Handy Middle School Ratings & Reviews

February 03, 2016 Submitted by a parent
This school gets a bad rap. My sons attend this school from 2010 to 2015. As they progressed through each grade level, they were contained (mostly) to one floor of the building. This meant they passed between classes with only their grade peers. Teachers monitored halls during passing and watched behaviors. Lunchtimes between 6-7-8 were kept separate. There were Honors classes at every grade level for those who tested and qualified. The honors classes covered all four major subjects. The teachers were easy to contact, whether email, text, or some type of class messaging system.Additionally many members of the staff would serve after school time offering academic help whenever needed. They have after school study sessions for students who struggle, with a late bus picking up at four and taking kids to designated drop off points for parent pick up.There is ample chances for students to try sports. Handy offers seasons of football, basketball, soccer, track. There are cheer and Pom groups, science groups, and band of course. There are also three -times -a -year after school offerings . They are Offered and taught by staff .... students can explore other minor sports, and athletics, robotics, computers, and science fun.Most people who speak ill of HMS do not have children that have ever attend there. Is there less than ideal teachers there? A few yes, but because of the districts new rigorous evaluation protocols, they are slowly disappearing. I would HIGHLY recommend this middle school. Now that my boys are in high school, we find we really miss it there.

Honestly as a student that went there, I find it a terrible school.. I went there for 3 years as I only live two blocks away and had no choice. There were a few teachers I had in 8th grade that singled me out for no apparent reason, my mother reported it to the counciller, both principles AND spoke directly to the teachers. They said things such as 'You're not going anywhere in life." "You won't graduate high school" "Why do you even come to school" It was one of the two hours that that class had 2 teachers..all they did was bully the students off of one another. One of the teachers that was the main part of the problem had gotten fired before for dragging someone down the hallway by their hair! Yet she is still allowed to teach? And when a complaint is made about her NOTHING is done? I bet you this year she is singling out another student. She would send me in the hallway daily-not exaggerating..actually daily! And a teacher called Ms.Brady would let me come into her room instead of sitting out there. She knew what happened. This teacher is - Ms. Lewandowski, and then Ms. Eurick was the other one, who later retired for more surgery. If they read this they will know who I am.

The teachers are great, but the administration and disopline is not the best. They need to focus on real issues and take their jobs for granted. I had 3 students go through handy and have 2 still in Handy and in the time, it has changed for the worst. I do like how they have Wildcat Workshop and the exploreatory classes. Extra Actavities at Handy are great too.

Outstanding staff and students. Great expectaions for all students. Heavy focus on writing and reading. Wildcat workshop is mandated for all students everyday and 45 min. is spent on writing support. Computers, art, gym, woodshop, French, Spanish manditory for all students all year round. Serviced by 4 administrators, grade level counslors, 2 school social service workers, hall monitors, office staff and support staff. Library is new and well maintained. Three building computer labs for staff use on a daily bases. One Technology teaching team (stuents have their own lap tops) assigned to Handy. Deversified building.
