Pretty good school. Teachers are willing to give individual help. They explain things in a way I can understand. School activities are a lot of fun. My only complaint is the school food could be better...

Conway Springs Middle School has excellent teachers, coaches, and administration. The teachers are all caring and try to help the students reach their potential and they also try to teach the students responsibilty. The teachers are all firm in their discipline but are fair in the administration of the discipline. The teachers try many different teaching techniques to meet each students needs. The coaches teach the students not only the fundamentals of the sports but they teach the students life lessons from the sports. They tend to have winning teams but they dont teach winning is the only thing. They seem to care about the athlete as a person first, student second, and athlete third. The always teach the students to be class acts on and off the field. The administration seems to be firm but also fair. The principal expects the students to act appropriately. Great school great teachers.
