As of now, I give this school 3 stars...Candy Cooley was AMAZING, friendly, patient with my questions, as helpful, forward, open and thorough, until I was comfortable with the knowledge of the information!! I told her I'm over protective, over bearing and probably over involved, like for real, but these are my babies, and their education is very important, and I'm not afraid to voice my opinion if I feel needed...sometimes, to a fault! Looking forward to a great year!! Lord, I'm gonna need you!!

Duncanville Middle has to be THE WORST school in Tuscaloosa county!! the administrators and faculty do not care! Students are not safe and have little supervision. I am beyond disgusted! I will be taking my child out of this school. Maybe less teachers "playing" and more teachers actually TEACHING!!! Asst Principal put down another student to me. This is wrong on so many levels. These children are not given a fair shot. Not to mention the sexual harassment that goes on!!! Oh because boys will be boys... really??? that is just not right. You touch someone you get suspended! duh!!
