Gauger-Cobbs Middle School 5

I am going into 8th grade at Gauger. This school is filled with kind, smart, and dedicated teachers. People are wrong about Gauger. Sure, there are bullies, but which school doesn't? Gauger is very proficient and a great place to learn.

The amount of homework given at this school is fair. Some nights may have a bit too much homework, but most have the right amount.

Most teachers push students to do their best at school, but some of them let the students fail without any pushing them to succeed.

Some kids do not respect the school, the others in it or the value of learning. But the most who understand develop respect towards the importance of learning and others.

This school demonstrates discipline fairly and so it teaches most students to do the right thing instead of lie and teaches to understand what the consequences will be.

I went to this school for 2 years, they have these thin walls you can hear everything that other classes are saying and they don't really help you what so ever with educational help or to understand something . The rugs are taped together. There were so many fights every day. Teachers are rude. Kids distract classes so you CAN'T focas on what they're teaching. This school is incredibly boring.

I love this school, most teachers are nice and really care. They make learning interesting. My favorite teacher ever was Mrs.Gilpin. (6th grade social studies). Theres only a few problems. 1- the carpets. they are so old and are ductaped together in some places. 2- The walls and ceilings. The walls arent very stable, because when the school was built there were no inside walls and they were added later. The ceilings leak when it rains. And lastly, the busses. They are WAY overcrouded, late ALL the time, and atleast one bus breaks down every month. But I'd say for the most part at Gauger, the good outweighs the bad. With everything I said about the problems there, it might seem like a not-so-good school. But really, its a pretty good school. . dont think Gauger is a bad school because of what I said. There is no perfect public middle school. Gauger is about as close as it gets. (: I love this school. They do so much to prevent bullying, so much. And almost always, it works. But, like I said, nothings perfect. Theres nothing more they could do to prevent bullying. The education is really good too (: Right now i'm doing 7th grade work in 6 grade. (: Ok, im out of room now. Byeee :) :)
