you enter! Ramona is weak on Bullying!!! My child along with 'countless' other parents have told us they are having the exact same problems!!! Your child will just be a number at this school... way over crowded! Your child will not get much one on one attention! I do NOT recommend!

    This has been a great school for my child. Being in education myself I have been extremely impressed with the administration and the teachers. This is our 2nd year at Ramona and at Back to School Night this year you could definitely see the continuity between the subject areas and the pride the teachers and staff had in the school. It is so nice to see such positive energy and dedication from the Ramona Staff! You ROCK!

    My parents took me out of this school but not because of bullies because i actually couldn't get my grads up.It was very hard for me to achieve my goals here becase some teachers didnt have time for me! until i finally couldnt take the pressure and i told my parents.It was horrible!!! i thought this school would be better but it made me dissapointed

    Unfriendly office staff weak administration and very few teachers willing to put in extra effort to help students in need. I have had 3 children go through this school and have watched it go from bad to worse in the past 3 years.

    We have a daughter who is in 7th grade and loves the school teachers and staff. We have had no problems with any teachers or staff they have been professional in every way possible. An awesome school that we would recomend to anyone.

    I rate them a thumbs down. Completely disappointed. High volume of bullies. I was so depressed. Administrative staffs are very truculent. I did love being a teachers aid. JR

    Our experience with this middle school has been tremendously disappointing. We have 5 children 2 of which have attended this school. The attitude of the administrative staff has declined and their attention to students is derisory. My many attempts to communicate with staff were received unpositively. Leadership is definitely lacking at this school and there are little to few attempts to keep students' morale up.

    Ramona is an AWESOME school. If you want to know which teachers are best here they are For sixth grade the best teacher is Ms. Berkler who is a Physical Education teacher who pushes the students to new heights in their personal fitness. For seventh grade the best teacher is Ms. Stenmo who teaches English. She is young funny modern has a great vocabulary and loves UCLA. For eighth grade I choose Mrs. Brownlee who teaches Algebra. I do not have her as a teacher but as a tutor. She pushes her students to their full potential and is very appreciative of her students.

    I was very disappointed with this school. I was expecting more. The teachers weren't very nice or smart in my opinion.The principle could have been nicer and more understanding of the children's needs
