Stilwell Junior High School Reviews

2 reviews
Stilwell is generally just a bad school. The parking lot is one of the worst parking lots I've ever seen- there's barely anyone monitoring them and I'm surprised a kid hasn't been hit by a car any time recently because of it. It's cluttered, messy, and just horribly made. Anyways, the staff is kind of bad too, a lot of the staff don't even like kids, and they make our learning experience absolute hell because they're always yelling about unnecessary things, and being rude for no reason. For example, my friend greeted a teacher in the hallway and said 'hello Mrs. ___" and she lectured him about respect for no reason. The school sucks when it comes to sports, considering none of the seventh graders get sports, but eighth graders do. I must say, there are many other good things here, but because the bad is so... well, bad, it doesn't make it any better.

Seventh and Eighth-grade school kinda small for so many students.Great teacher but the food is not that good sometimes the chicken is undercooked and pink. Many clubs here like best buddies, chess, and more. The sports here are ok but practices are at bad times like in the cold and when it's raining.
