We are looking for parents who want to join in on a class action lawsuit against Booth-Fickett/ TUSD. Lots of parents who have had a child attend the school have had many upon many issues with the school that Booth Fickett sweeps under the rug and the District could care less about. The District lied and stated to the News they are pouring resources into the school but as a parent of children who attend that is a lie. Nothing will change at Booth Fickett K-8 magnet school our chidlrens home school until us parents come together and force a change. If you have had any issues at all please contact me. It is time for us parents to take a stand and force the changes our chidlren deserved and for the next generations to come. Even if your child no longer attends booth fickett or you had to leave the school for all the issues please contact me. Look me up on facebook. Please a Federal judge is already watching over the District it is time to let the special master from the courts know nothing has changed the problems that started the lawsuit is still alive and well and TUSD and Booth Fickett are in it for the want of a paycheck not for the care of our childrens education or safety while attending thier public home school TUSD has tried to keep everything in the dark for too long us as parents to child we love need to expose it.

If i could give zero stars i would. This school is out of control and lacking fundamental educators like resource teachers for kids with IEPS. The kids are disrespectful and are never on task when i come to my sons class. Any parent looking fpr a better school in Tucson or with TUSD good luck and dont let the term \"Magnet\" school fool you. The only thing theyre a magnet for is disorder and poor educations

Look, I have gone to this school since Kinder, this school is not horrible but its not very good. Ive seen many reviews talking about the zero tolerance for bullying but I would have to disagree with those reviews. I was however bullied and got tired of it and had my dad talk to the principal. The principal was quick to get this situation under control and put and end to it and even had my dad have a conference with the kids parents. They had the bullying stopped by the end of the day. The kid also if I remember correctly had a few days of ISS (in school suspension).Most of the teachers are wonderful and make school a lot better. Many teachers do quit like my Spanish teacher and Mrs. Luscumb. I have had a few great teachers that truly deserve better and the kids should appreciate way more, like Ms. Ishikawa or Ms. Gorski or one of my old teachers Ms. Culbertson or Mr. Ross. Sadly only 2/4 of those teachers still teach at this school. I feel that some of the kids are very rude to them and should be in trouble because of some of the things they pull. Sometimes I feel like all the staff is too easy on them. There have been a few fights between students and most of the kids involved dont even get punished, sometimes the staff just ignores it! I will say some of the staff is very concerned and keeps the school together because they care but they go unnoticed, like Mrs. Maurer, keeps the whole middle school students together. She cares so much about everyone and the school and deals with so much. We NEED more teachers like her because she makes the school way more enjoyable and under control.As a teacher maybe wondering if they really should work here I would say only do it if you want to help this school out and help these kids get an education because its kind of hard to learn when you have a different sub everyday. Some of these kids are trouble-makers but that shouldnt mean that teachers should quit on us. Many of the kids actually want to learn and get an education like they deserve.So over all the school isnt amazing but many of the teachers and kids are and they deserve better. This school may seem horrible but its really not once you look at the good in it.

I LOVE the Kindergarten teachers and their curriculum. If your kid goes to kinder here you are in for a treat and your child will learn so much!I didnt like the experience my child had in the middle school side. There are too many incidents and not enough staff to handle it and/or the teachers dont handle the problems well.I did really like everyone in the front office and I think they are very nice people but that wasnt enough for me to want to keep my child in the school.In my opinion, the campus is just very big and there isnt enough staff.
