Rating 3.96 out of 5 52 reviews
i would like to say that the start of the years was good but as time went on students starting getting aggravated with each other and what i thought was a friendly school turned out to be full of sensitive people. everything was good idk what happened. so idk how to rate this
Sizer is a Charter school that focuses on participation and happiness and comfortness of students and teachers.
I love the inclusiveness that the school offers. The teachers are so willing to help the students and it is so nice to be there. The student to faculty ratio is low so that helps a lot ad well.
I like Sizer School because of the community. Everyone is willing to offer any kind of help and support you need and to make high school has enjoyable as possible while still encouraging you to challenge yourself. I would like to see a change in student-participation in more activities such as sports, dances, and clubs because I think it will make high school a more enjoyable experience for everyone.
This school has so many students that do not care about academics, and yet they refuse to ever recognize the students that do well academically. No honor roll, no National Honor Society! Instead of trying to motivate and challenge students that do not perform well academically, they baby them and lower their expectations from those students. Horrible sports programs. The gym teacher is the coach of practically every sport. Lunch is horrible and overpriced for those that do not qualify for free lunch. There is no SAT prep at all, like zero prep! Students sign up for the SAT and go at it on their own. There is very high turnover among faculty and staff! They are starting to offer some AP classes, but those offerings are still not up to par with what other schools in the area offer. This school has a lot of work to do to improve and send these kids off to college and the work force as prepared as they should be!
I love how the teachers are so flexible with their schedules and also that the class sizes are so small. It makes it so much easier to ask for help and they are willing to help no matter what.
It’s a great school for kids who need a more personal learning experience. The teachers are always Willing to listen to their student’s needs.
i think that sizer school is a good fit for any student that doesn't like the traditional big classrooms and prefers to be in a class with less people the school also has great counselors and staff to help you get ready for college
The small class sizes allowed for unique one on one learning experiences and the building was brand new which provided a very sophisticated learning environment, overall I had a very good experience I met plenty of kind, loving people, and I learned the skills necessary to succeed in life.
the class sizes are smaler than most schools. theres only 400 kinds in all the grades (7-12). everyone here is alowed to be them no matter what religion, who they like, who they want to be, or skin color
I am currently enrolled in Sizer School, and it has come a long, long way since being in the old Notre Dame school building. The food is still mediocre, but edible, the teachers are some of the best I have ever had the pleasure to be taught by, and the people (any grade above 8th) are kind and understanding. The only problem is when 7th and 8th join sizer, they don't get what this school is about, so they think they can act like Fitchburg Public School kids and get away with it. This school has changed me from the weird, reclusive kid who reads books into an outgoing person who is on the rise to be a professional yoyoer. I love this school and the community it has. Also the academics are different from regular schools. 8/10 would recommend.
I have been at Sizer for 3 1/2 years. Sizer teachers are immensly patient, kind, and authentically caring. Academics are ok. But the social life there is bright and vibrant.
My time at Sizer was very enjoyable. Over my time at the school I met some very interesting people, most being very friendly. The teachers I had were always very kind and I would even consider a few of them friends now. There was alway help available to those who needed it
Overall I would say that I had a good experience there. I would not say that it was great but it was better than my home town school. I would say that my expectations were not always met. But I did build a strong sense of community and the teachers were amazing. The leadership could use some work and maybe more organization.
This school allows you to grow in a judgement free environment where nobody will feel alone or and outsider. Think Care Act is there goal. They want everyone at Sizer to be their best selves and to Think for yourself Care about others and to Act on making the world a better place.
I have been at Sizer for two years now. I love most of the staff. I always walk in being greeted by a staff member. The kids, parents, coaches, teachers, and other faculty members work endlessly to make it good for everyone.
I loved going here! The students really have a voice in their education, and their learning can be fit costumed to their needs! There's a lot of school spirit, from monthly community meetings, to our various varsity sport team.
