The teachers at Logan Middle School are wonderful. I have a child in the 7th grade special education program. He has received a great education, thanks to the great teachers on the 7th grade team! Mr. Allen and the rest of the Logan staff are truly educational leaders who have the needs of the students first. My son had a rough start in 6th grade, but it has been a pleasure to send him off each and every day of this school year... Thank You, Kim

Logan Middle School is led by one of the area's finest principals. Sharrie Phillips truly believes in kids and is willing to go the distance for them. The staff at Logan is highly competent, and the students are impeccable. This is a wonderful learning enviornment for students who want to learn. Go Logan!
