Preston Middle School Ratings & Reviews

Rampant bullying.Preston Middle School continues to be a protective haven for bullies. It is incredibly aggravating for us parents. I think it’s because the administration is made up bullies who can’t even put a sentence together and who go out of their way to make sure no bully is ever punished. The only reason a parent would write a positive review of Preston would be if their kid is one of the bullies and it’s a clueless parent who thinks everything is hunky dory. I have seen that kind. If your kid is smart, creative, talented, and caring, please please do not put your kid in this hellhole. This school is a disgrace to Fort Collins.

Preston has lots of great technology and offers many different enrichment programs. The teachers are all so great about communicating with parents which helps us stay on top of our kids to make sure they are getting stuff done.

I can't help but think that whichever parent left a good review for this school must have had one of the bullies as their kid. Bullying is out of control. And the school does nothing, absolutely nothing about it. We have so many neighbors and friends who are constantly complaining about the school not doing a single thing about the bullying. If you want the full-on inner city experience, this would be the school. If you have a kid who is a bully who doesn't want to suffer any consequences, this would be the school.

Many here have stated wonderful and glowing reviews, so I'll share some of the less desirable aspects that I/we have encountered:1. Clique-ish at times - My daughter is a wonderfully balanced girl, with a great smile and outgoing personality. Despite this, she has found the atmosphere at Preston to be heavily clique-ish. I wonder how much worse it might be for someone with a different background or (gasp) different skin color.2. Rushed pace in hallway / heavy load - In between classes, the halls are apparently very crowded, and there is very little time to get from one class to the others (a "rat race"). The kids are loaded down with backpacks that would be too heavy for most adults.3. Overemphasis of learning on computers - Despite the importance of computers, sometimes they can be simply the wrong approach. It was disturbing to see reading lessons on the computer where it controlled the reading speed. I'm an avid reader, and even I couldn't keep up the brisk automated pace. I too had to skip over words, and basically lose most of the meaning of the stories. Very disappointing and frustrating to see.4. The office tends to be staffed with students. Visits or calls to the office for important matters feel through the cracks on numerous occasions.5. The teaching staff seems too heavily weighted towards the young end (20's/30's). There is a lack of maturity and wisdom that would help counter the untested and trendy ideas that they come up with, and weak resolutions to issues.6. No auditorium - Music programs happen in the un-airconditioned, bleachered, poorly acoustic gymnasium
