Sugg Middle School is great! For all types of students! Our staff is always welcome to have new faces as well as new students to be in our school.

I have mixed emotions about this place. As my eighth grade year comes to a close, I don't really know how to describe the past three. First off I will go ahead and say that the quality of the students has greatly diminished over the course of three years. Many, MANY kids are very immature here and I've seen many fights, on campus arrests, and vicious people who barely know me and completely cuss me out in the hallway if I so much as bump into them. This school has given me many wonderous academic oppertunities though, and is preparing me for high school where hopefully the kids will be a bit more mature. The reward events like dances are a drag, though, and there seems to be more and more "street talk" here everyday, as there is graffiti on the bathroom wall. This school does have TSA, and I love it and have won a first place trophy in only my first year! I pray that kids who come here after me will see an improvement in student maturity quality. The teachers and staff are excellent and are probably just as tired of the day by day immaturity that goes on as I am. This school was a mixed experience for me. Great teachers and academics, HORRIBLE 80 percent of the student "gangstas"

I went to sugg for only a few weeks. The kids there are not very nice at all very few electives, and the fact that the cafeteria doesnt serve many healthy foods. But, it is good the way they use technology. Everyone gets a Mac computer and uses it in most of their classes. The thing is, if there were nicer kids and less violence, I think it would be a wonderful school.

This is the greatest school of all time. Why give it a 5/10, greatschools.org? There aren't many electives, but the teachers are great and will prepare you for the future. This school is definitely worth attending. I finished all three middle school levels here. I finished my middle school life with straight As and two awards (History and Presidential). Don't trash this school. A great counselor, Mr. Baietto, is the best person over there. Never trash Sugg!

My daughter was at sugg for 6th grade and I feel it is a good school for academics but there is not much to offer kids in extracurricular activities. No art, drama, broadcasting, cheerleading, graphic arts etc. My daughters love for school deminished while attending Sugg Middle school. She is attending a different school for 7th grade

I have mixed reviews and concerns about the quality of education my son is receiving in some classes and lack of understanding how an Asperger's Child learns. I am concerned that his 2nd revised IEP is still not meeting his needs. He excells in many subjects, but has difficulty staying on task. He often feels very overwhelmed and anxious. Sometimes he feels unsafe because AS kids often say things out of context. He feels like he is a failure when he comes home. We have another IEP meeting with the new ESE Director. I have been advocating for him and want him to be in a place where he can develop appropriate social skills and let everyone see what a great kid he is. I am considering another school.
