W.G. Sanders Middle School Reviews

My child attends the Sanders Middle Montessori Program. The program is just three years old now and is still growing. The teachers are skilled and thoughtful and easily approachable. They truly care about the students they teach. I would like to see the Montessori practices spread to the rest of the school. The valuable life lessons in independence, responsibility, caring, and peace are necessary for all students.

Honestly the school (magnet program) could do better because the teachers are purposely trying to fail students. I've had my student record a day in class and I've seen teachers refuse work from other students then their parents calling and asking if my student was refused work. The teachers are also terrible at communication. If I email a teacher it could take almost 3 weeks to respond. Overall I think the magnet program could to better.
