I went to Floyd middle school from my 6-8 grade years and it was just OK. The students tend to be kind of wild and get on teacher's nerves. The food is also not so great either. BUT there are some great after school activities ( Art club for 8 graders is beast!) This school could improve by learning how to cook cafeteria food to the right temperature. Overall an average school.

I attended Floyd Middle School from 6-8th grade. My education was terrible. At first, I was placed in NO accelerated classes. All general ed. classes are dumbed down and extremely boring. The accelerated classes are what I envision as a regular class should be. There are NO academic extracurricular activities. For example, Floyd NEVER participated in Science or Math olympiads, and floyd does not have any academic clubs. Also, most (If not all) programs at floyd are about behavior, not about academics. Behavior and bad teachers will really get in your way at Floyd. The social studies teachers (in my time) have been great up to 8th grade. 8th grade social studies was terrible. We are still learning THE DAY BEFORE THE CRCT! I do NOT recommend floyd if you have a choice.

Floyd Middle School... I attended Floyd. I had a great experience there...with a lot of great memories I often wish I could relive. Like any other school there are pros and cons, but overall Floyd is a great school. I had amazing teachers that were passionate about what they do, and teachers that weren't. It's obvious that the administration is working hard to keep this school going in the right direction. I had a great experience at Floyd, I just wish I would have been happier with myself while I was there.... I wish I didn't care so much about what others thought about me, then maybe I would have been able to enjoy myself even more.

Part 2 of prev. post I was then connected with someone helping to pick up the mess.She seemed empathetic to my concerns; geniuinely felt my pain.My son has always been A or A/B student.Now we were looking at a F. As other assignments were added it went to a C.This final assignment we found had been turned in wks prior.Witnesses saw him! It was returned to him next day.I hand delivered original to principal who gave it to this person doing the grades.I commend her effort to fix it,but she insisited he never handed it in.She explained the original teacher's marking system was always consistent.One answer in purple ink,so she concluded it would have been marked incomplete IF handed in.I asked him (should have been done at school that day),he said a friend grabbed his work in class & wrote one answer in purple.The paper was in the folder the whole time completed,handed in weeks earlier but now it's documented a Z.based on assumption he never turned it in.He ended up with a 79.ONE point from a B!They insist our kids ask for help,be accountable.He did so. Problem: Not 1 teacher asked him or was accountable.Noone acknowledged misplaced work.In the chaos,sadly, kids were graded unfairly.

If you have a student that is an IEP student, and the child have emtional behavior problems please watch out. They will have that child a bad record. They don't talk to you till the child is really out of control. So watch floyd middle for disability kids.

Before I went to Floyd me and my family thought it was a bad school. Only beacause they were hearing it from people at work. I was originally supposed to go to Campbell middle school except I wanted to try Floyd out first. Basically the only thing I didn't like about Floyd was uniforms and it's like the principal thought that would change the behavior of the kids at school. Well she didn't do a very good job of that but watever. But every single is not perfect and I'd that we're true we would all be very very smart. But if you are zoned to go Floyd and you want a good, decent quality education and a discipline check then Floyd is a great choice! I have attended Floyd for three whole years and received a quality education in academics and music. I am proud to always and forever be a Floyd panther

This school includes a vast array of many excellent teachers and other members of the faculty. However, most of the school's downfall is due to the students, many of which do not even fully attend a fourth of the year.

Floyd Middle School is rising from the ashes of failure. But there are some weak spots. On Fridays Floyd is very confusing w. them staying in homeroom for a whole 30 mins. Which I say is very disruptive they should just have a day in one of the classes to do it instead of that. With the cafeteria food is okay but they really should get better food or a variety. Maybe hot wings, Something that the children will love. Teachers, need to be more disciplined, but the administrators are very nice && welcoming. With the issue of stuff going missing is a big problem. Somebody stole my daughters Iphone right out of her purse. & they dont have camera so they couldnt find who did it. They should have more clubs, && less running around asking for money stuff. Also they have to save money, so they do awards ceremonies in the middle of a work days. && my daughter said she dosent get a snack if the parent isn't there. What in the world does that make since. So I would say be careful at a school called Floyd, because they are just rising from the ashes of disgusting failure,

I am in the 7th grade at Floyd and I hate it. On my progress report I had a F in math because my teacher forgot to put grades in the computer. Same with my social studies teacher where I had a D.

The school's principal managed to have instituted this year a standard uniform dress code without an opt-out provision. Courts have repeatedly ruled such dress codes in public schools amount to suppression of free speech, so violate the US Constitution. Thus the administrators show a disregard for constitutional civil liberties that students will adopt and learn to not question. Floyd's new dress code dresses up the school's messy system of student discipline problems that administrators expect so they help sustain it. Parents and others can now expect an even more messy system of student discipline problems to come with violations of dress code. After all, children are thinking, feeling, creative human beings, too.

Every middle school in the area seems to have their share of problems. Positives about Floyd are that there are some strong administrators, as well as some teachers who care, and do their best despite many discipline problems. There is a new uniform dress code this year,also. Administrators really have their hands full, with the disciple issues. PTA is very active. Floyd's population is very ethnically diverse. There is also a vast diversity in income levels, and parent involvement. If you are expecting high academic achievements, you may want to consider one of the private schools in the area.

There are some excellent teachers. Lots of problems with attendance. Too many activities. Principal is nice enough to call every week to keep connected. I have not seen any Principal doing that, it is a plus, which tells me he is working hard to improve the school issues.

The quality of instruction and achievement declined greatly. Nevertheless, the level of commitment of few teachers is remarkable.

Hello, I have just enrolled to this school and when you walk in everything is so nice. Once you look in the classrooms there are alot of different races and cultures. They were also being quiet and paying attention.

For the last 6 years my daughter has been in target classes. This year the school has lost all their target teachers and can no longer offer these classes for children that are learning at a faster pace. This is the first year we have had trouble getting her to attend school. She hates going to school because most of her classes are a repeat of what she learned last year. This school needs a major overhall. I have had two other daughters attend this school and they didn't have near the trouble as we are having now.

I went to this school, and within one year I left and went to a private school. Floyd Middle 'School' is not a place that you would want to choose to send your kid(s) to. Most kids do not get along with one another, there is racial problems/violence due to diversity, and the school is located in a place where there is too much traffic, so picking up your kids in the afternoon would be a nightmare!

School places too much emphasis on non-educational issues. School leadership is weak and doesn't work well with parents. I can't wait for my child to be well past this attempt and education. Without out side education I doubt the last three years would have been worth his time. This school is a good example of why parents should send their children to private school.

1.Too much emphasis using the internet for study. I don't mind keeping them current with technolgy but books are the best method for learning. 2.Tries to make the school look better with more non-critical classes which causes too little emphasis on critical math and english classes. Students would literally be better off taking all other classes pass/fail. Colleges determined long ago math and english are the only critical classes which is why they are the only subjects tested via the SAT. Do well here means you can do well overall. This would apply to non-college bound students as well. More is not necessarily better. Granted, this is really more of a problem with the state and/or county system rather than this individual school. Fortunately, I have a high ranking student that does well despite the system and with some help from me.
