South Lake Middle School Reviews
The student/teacher ratio of 19/1 is FALSE, my son is in 7th grade and there are 27-31 students per class with no teaching assistants, just a single teacher. The students are out of control, teachers GIVE out the answers in class and the majority of the kids are still failing because they don't care enough to even write down the correct answers. Fights break out several times a week. Principles/teachers claim to have a "zero tolerance" policy to bullying but when a child addresses the situation with a teacher/principle they are told, "well I didn't see it." My son came from a private school to this public school and says himself, "this is a horrible learning environment."
