Even though the administration is a horrible joke, the rest of the school is very passionate( but not the lunches). Teachers and Mr. Stokes who Is the best admin at the school, help you with a big ol smile on their face, no matter what the issue is. And the music department is like gold and diamonds. It's awesome. I'm a Clarinet player in 8-1 band and the teachers are ready to teach.

I am a first time middle school parent and have a 6th grader at Pine Mountain. We love it! The administration is wonderful - Principal Jackson is terrific! We have had great teachers so far - my child is being challenged and really enjoys his classes. The school is well run, clean and organized. I also volunteer at the school, and the vast majority of the kids are respectful and well behaved. It is too bad that some of the people writing reviews on this site do not really have first hand knowledge of the school. That can make good schools suffer due to carelessness.

All 4 of my children attended Pine Mountain over the past 9 years. We were in a local private school and after the first month at PMMS my oldest said, "I have learned more here than I ever did at , (his previous private school). The administration led by Mrs Jackson, Mr Stokes and Ms Faucett is superb! They truly care about the children and about the staff. All of my children's teachers have challenged them, encouraged them and treated them with respect. My children all thrived there and I recommend this school to anyone looking to put their child in a safe, educationally sound, strong leadership school.

I'm kind of scared to see how KMHS will be in the future due to the kids from Pine Mountain. (Im a sophomore at KMHS) . Ive heard alot of bad things from people i know about the kids in PMMS. They spit water on eachother, they push eachother around in the all screaming "YEET", They took away their locker breaks because of how bad they are, (Talking about the 2013 8th graders aka Rising Freshmen this year) And when i was there as an 8th grader 2 years ago, The teachers were horrible, my class was bad. (Not anymore) The 7th and 6th graders were horrible. This school is just terrible and staff does nothing about it and teachers have no control over classrooms.

The teachers were very supportive and tried hard to help students improve. There were numerous extracurricular activities and the school lunch was good.

For the most part, good teachers, good school. Administration gets 1 star--too political and condenscending--especially with the addition of the new woman Asst principle--very prickly, no personality, never smiles. Teachers get 4 stars, with the exception of Ms. C, 7th grade SS,--psycho.

It's funny to see disgruntled parents whining about their darling kids being "picked" on...parents who can't even use proper grammar or spell correctly. Anyway, great school and great teachers. Very happy that my child is there.

I went to PMMS all 3 three years and I had a wonderful time. Like mentioned, some of the teachers are racist, and yes, they will pick on your child for no reason at all sometimes (Watch out for their mood swings). They need to improve their cafeteria management because eveyone occasionally finds something unique in their food. But overall, it's a nice school with a nice band program and most of the staff is ver helpful and polite.

This school is the best one that i have ever gone 2! the teachers are fun, caring, and believe that we are the future of this country so they help us go above and beyond!! mrs. Gannon and mrs irwin, ur both my inspiration! dr. Redmond, the principal, takes alot of concern on the eighth graders and there are alot of clubs and activities! sure the class rooms arent big but they have added a new wing 4 orchestra(which is awesome!), band, chorus,reading, mentally ill children, and amazing bathrooms! all of the teachers try and make u do ur best at evrything. So i believe this school is fabulous 4 many more reasons!

The administration is weak at handling student disagreements. They also apply double standards in conflict resolution and the principal seems to be very in-effective. Most of the teachers are good but I have a big problem with the don't care attitude of the administration.

Woe to the child who doesn't have the scores to make it in the target program. High achieving students can make 100 averages in all their classes, but the administration refuses to allow them to be challenged in the target program because of test scores on standardized tests. I know of children in neighboring middle schools where the administrators and teachers have set aside classes for those high acheivers who are not being challenged enough in the 'regular' classes. Not at Pine Mountain. I have asked to arrange field trips only to be told that if everyone cannot attend from the whole grade at the same time, the trip cannot happen... and yet the target program is taking a three day field trip while the regular classes are put on hold for them to return. There is no incentive for most of the children to apply themselves and work hard.
