Elmwood Park Middle School Reviews

I’m currently a middle school student here, and I dislike it. The only thing I love about it is the clubs and activities. The theater program is amazing (I only suggest it if you’re dedicated)! Personally, the academics are horrible! I’ve learned nothing in this school year since I’ve either learned it from my old school or individually. Some of the teachers are bad and some of them are amazing. There are 2 teachers that I can talk to like friends. If I could give the college readiness no stars, I would. I’m planning to go to private schools and Bergen Academies that will actually help me. This is my opinion of the school.

The dress code is heavily enforced. Overall a very clean and neat school. Teachers care about the opinions of other teachers than about the students. There are many clubs. The drama program is very very good. Sports are pretty well.
Most of the teachers in this school are lazy, making us repeat the same lesson over and over again. Everyday we should learn something new. Only 1/4 or 1/2 of the teachers actually care for us trying each day to make us smart kids. Also, substitutes are the most laziest human beings I have ever seen.
Leadership is not a word in this school. Every single kid except hard-workers doesn't have that word in their dictionary. Mostly every week there is a fight, and people are so foolish/mindless to laugh and record it. What is wrong with these kids. Respect doesn't occur in this school. I feel terrible for the diligent kids who try their hardest. People choose the wrong leaders. The popular kid are "leaders" apparently making kids do their inappropriate actions. There is even no such thing as popular kids. The smart kids are showing the "popular kids" how to act and work vividly, but the popular kids chose not to follow them.
