Ponderosa Middle School Reviews

Ponderosa may be considered a terrible school to some, but I found my time at Ponderosa was great. Not only are the teachers great but they genuinely care for the students and that's pretty rare. The academics are subpar ever since they got rid of advanced classes for God only knows why. But other than that the main reason Ponderosa has a terrible reputation is because of the students. Most of the students care very little about their future and/or their reputation. I believe Ponderosa would be an excellent school if they brought back those absolutely wonderful advanced classes. But that's all I have to say. So thank you for taking the time to read my review and have a nice day.

When I went to Ponderosa Middle School I was Bullied Cyber-Bullied and picked on. When me and my mom when to the Principle and Vice Principle they said they couldn't do anything and that they would try to keep and eye out. Trying isn't good enough they need to work to get there students from being bullied. If you are still interested look at the popular group in 8th grade and more snobby girls. These girls have caused more drama and pain for more girls i know not just me. My bullying got so bad i had to leave the school for a month and when i did i didn't get better. I was home schooled and they sent me a picture saying I didn't have any friends. The teachers are wonderful but my experience didn't happen with the teachers it happened with the students.
This school is terrible these teachers don't do anything they give us 30 min to eat and cut that off to the teachers are very rude. Good kids get punishments bad kids get nothing. The food is Terrible aswell. Nothing but terrible reviews from this school.
