Amazing school. Staff is impeccable. Parents in community connect with teachers to do the best for the students.

Their are truly no words to discribe my true appreciation for the time Mr. L'Esperance and Mr. Lewis took with me to discuss my concern of removing my daughter from a very reputable private school to possibly Teasley Middle School for next year as a 7th grader. I was truly impressed with the fact that this school would actually work with a parent and new student that has already had advanced currc. willing to be very accommadating as long as they saw what she was already doing. I cannot thank you both enough!! Bless you and your staff for taking the time to truly explain things to me!

I cannot say enough great things about Teasley Middle School. My daughter has been in three different schools and this is, by far, her best experience. The Administration cares about our kids..they matter! Teasley teachers are fabulous and have made learning fun. The support staff even take the time to get to know our kids. Teasley is always doing fun things to keep them excited about coming to school.

My daughter attended Teasley Middle School this past year as a 7th grader and she had a wonderful experience. We were extremely pleased with everything....the outstanding teachers, the caring administrators and the positive learning environment. There are also numerous opportunities for parents to participate and be involved in events throughout the year. Success in your child's academic career stems from active parental involvement and teaming together with the school to ensure that your child receives a successful environment in which to thrive. Teasley educators and administration are eager to provide this opportunity to all of their families. Looking forward to another wonderful year as we approach the last year in the present facility. Go Raiders!!

I couldn't be happier with my son's 7th grade experience at this school. The staff and administration went out of their way to make sure he had great instruction as well as a fun supportive environment. He is well prepared for 8th grade because of the effort and care the staff put into their classrooms. There are many opportunities for parents to volunteer and take part in supporting their child's education which is extremely important to a child's progression and a schools success. We are looking forward to next year.

This school is a parent's nightmare! My child hates it here and the teachers present a non-caring attitued toward the class. My child never gets told, "Way to go.", "Great job". The teachers sit at their desk on their computer, while the assistant teacher attempts to teach. If I didn't love where we live, we would be out of here!! i don't recommend this school to anyone.

This school is fantastic! The teachers really care about all of their students, and would do anything to prtect them. They have an amazing music program with some of the best musical directors in the entire county. My brother and sister went to this school and have done a great job in CHS (Cherokee High School.) The teachers have done a great job preparing my brother and sister for high school. And they did a very good job preparing me for 8th grade. So yes!! this is <b>the best school everrr</b>!!!!!!!!!!!

This school is not the best place. There were amazing teacher but they wanted to play more than they wanted to teach. I almost failed because one of my teacher's did not teach us, and another one just sat there the whole time, and the teacher and princple didnt do there best a inforcing the school rules.

We pulled our child out of here last year about 1/4 through. Too worried about 'No child left..' statistics and scores. Principal and faculty sadly lethargic.

Posted December 3, 2004

This school is over populated with not enough individual attention in most areas. The music department however is continuing to get bigger and bigger with wonderful music directors. One of the main reasons this school is over populated is because it feeds the largest surrounding area. It is not an over all bad school but it is not first rate either.
