Very pleased with this school's understanding of what middle school kids need. The admin is fantastic and sensitive to the unique needs of this age group. The teachers seem to truly LIKE their students (tough to find in a middle school IMO). Parent involvement is still encouraged and respected at an appropriate level for this age group. I never felt my input or involvement was unwanted or underestimated. One negative is that as a spouse of an educator in the High School this school feeds into is that students are too easily promoted without all the tools and preparation necessary for high school. As a parent I also was surprised how little homework my student had. I don't believe he was challenged to meet his academic potential enough or held accountable for his slip-ups in his school work. All in all I feel confident in this school and would send my kids there again without hesitation. I have always felt that any serious problem I had would be heard and dealt with effectively which is very reassuring.
