I work for Enterprise Middle School and I can honestly say that 'No Child is Left Behind.'


Posted March 28, 2008

I graduated from Enterprise. I got a great education. The teachers where great! It was by far one of the best schools in the district. Don't judge a book by it's cover! Go Eagles!


Posted December 23, 2007

The principal is a tyrant. He bullies the students and staff. The staff has no freedom to teach and no leadership to give the guidance and direction. The principal refuses to motivate and educate his staff. The school is unsafe

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

The test results by subgroup show how the designated group of students is performing in comparison to the general population.

The API reflects year-over-year schools performance based on STAR test score results from spring 2013.

The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
