recommended for students that can handle this environment
this school was mid.
tried out for sports and over 100 other kids wanted to try out for the same sport, only 10 students got in and there was only one team. it’s pretty unfair knowing that yr 7s and 8s want to try out sports for highschool and they cant be given the opportunity to. you could try recreational sports if you tried finding some space but that will be hard because almost 80% of the time the field and courts will be full of people.
i personally didnt get bullied but i know many people who did. it’s super easy to get bullied in this school simply because of what you said, did, or even just how you look. especially online, there are many remuera intermidiate group chats online and they act very differently then in person. i have been called racial slurs and homophobic slurs but if u get called that as well, tell someone. please tell someone, you may think teachers dont care but i had a great teacher and she took my matter seriously, somewhat.
teachers are ok, some are nice and some are not. as long as you can get along with them it’s ok. they entertain as well as teach but some can be complete jerks.
didnt learn much, in fact my grades went down since primary school and now that im going to highschool unprepared it’s going to be hard. my advice is if you want to do good in school, find friends that will let you do that instead of getting in the way of your learning. and yes, there will be annoying classmates and students that will bother you but just tell them to shut up.
theres a tuck shop at our school which ive only ordered from once or twice, the food isnt that good but its pretty overpriced. although theres a good variety of food. just bring your own lunch if you can.
uniform is expensive brand new or second hand but i dont expect anything more or less. staff were ok, students can be dangerous (especially bringing weapons to school).
im about to finish my year at this school, i cant say that im happy or unhappy about it. i enjoyed my time with some of my classmates that i got along with and this school is basically like any other intermediate school. i recommend you go to this school if you are mentally and emotionally well.
the teachers were really biased and it was clear some of them had been there far too long, always yelling for no reason and blaming students for things they had nothing to do with. the people there were horrible, always being annoying and never shutting up. on the rare occasion that they do shut up, it's when the teacher is screaming so you honestly can't win.
the activities are good, you get lots of opportunities but that's it.
even the head students admitted that it was tiring and the teachers were demanding and selfish so if that doesn't say enough, you're delusional.
the mental health situation is tragic, the counsellor does not care one bit about you or what you're dealing with. instead, it's decided from the start that your parents know best about you and how you feel. you literally have no say in your feelings. it's always that the parents are right.
not being overdramatic, just honest and if you're offended then that's not my problem.
It's a amazing school, love the education given and how much support the teachers give to the students.
My daughter loves this school with all the activities and opportunity's available.
My daughter was very nervous starting a new school but got welcomed generally well.
I would have rated this a 5 star review but unfortunately the students were not as kind as other school (I'm not saying all of the students) but my child had been told she would never been successful and got bullied into doing other peoples work.
That was not ok. But it built her stronger, so I actually have to thank you. As well as that some teachers were encouraging relationships, and I don't want my child to have a boy friend at the age of 12! But every school has pros and cons, and the environment is very good so Over all this school is a great school.
