My daughter transferred over from the Fullerton District, Laguna Road Elementary, where she spent 1st to 6th grade. I can say I appreciate the activities offered by Imperial Middle School as well as the diversity of enrollment. These are two major issues from my standpoint. Being excluded because you aren't Korean doesn't help a child learn acceptance or help them later in life. What I don't see is the same level of participation from parents here.

My son is currently a 7th grader at IMS and I went there as well, many, many moons ago. I will say we have had no issues with the teachers or office staff and the Principal is wonderful! She has personally reached out to my son when we needed her. I would recommend IMS as they have lots of clubs to help prep our students for college and the future. My son continues to thrive.

I've lived in La Habra California for 13 years. I went to Imperial Middle school for 2 years my 6th and 7th grade year. I then moved near Bakersfield California. From my experiences I have loved this school! They gave me options to do different variety of activities during and after school. They made us feel like we were accepted. My other school was the exact opposite of Imperial and I felt more depressed and lonely. I really do appreciate all that they do for the kids and it's such a great school with wonderful weather that I miss and love!

I have been a student of Imperial Middle School for two years now and it is great. It has so many great teachers and programs that have helped me including AVID,pentathlon, and homework club. Imperial is the bet school I have ever been to.

im a student at imperial and i think the school is amazing. supportive teachers, awesome clubs and programs. although the office is somewhat slow and sometimes unhelpful, but overall they're great. but there's always a choice; you can chose to succeed and excell, or you can fool around and get in trouble. your choice. but think that the school is outstanding, even with cuttings of our staff and extra cirriculars.

I'm already in high school, but when I attended IMS, the teachers and classes I had, prepared me for high school, but in an exiting way! They have a lot of cool clubs and activities for everyone. Great environment, and no one is left behind.(unless they choose too)

I love this school. This is my frist year and I love it so far. Once in a while there is a fight. (little) The teachers are the best. the always put the student first. Sure, there's always that badkid in each classroom but that's not ims's falt. The after school clubs are very fun. Recreation, is most of the students favorites. You stay in rec. to just hang out play ball or run with the running team. (rarley unles your in the club) Overal it is the funnest school i had especially with the dames and the speical fridays when they have games.

My son has been at this school for 3 yrs now..I do not like the school. I now have a second child at the school and so far this school year they have had very little homework. They both seem to be behind and bored with the school work and the activity. I think the school officials should challenge the students more.

Near the end of the year a lot was being pushed, last minute things we would need to know. I suppose it is better that we got it than them blowing it off though. I did enjoy all three years and had the best teachers there. They did their best and made sure I got the help I needed. They pushed me to pass all my classes and believed that I could do it even when I didn't. Thanks to everyone there! Miss ya

The school really encourages getting good test scores, but I sometimes feel like we aren't prepared enough. There is a problem with bullies.

I used to be a student at Imperial Middle School and I would have to say they have the best teachers ever! They help you improve your grades but most important of all they help you as many times you need to get the concept of whatever they are teaching you, very patient. I love them! Especially Mrs. Zavala, Mrs. Allers, and Ms. Slaughter! Love youo all Mwazz

I don't think they keep up to academic standards well. Its often last minute they are pushing us with all the knowledge we should have learned throughout the year. By the end of the year I barely knew anymore then I did the year before. I think the students should be free to express themselves even through clothing. I don't think the school, the students, or the staff is supported well. I also don't like the lunch area. Its not well kept.

I think there is in a academic program at Imerial. It is called pentathlon. I love the teacher of pentathlon because he gets along with children well. I also think that parents aren't supporting their children enough. I don't like the way the gentlemen dress at school.

I just love this middle school. I always tip my hat to a school that cares about the students education. My son is at this school. This is his second year and it was hard at first but my son is excelling in all his class thanks to the teachers caring and taking the time to teach and having the patience with each child,as a one on one if needed. I also like the buddy system, go imperial middle school. Great job.

Both of my daughters went to this school. They had the best experience of their whole school careers here. All of the teachers care about all of the students. The population is broken into 'houses' so the same teachers rotate the same children, working closely to allign curriculum and no one gets lots in the cracks. The leadership and team spirit of the staff makethe middle school years fun for the students while they learn. Although my daughters are in high school now, they still miss the family feel of Imperial Middle school. It is the best!
