South Sumter Middle School5

My daughter attended this school, I was very pleased with staff and available resources. Middle school was a huge concern, due to horror stories of other parents, and news stories. I had no issuses and believe this school has helped and readied my child for high school. She was able to accure part of her high school credit through programs offered.
I know my child did not like this school and I know many others that wound up moving their child to Citrus County. They told me plain out at the office one day that they have a lot of transient students due to the fact that the school is near the Webster Flea Mkt. My child made it through this school, but absolutely hated every minute. I should have listened to him. I thought that the South Sumter High School in Bushnell would be better because it is not near the Flea Mkt., but they only cater at the high school to the children that have been born and raised in the surrounding area. They treat them still as if they are transient students even at the South Sumter High School. I'm guessing that all the good reviews that you see by (parents) on these (2) schools are teachers.
I am a student at this horrible place and they give No effort what so ever to help the student (as in Bullying , grades, tutors,etc) and when i was being bullied they couldn't help cause i didn't know the names of the kids.
They cover all county statures, no matter how annoying the offenses may be. The learning enviroment in nice and although some students don't even try, others find the work difficult (occasionaly) and can find it challenging to get an A. The teachers can have 'teacher's pets' but they also get treated like the other students. This school is perfect, like said below, the school doesn't have the highest quality tools etc. but even the football team remains undeafeted!
