I am somewhat disappointed in this school. The teachers do not treat students as they would like to be treated or how they would like their children treated. I do believe they need continuing education on treating students (our future) with respect. thank you

This school was decent. I graduated from here last year as an honors student with A's every year. The 7th grade teachers were excellent. They made the transition from grade school to middle school very smooth. The 8th grade teachers were atrocious. Very little concern for students and often played favorites. It seemed like they were not trying to make a connection with the students at all. The principal I had was amazing. He would say hello to me every day in school, and it seemed like he really loved what he did. The sports were fun, but some of the coaches were a little nuts. Also, in 7th grade I had an art class where I was bullied all year. The teacher had no clue and was completely oblivious to what was going on. Very poor job. Overall, a pretty good school, but improvements could be made.

Not a bad school, but not a great one either. Teachers seem unconcerned overall about their students, and the kids are mean.
