Punta Gorda Middle School 4

We are new to the area but so far, PGMS has been terrific! The guidance counselors worked with us to ensure my 2 children were in the appropriate classes. Since we are from the north, the boys are ahead of the norm and were placed in advanced classes. The teachers are wonderful about keeping the students challenged and engaged. They are very open with communicating with parents and stay on top of any potential issues. The guidance dept has worked extensively with me to ensure my child's 504 has been updated and carried out, even suggesting new ideas as well. I cannot say enough good things about this school. The only "drawback" if you will, which would be present at any school, us that there are a number of rude, obnoxious kids just looking to start trouble and I think some if the teachers turn a blind eye to it, saying "kids will be kids".

To be honest, I did not like this school at all. In my opinion it's getting worse every year. The school has a nice campus, but the staff isn't the best. I was put in mostly regular classes even though at my previous school I was in all honors (not the best guidance counselors). It was frustrating because I felt like the teachers only liked the gifted students and could care less about the students that were labeled "regular/mainstream/average".

The principal is GREAT and so is the guidance staff. If I have ever had any problems or questions they have been answered quickly and effectively . The school was destroyed from Hurricane Charley but has come back stronger than ever. It is truely a future- foward school with the technology they have now. I would put my kids there all over again and would recommend it to anyone. I have been on PTO and SAC for the entire time and it is well worth it just to get to know the school, teachers, and staff. They are wonderful!

This school has so much bullying going on. The teachers don't seem to do much about it and it's getting worse. A lot of fighting and drugs as well being done in school. I am looking to take my daughter out and drive to North Port.

This middle school has an outstanding, energetic staff from the top-notch principal to the quality teachers. The new school building is state of the art.

The school is horrible. The academics are questionable and discipline is lacking. The staff do not seem to care.
