Kernan Middle School Reviews
It's bad there. The teachers don't give you a chance to learn anything before getting mad at you and sending you out. They all pick favorite students and it takes a week to learn a single lesson. Because of that school, I was confused the first 3 weeks of high school. DO NOT GO HERE!!! (Edited by Education.com staff)
I really do not reccomend this school to anyone at all. It is tremendously terrible and the school hours are very messed up. If you have a student who does extra things outside of school, trust me you will not be able to do it. It really takes time away from after school activities. It's kinda like having no life besides school because of the school hours. The schools academics is not the best. I reccomend not to go to this school. It really doesn't prepare you for high school because they do not offer the A day B day schuedule either. So basically I truly don't reccommend this to anybody. Sorry.
This school does not serve special needs students well. They "mainstream" without support. The exception is the self contained wing which does an amazing job with the special needs students. However, it was decided that my autistic child needed to be mainstreamed without proper testing and she is now frustrated and unable to keep up with the work. Don't try to communicate with the teachers, as they don't respond to emails or phone calls. I would never recommend this school for any child with mild to moderate cognitive disabilities. They just don't support the children well enough.
This school is the best! This school prepared me when I went to Paxon School of Advanced Studies! This is a great school! I hope you choose to come here! :) good luck!
