    "My 12 year old son goes to 7 th grade at Rancho Middle School. As pampered parents of one of the best elementary schools in town and until the commencement of the school this year, we were a bundle of nerves. But I must admit that the experience with this middle school has been nothing but a pleasure. The teachers, counselor and the principal have been very helpful and encouraging and very engaging. Here, I would like to mention one particular name amongst all the wonderful teachers, the Humanities teacher, Mrs. Zoe Schellenberg. She has been very hands on with the students and extremely meticulous. I was very impressed as to how she knew every child personally and took interest in their overall development. I feel really fortunate to have my son be part of this great school."

    "My time at Rancho was challenging, however by the end of eighth grade I was completely prepared for UNI. Just like most schools, some teachers are disorganized and frantic, while others are calm and have a plan of what they are going to teach a month in advance. I did not participate in the GATE program in 7th grade, however I was placed into the GATE program in 8th grade and I did extremely well (I had Mrs. Mckay <3). There are few kids who get picked on, but students are encouraged to befriend others and stop bullies from hurting. I've made so many new friends at Rancho, and I absolutely loved it. (The Principle and quite a few 7th grade teachers moved to another middle school this year so the school has had many changes, but my younger brother is currently in 8th grade and he still likes the school even with all of the new changes.)"

    "Socially I wouldn't recommend this school for black children. Racial slurs are a regular thing here. For two years my child was teased about not being black enough and called many names. Also one of teacher's here disclosed my child's grades to the entire class. Because of this teacher's action my child was teased. I'm beyond saddened by these events. All children deserve to have a safe environment to learn. Also there needs to be more supervision as the kids do fight at this school."

    "My son loves this school. All my worries or concerns went by the waste side after the first month. The administration at this school is great. I can't say enough good things about Rancho!"

    "Our experience has been mixed. Some great teachers and some very poor teachers. Academics would be better if some of the teachers spent more time on organization and communication. Strong P.E. and fitness program (if you care)."
