Saxe Middle School is a friendly, welcoming environment. Yes, there is not much diversity, but how can the school help the kind of kids who go there? I first started Saxe in 2014. Every single teacher and student has been nice. There has been a few snarky comments here and there between some kids, but it is completely and totally not enough for any child to feel threatened or hurt in a way that could make them super self conscious. Besides, that is normal in a school, right? Not everyone is going to be nice and caring all the time. All of the teachers care about the students feelings and behavior and will be concerned of anybody looks unhappy. At lunch time, the kids sit in different groups of friends, sort of like cliques. But, almost every kid is happy with their friends. The ones who are not happy are speaking with the guidance counselors, teachers, and their parental guardians. Most kids are really nice and caring at Saxe, I know I have tried to be.

The education at Saxe Middle School is preeminent, however the social aspect of it is sub par. Students at the school, as they age, form more and more cliques, making it uncomfortable for those who are not as sociable or new. Students constantly feel like they are pressured into looking a certain way, and others mock those who are different in terms of looks and the status quo. The academic side of the NCPS district is absolutely fantastic, but the social side is lacking, but there honestly isn't much the teachers and faculty can do, given the privileged background of the majority of the students.
I get it, pop quizzes and tests are part of a school. But should students get made fun of in the halls and feel bad about themselves due to their grades? If I walk down the halls tomorrow I could probably show you over 30 kids being teased about their clothe or on that LA essay that they got a 76 on. Part of it is the area and the kids. The parents of these kids need to take a long hard look at themselves.
The teachers don't know the kind of stress there is. I know someone who was suicidal just because of their social status and grades. Shouldn't students feel as if they can pursue anything in life? Not here, thee teachers personally make sure that if you don't know what the stupid theme of a personal narrative or what SWAT is than you will get nowhere in life. the language system is okay but most of the teachers make you feel stupid.
