Sinaloa Middle School Reviews
This school has changed for the
worse since it merged with Hill. My son
has special needs but the school
wouldn't do anything for him, except
punish him for forgetting his HW.
I had to transfer him to a
charter school so he could get the help
he needs to succeed. Big mistake to send
your kids to a school with 800 kids, kids going to Sinaloa need
to be already A students and able to keep up.
My second child is just about to start the 8th grade. Both my children attended Sinaloa. My oldest had troubles focusing and adjusting to middle school. The staff was very helpful and had several programs in place to help my child. My second child has learning disabilities and is in resource. The staff at Sinaloa has made tremendous progress with my child. Mr. Matern started a special English class to help all students who are not reading at grade level. He and the resource teachers made more progress in my child's reading ability than any other teachers my child has had.
