My school is the better of the two middle schools in this town. However my son has had more difficulty adjusting to the pressures of 7th grade and some of his teachers are not being as helpful as they could be if they tried. Check out the comment of June 4 2013 -- it is mine.

People should know that Gray Station Middle School is a decent school. I feel my children are safe, and the teachers attentive to my children's needs. Both of my children are in the Gifted Program, therefore not exposed to some of the situations I have heard other parents complain of in what they call "general pop". The parent support is improving, as is the leadership. I hope the current principal will begin to "clean house" of some of the lazy teachers that spend time on personal cell phones, surfing the web, and even sleeping during class. March on with this great administration that sends me email announcements, Infinite Campus access, and phone communications!

This school could be a great school if it had the leadership required. Until that changes, I would tell parents to get ready for a stressful three years. Communications is a real ISSUE at this school. Parents are not viewed as an important part of the process and decisions are made without parents. Again, leadship is the ROOT CAUSE of this issue.
