Reading the one star ratings makes me realize how truly awesome this school really is for my child. My child read them and asked me why there are only a few one star ratings and so many five star ratings. I asked her what she though and she had this to say, 'From reading the one star comments it seems like they were either students who were not involved, or a parent who wants their child to have a statue of them on school grounds for being in honors.'

Serrano Intermediate has been a very positive experience for my son thus far. He will be in 8th grade this year and looks forward to high school.

As a prospective educator, I observed English and History classes at Serrano Intermediate School and was amazed at the quality of education. Courses were taught in an engaging way for students, with one teacher providing the class with advanced technology, another with interactive group activities, and the last with a well-known song spoof of the Declaration of Independence. English as a Second Language is taught by a very competent and published educator. I would rate this school very highly.

My son attended this school and my daughter is currently in 7th grade. Phenomenal teaching staff, very professionla and caring towards the students. The concetrp of no child is left behind really applies to this shcool and how the teachers treat the students. The music and drama programs are fantastic!!! The office staff is also very friendly.

If you want to learn about music this is the place to go. The band director rarely has to punish students because he makes the class entertaining. Even though I have to say the teachers can have a lot of favoritism, I enjoyed it there.

This middle school is excellent. My son sent there 6 years ago and my daughter goes there right now. The teachers are great and they are very good at working with and identifying talented students and encouraging them and pushing them. New gym and other facilities are also a plus.

I hated this school. The teacher's were mean and they didn't treat the kids good. The rules were pathetic and lame. The kid's were really nice though and I miss the good times with my friends.

My only complaint about Serrano is the large gap between Honors courses and Regular courses. The regular courses are so diluted and basic and the teacher's expectations are quite low. But the Honors are almost too much the opposite.

I find this school, the teachers and the principal to be amazing. They are very involved in the success of every child. I receive emails from the teachers notifying me of upcoming tests - one even sent us a study guide to help our child study for a final! The new principal is amazing.

I find that this school is largely impersonal, and get the feeling of being a cow, only to be 'herded' through this school without having gotten to know the principle and vice principles. Though most of the teachers were enthusiactic even in events that lacked sense.

Though into lesson plans, teachrs and faculty at this school lack personability and often only get to know (befriend) students who get in trouble, often failing to recognize students in honors programs or who are high achievers

I think the quality of the academic programs is very good. The teachers all all very involved in new projects and highly motivated. There are many extracurricular activities offered in all areas of music, art and sports. Parent involvement is moderate. The new principal is wonderful.
