August Boeger Junior High School Reviews
My experience with August Boeger has been great!!! The office staff is friendly. The teachers are so supportive with my child's education. The teachers are nice, fun, and smart.
I'm not sure why others have given negative reviews, but as a parent of August Boeger, I'm glad that my child attends this school.
My experience at August Boeger for a year was horrible. I had a teacher who favored me over others. The teachers weren't really helping my peers. All the teachers did was teach something and let the students work, laugh, and fool around. Every single day, I would hear many swear words from students, and sometimes teachers. I luckily moved to a better school. If I could give Boeger a 0/5 star, I would.
My experience is positive....Remember a child's character is determined at home and his/her peers are also influenced by his/her direction in life. These teachers are providing a positive influence...Maybe its the home that needs adjusting and not the school.
August Boeger should not be categorized as a Junior High but more like a prep school for Juvenile Hall. They treat their students like prisoners. I tried to get a transfer for my child and the school refused to let him go. My child is not at all accustomed to the way these students behave and what actually takes place on campus. Because the transfer was refused, we are selling our home and relocating back to the Evergreen district. You should not have to fear sending your child to school every day as I have experienced this past school year. I recommend "YOU NOT ENROLL YOUR CHILD".
This has very poor quality teachers because each time I ask my daughter what she learned at school all she says is the kids swear alot to her and the teacher which means this school should handle these students properly.
