Cal Young Middle School Ratings & Reviews

This school is truly terrible. I am currently enrolled in seventh grade at Cal Young, and every day is a nightmare. Many of the teachers don't care at all for the students. My personal favorite teachers though, are Barb MacWilliam, Scott Baker, Tom Cantwell, and Tim Bjornstad. The kids here are cruel, unintelligent, and have no ambition. The new principal I TERRIBLE. She will often walk into classes unannounced, and interrupt for 20+ minutes. Please, please, please don't send your child to Cal Young.

We've had a pretty good experience at Cal Young with the exception of one social studies teacher. (She kept insisting our son was not doing work, yet she would lose the work he would turn in. We also had to correct grades that she had put into her grading system - our son had the returned graded tests and papers as proof of his real grade when the grade entered into the system was points lower. We felt like she had it out for him or something, it was odd. We were VERY happy when that year was over!!) Anyway - aside from that experience with that one particular teacher, we have nothing negative to say about Cal Young with regards to the staff, teachers, principal, or vice principal. There are some really outstanding teachers there and Mr. Beard the VP is really caring and seemed to always be available for us when we had concerns or questions. Mr. Schiff is awesome and the principal Mrs. Vandercar is also really great. My word of advice to future Cal Young parents: just make sure your kids have a good group of friends. This made ALL the difference in our experience. Middle school is a strange time. Keep your family close and get to know your kids friends and you should be fine.

I have never been so disappointed in a public school as Cal Young. We choose Cal Young because of the high test scores and positive reviews but have experienced the very opposite (more issues than can be posted). On day one my daughters where put in the wrong class with my oldest 8th grade daughter being put in 7th grade classes. They also signed up both girls for the wrong extracurricular activities. Every other week my daughters have come home with stories of prejudice comments coming from kids at the school. I presented this information to the Vice Principal, but nothing has changed. I realize parents are ultimately responsible for their children's prejudices, however, I was shocked that this was so prevalent in Eugene and that the school doesn t do more to reduce it. Obviously the Zero Tolerance policy is more of a marketing ploy than something they take seriously. There are many more stories coming home weekly of the inadequacy of the staff at this school. At this point if my daughters hadn t made friends I would move just to get them a better education. I m told Sheldon High School is a good place for them and will stick it out because of that.

Cal Young has a great learning environment. I really enjoy going here, and it is very clean. Most teachers are great, with some exeptions. I would say it is one of the best middle schools in Eugene.

Cal young is a great LOOKING school. Although, some teachers are horrible. Good teachers include: Mr.Baker Ms.Ketche, Mr.Loy. They really need to fire some teachers though.
