Robert K. Shafer Middle School Reviews

One thing I can say about my school is it is very diverse. I moved to this district when I was in middle school and it has changed me for the better. I have seen so many barriers broken between people and have learned to respect so many people's differences. I do not feel like a misfit and even if I did there are misfits here too. I notice that new students that come to the school make friends at least a week into their arrival. Of course, this schools has its social scales (popular kids, geeks, jocks, goths, etc), but there are a variety of races in those groups.

The students at my school are like most other high school students. Some students party every weekend, others study all weekend and some go to the mall. Everyone is so different it is difficult to tell who is who anymore.

My school handles health issues well for the most part. I hear some people complain that nurse is not too helpful, but in my experiences the nurse has done all she can for me. In regards to bullying, I see little to none of it. Perhaps I cannot tell or bullying is not tolerated at all here. My school is undergoing construction, so the hallways can be cramped and stuffy at times. I know that it will pay off in the end though, and I have yet to see someone pass out from cramped space. In general, I have a safe school and I am glad to attend it.
