Because it has provided my children with a safe and academically inclined environment.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted September 18, 2008

I am very displeased with Headland Middle. The principal and staff all need to quit acting like the kids 'friends' because they have plenty of friends the staff is there to teach the kids to respect adults and I surely don't see that from that school. I agree with the parent who stated that the school has no structure. The staff and principal all need to reread the school board policies because I can say that I surely don't see them following it. The school board needs to go in and fire all the head staff and start over.

As a parent I would like to thank the 6th grade teachers for their time my child loves them to death and was thrilled to have them

Headland Middle School has a wonderful faculty and staff that go above and beyond to provide students with the best education possible. The principal is exactly what the school needs. He has established order and expects great things from all students. He knows every student by name and most of their parents, as well. My 3 children have been lucky enough to attend this school, and it continues to improve each year!

I was not very happy with the middle school.I do not feel that my chld got the education he needed the three years he was there. The principal is not what he needs to be and the school does not have any structure to it.The rules there are different for each student.
