River Trail Middle School Reviews
This school does not put the students first, the administration is allowed to behave in contradiction to their own code of conduct manual. They expect the kids to act and behave according to this manual while the administration does not follow Fulton County's policies listed in the Code of conduct manual. The administration has engaged in verbally abusive behaviors, when we contacted the area superintendent (Moran) she did not have the descency to respond to our concerns. If you have a child with an IEP, your child will not get the proper services, even when they need minor accomodations. If you love your child, do not send him/her here, there are plenty of other schools that test well and have your childs best interest at heart. Please visit the school and talk with parents during car pool prior to choosing the school, you will get more information than just test scores. I simply looked at test scores, I am sorry I did not talk with parents. I know plenty of parents now that hate the school. I have had two kids attend and I have had mostly bad experiences, some teachers were great, but unfortunately it wasn't enough to make it worth it for us. Good luck and God bless.
This school is very good with the teachers, but once you go up the grades, they are more strict which is a bit of a shock for someone coming from a softer school with lower standards.
Although, a few years, say 3, there have been quite a few bad influence kids coming in from the surrounding schools, I highly encourage parents to stay away from these influences or try to stop the influences BEFORE they go to far
as for the other comment... only a few kids do not listen to teachers, they'll cycle out of the school eventually, this school is trying quiite hard to get them to act correctly
