Redan Middle School Reviews
Redan Middle School was a very good school for my daughter. She participated in the band and other organizations. The teachers were very attentive and they kept us very informed of her progress. Parent Portal was available and whenever I had any issues or concerns I was able to contact the office and the teachers and they were all very professional and helpful. What parents have to remember is they have to train the children at home first and then work with the teachers and administration in order to make changes on issues that observe are not meeting their satisfaction. Join the PTA and volunteer your time and services to make a difference. Redan provided my student with the knowledge, leadership and motivation that she need to excel and now she is a Senior at Redan High School. Just because you are in an area where there are mostly African Americans doesn't mean that the school system is not a good one. That is where some fail to achieve excellence due to stereotypically views.
The enrollment has gone down at Redan Middle School since 2011. People are leaving to attend other schools.
Redan middle school needs too be shut down. Redan middle school is horrible they don't even have a nurse and they don't even no how too talk too the children. [content removed by School Finder Review Team]. The staff forget that they are suppose to treat these children like children and respect them. They will talk too the children as if they were adults . They need too replace the majority of they staff. I as a parent think we as parents need too voice our issues with the board of Education . If that don't work then we start going higher up.
I'm not sure if all Dekalb Co public schools are like this, but this has to be one of the most ghetto schools my child has attended. The staff, from the front of the school to the back, acts as if this is home and not a place of business. The teachers, those I've had contact with, are rude. They treat the children as if they have no feelings. And some are even disrespectful. I've had an issue with this facility from the first day my child stepped foot in the building. No organization. Looking forward to moving away from this district.
The staff at Redan Middle school is tired. They have bad nerves and some of them should not t be teaching. The cafeteria staff is ghetto. All they do is scream at the children. They act like their at a prison and our children are the prisioners. The children are made to carry heavy books around. They are only allowed to go to their lockers in the morning and 4th period. Meanwhile our childrens backs are being destroyed. They have no solutions. Their outdated and disconnected. Their awful. They don't care about the students. NO COMMON SENSE.
