I have always had positive experiences with Carl Sandburg Middle School. My children have gone through there and now my grandkids are there. They have always had great teachers and really enjoyed the whole school in general.

This school is not organized, the teachers seem to not care about their students but only putting in a days work and leaving it at that. It seems that there is little to no effort put into thes children which are our future of this community. There is a lack of caring how the students end up.

Worst school in Freeport? On its worst day, Carl Sandburg is better than FJHS on its best. Great teachers, outstanding administration and a positive, supportive discipline structure aren't enough to overcome the myriad problems of the students whom District 145 serves, but I challenge anyone else to do better. The interweaving of discipline with counseling and social work, intended to help students make better choices day to day, is a model that other schools should follow. My guess is that the lack of windows was a tornado safety feature. But it does make the interior classrooms pretty awful to be in. In a couple of years, both Sandburg and FJHS will become 5-8 middle schools serving their respective parts of town. I'll bet that the cultures of the two schools will remain exactly the same, and that Sandburg will unavoidably become the 'good middle school' and FJHS the 'bad middle school.'

This is the worst school in Freeport. All of the K-4 elementary schools funnel into Carl Sandburg for 5th and 6th grade making it too crowded. There is also an architectural feature that makes the school horrible, half of the class rooms have no windows. The rooms are in 'pods' of four with the two class rooms getting windows and two going without windows.
