Francis Walsh Intermediate School Reviews

3 reviews
Worst school by far. I hated going to walsh, there are no walls, they use dividers.! I remember it being so hard for me to focus, with all the noise from other classrooms! I also remember. So many times, where kids would say mean remarks to me, and the teachers would ignore me when I went to go tell! I also remember NEVER...practicing lock downs or fire drills! Kids would always be fighting, like real fist fights. And the dance team, I remark would always act like they ruled the school. And the boys, would take girls to the bathrooms, and makeout! I can't even start to explain how bad this school is.!

I had a great experience as a middle schooler here. The principal when I was there was not a great leader, but the teachers here are awesome and make learning enjoyable. Since I have left, there have been several incidences of bullying and the administration has done a very poor job in handling the situation. Parents went to the media before administration did their jobs.
Decent But Not Great, We Had A Fire Drill Every Month And Including December Which Is A Short School Months, And There Was No Walls, Good Teaching Though.
