Unfortunately it is easy to be fooled by the test scores and the beautiful new building. The Middle School while beautiful on the outside is an empty shell academically. It lacks the leadership, structure and vision to adequately administer a curriculum that one would demand from an educational institution. Students leave the middle school barely equipped to succeed at the high school which furthers the disappointment for the next 4 years leaving graduates unprepared for the challenges of higher education. If you want your child to play Football and then work at a chicken plant, this school district is for you. If you value academic opportunity for your child seek out private school or consider residing in Huntsville.
