I love the STEM program this year it is what we need here! The kids enjoy this school. It is just a shame that programs are cut by the district and instead of a gym they put up solar panels. Way to show the kids you care district! Great school though !

I dont think that the enviornment of Endevour Middle School was an enviorment that was unsafe for my child . The facilty was basically a camp site but the Dutiers were very helpful to my child.

I like the academic program at Enedevour. I like the Principal and the rules. I love that they wear a uniform, and make sure that the students come to school ready to learn and dressed for the part. I think Endevour has a great program and I feel my children have grown a lot. I would have liked to have had the new school finished by the time my son graduated, and would have liked to have had more electives, but overall it has been a great experience.
