As a parents my issues with golfstream middle school staff members need to investigate properly and ask question before students be suspending in school or out of school

It takes time for changes to be appreciated!!!! For four (4) years the former leader, Brian Kingsley, have used innovative strategies to work on school culture, build the best leadership team, brand Gulfstream, and make it a place all students want to come to. There were ups and down.... but he was able to have parents actually becoming active in the school improvement plan and getting the mayor's office and other business in the community to care and be part of the GMS family. After four years of being admired, criticized, doubted, loved, supported, followed, rejected, etc. Mr. Kingsley leaves with a promotion, BUT leaves with his promise and wish come true, GULFSTREAM MIDDLE SCHOOL is an A+ school!!!!!!!! This leaves the new appointed leader with high expectations of keeping the dynamics and only moving the school towards perfection. My one concern.... The school might be too small for the incoming class :)

I attended Gulfstream Middle School for half of 6th grade and due to the bullying aspect, I left. Mr. Kingsley is THE BEST principle I have ever seen! I was in the STEM program as well as in the GEM class. Ms. Abe was the best math teacher I could have asked for and definitely helped me with my math. I actually love math now thanks to her. Mrs. Swanson is a phenomenal technology teacher who is also NASA certified. Reading was always my best subject and got even better with Ms. Wimberly :) All of my teachers were the best a student could ask for and the only thing about this school was that bullying was a fairly large problem. The teachers can only do so much to protect the students and they have tightened up a lot since I left. I can't say enough good things about the staff and Mr. Kingsley.

This is one of the worst schools ever! If you care about the well being of your child look elsewhere. Because this school was so bad my child as well as all Hallandale elementary students whom were graduating to 6Th grade received a list of other schools that the children could attend. Worst school, ever!!

My daughter is in 7th grade. I am soooo proud of her and her teachers. Her teachers have been there for her and I since the begining of 6th grade. The teachers care and are excited for there students to succeed. The STEM program has helped my daughter reach goals, become more responsible, and succeed at taking AP classes in Middle Sch. Mr. Kingsley is preparing our kids for the FUTURE! Remember PARENTS its up to us to participate and be involved as much as we can. We cant blame the school or teachers for our children, we have to be involved. Oh do a little work research how GREAT GULFSTREAM TEACHERS are! FYI Mrs. Swanson in is the top 50 STEM Teachers in the US. I understand why. KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK GULFSTREAM MIDDLE!!!!!

Gulfstream Middle School is a school that is just realizing that it has the potential to be the best school in this county. It is run on the belief that our students have the skills to be tomorrow's leaders and we have the teachers who are ready and able to facilitate this process. We are a school focused on PROBLEM-SOLVING! Personally, I am grateful and proud to be a part of what's going on here because it has allowed me to witness students, teachers, and a community realize that we are making an IMPACT everyday and leaving a LEGACY that at one time, some thought was impossible. Anyone out there who disagrees, I invite you to come inside and witness what is going on first hand. Our doors are always open to everyone! WE ARE...GULFSTREAM!

I am an 8th grader at this school and i am proud of how far it has come. The terrific programs like STEM, sports, and other programs and the support from our principal and other staff members makes this school perfect to send your kids.

STEM Program, GEM Math, Band, Chorus, Drama club, Dance Team, Soccer, Basketball, lots of extra-curricular activities - this school is incredible! Last year they were a "B" school and it was the largest increase in points out of all the schools in the county. The principal announced that now they were just a few points away from an "A" rating, and they expect to be an "A" school this year!

Gulfstream Middle is in an an innovative zone with a brand new, dynamite principal, Brian Kingsley. He's got very dedicated & knowledgeable staff. I chaperoned a field trip with GS Middle kids at JA Cntr in CoConut Creek. They scored the highest in the history of this center and were very eager to learn and best behaved. with the new STEM program coming to this and all the other Hallandale schools, the grades and perceptions will greatly increase.

I am sad to report that since 2006, this school, has been an underachiever! Since 2006, the school has earned - - - C in 2006, D in 2007, C in 2008, C in 2009 and C in 2010! Fortunately, under the " No Child Left Behind Act" parents can transfer their child to a either an "A" or "B" school; however, it is unfortunate that children have to tranfer to other areas in other to get an education. Hallandale Elementary does an excellent job, however, I can say the same about Gulfstream Middle. It gets worst when children leave Gulfstream Middle and enter Hallandale High, another underachiever school! It's a tragedy for the children, parents, and community at Hallandale Beach.

I have worked at other schools and I would rate this school an 'A' when it comes to working with a caring staff. The principal is amazing...she really cares about her students and staff. The draw back is that it seemed like the parents were lacking in participation and some students missed alot of school. This might explain why the school is not rated as high as it should be.

I as a parent think that Gulfstream Middle School, is the worst school I have sent my daughter to. The teachers are worst then the children themselves. The atmosphere and the people around make the enviorment the way it is. And I just completly think this school is unexceptable for any student or teacher to attend..

for such a small school you would think that the teachers would take more time out for the students and spend more time on study skills

This school is good in some aspects and bad in others. As far as academics no complaints but and this is a big but it is sad that this school has been in the making since my daughter was in the 4th grade. She is now finishing 8th grade and still there is no gym or track for them to do any sports. I think its pathetic that my daughter has to be driven to the nearest school for her to be in a band. I think board of education needs to step it up and get with the program. Also i think a lot of parents need to step up and complain only then will the school make a change, because this situation is getting past ridiculous

This school is more like an all-profit company rather than a school. Most teachers are here for the $3/hour, THAT'S IT. I give this school a very low F. Many schools out there are 'A' schools, but this school fails to realize all the things those schools are doing. (Cant they look at Nautilus Middle School?) People here are lazy and obnoxious.BAM! The food is recycled, or has recycle flavor.BING! The Principal is sad in every way.BAM! This school is too poor. Why must the school board insult us like this?BONG! No one here has a life.BAM!BAM!BAM!

Gulfstream is a great school that truly cares about children. I can truly say that the adminsitration is 100 % pro child. No matter what grade the state gives this school I give it an A. Frankly, more schools should be like Gulfstream. Small and personal . I really don't know a school in this district where a principal stands at the student drop off area and greets the students on a daily basis. Here that happens. It makes a differneces. Keep up the good work!!!!

As far as academic programs I must say I have no complaints. They are doing a good job in that aspect. As for the sports being available, I think its sad that the children had to wait 2 years to get their school and still they do not have the facilities they need to play sports. This has been going on long enough and its time the school did something about it.
