My daughter loves this school teachers and staff are very concerned about the students. No bulling will be tolerated at the school.

I strongly disagree with the first review. Councill Middle School is a great learning facility. First of all, it is important to make an appointment to visit the classrooms due to assemblies and the original teacher may not be present at the time. Second of all, a student will not be written up for petty reasons such as those. This is coming from an experienced student. The prinicpal is terrific and they know exactly how to keep a school in order. I know I didn't feel like a prisoner.

Council Middle School has started well for my son's first year in middle school.The school's principal works hard to teach rules, guidelines, and respect to all individuals.Along with providing educational needs, the school staff does not show anyinvolvement with unfairness.Regardless of last names and the amount of money you have in the community, this is actually the first school i have ever seen with these known characteristics!! Job well done.

The school year has started out very horrific for myself and my child. The first week of school I was turned away from visiting the classrooms unless I made an appointment to come in. Principal runs the school like a prison. Students are being sent to ISS for stupid reasons like giving your classmate a high five or even speaking to the opposite sex. The teachers have such a bad attitude along with the principal. something has to be done about the behavior of this school. Middle school is already a stressful time for parents and students,but this school doesn't seem to care.
