Student: Myers middle school is a great school, I had above average test scores and great grades! I think people discriminate on how many people pass at Myers but, the truth is that the teachers are doing a great job, it's some students that don't want to work hard! Myers has many great after school programs and athletics to increase better grades and better behavior, if you don't know what I mean by better grades and behavior, it means that the students that want to participate in after school activities have to have good grades or an "s-e" in conduct grades or they can't participate. Overall myers is a great school; I should know; and you should definetly consider sending your kid there!!

Posted August 15, 2005

Today was the first day of the second year for my daughter in this school. It has been for us a horrifing experience, though most of the public schools in this county are bad. I was told to F---- off today twice before even entering the school. My daughter was threatened with alot of violence last year where I had to be contacted by the police. She had a teacher that was telling the girls that they were fat, ugly, had bad hair and that he was going to teach them how to be true black, my daughter is not black. They are below standards for math, reading, social studies in my opion they have learned nothing about history, other than who Martin Luther King Jr is.
