Most of all the things said about congress is not true they have excellent programs and classe too I been a student at congress for two years this will be my last year and I have to say it been a good and bad years for me but for the most I have fun students can be mean but not all the time just keep your head up and ignore and don't worry about fitting in hope new students have a wonderful time here at this great school

hide your kids from this messed up school. my daughter went in 2013 for 6th grade and she was bullied, cyberbullied and harassed and she got major depression, she self harmed, and started to starve and purge. she was baker acted because of the way that those kids made her feel and act. i highly recommend not to send your kids here and the staff is awful and the principle does nothing to discipline the kids who need to be. also if you look at the news stories online if you search up congress middle school, oh god that should just knock this school out of the running for your child's middle school choices

I was a student of Congress Middle School through the years of 2011-2014 and it was great. At the beginning it was weird but ever since last year they have changed the staff around and everything is smooth and I sometimes go there and volunteer to see my old teachers and help around. Love this school, offers a lot of clubs and really talented teachers in the gifted department.

Do not substitute teach there. The principal will talk down and yell at you like you are a student. Unbelievable. Never ever treated that way at any other school. Substitutes beware!!

MY SON IS IN HIS 3RD YEAR AT CONGRESS MIDDLE SCHOOL. THE VERY FIRST DAY OF HIS 6TH GRADE YEAR, HE WAS HIT BY ANOTHER STUDENT. HE ENDED UP AT THE NURSE'S OFFICE AND BEGAN HIS DAY. HE DOES COME HOME AND HAVE SOME INTERESTING STORY'S ABOUT HIS DAY IN SCHOOL. HE IS A STRAIGHT (A) STUDENT, HE HAS HAD A LOT OF GREAT TEACHERS, AND 1 OR 2 NOT SO GREAT. HIS TEACHERS POST EVERYTHING ON ED-LINE, AND HAVE ALWAYS ANSWERED ME EMAILS. THE MIDDLE SCHOOL YEARS ARE TOUGH ! THEY ARE NOW TEENAGERS, SOME DO WELL IN THESE CHANGING TIMES, AND THERE'S OTHERS THAT THINK THEIR GANSTERS. SOME ARE GANSTERS, THE PRINCIPAL THEY HAVE NOW MS. O'CONNER SEEMS TO REALLY CARE ABOUT HER STAFF AND STUDENTS. I THINK THE SCHOOL WAS A VERY BAD SCHOOL YEARS AGO, BUT TIMES ARE CHANGING. WITH THE CHOICE PROGRAMS, AND NEW OFFICE STAFF. THEY APPEAR TO HAVE THEIR ACT TOGETHER. BUT IN ALL SCHOOLS, THERE ARE ALWAYS THOSE FEW BAD APPLES, BE THEM TEACHERS OR STUDENTS. I BELIEVE MY SON HAS GOTTEN A GREAT EDUCATION FORM CONGRESS MIDDLE SCHOOL, MY YOUNGEST SON WILL ATTEND CONGRESS MIDDLE SCHOOL NEXT YEAR. I HOPE HE GETS SOME GOOD TEACHERS WHO CARE. ALSO A GOOD GROUP OF NEW FRIENDS, THERE ARE NO GUARANTEE'S....BUT IS IS A G "GREATSCHOL

MY CHILD DOES NOT LIKE THIS SCHOOL, POSSIBLY WILL BE CHANGING SCHOOLS ASAP, OR HOME SCHOOLING FOR FLORIDA ONLINE, MOST OF THE KIDS HERE DONT HAVE HOME TRAINING , NO MANNERS, OR RESPECT FOR OTHERS. BULLYING AND CUSSING IS CONSTANT. TEACHERS NOT THAT MUCH DIFFERENT AS I HAVE SEEN AND HEARD FOR MYSELF. NO WONDER SO MANY PARENTS GET UPSET
