This school is crazy. It has at least a fight a day, it's ridiculous. This school decide tally needs a face lift (major) the bathrooms have water damage on the ceilings!! We had recently gotten new AC and heater units, and gracious they can't even keep a steady and comfortable temperature, there is constantly people coming in the classroom fixing the units and disrupting our class time for something that shouldn't even happen. And these fights are outrageous, they need to fix this problem immediately they expect school to be fun but if these little 6th graders come on the first day and get beat by a fellow class mate that's rediculous. FIX THIS NOW...

With the help of a grant, every student now has their own iPad, so technology has emerged in every classroom. It has been wonderful for students as well as staff. The kids love them and have been very responsible with them! Our students will be ready for the changing world! So thankful to work here!

I work at E Russell Hicks Middle, The staff is very caring and adamant about learning. They have HW Club and limited after school activities. They care about each and every child. More success could occur if parents could be available to connect with the school for activities, dinner, and meet the teachers night. The administration is very caring and open to suggestions in regards to your child! I love working here at ERH!

This school is in need of a severe overhaul with its staff. The bullies are numerous and it doesn't matter how many forms you submit. Cafeteria brawls and locker room beatings. This school is not a place I want my kids to go.

Staff is rude. Show severe favoritism. Disciplinary procedures seem to vary depending on how much they like the student. Can't wait til my kids are out of that school.

All four of our children attended E Russell Hicks over the last 7 years and for the most part they really enjoyed their experiences at the school. As parents who participated in the PTA, band boosters, field trips...my wife and I got to see first hand the dedication and effort of the staff; from the Principal to the custodians. The band program is top notch as well, as the two band directors' demonstrate incredible leadership and dedication to the musicians in their program. An excellent school!

This is my son's 1st yr at E.Russel Hicks. I am impressed with teacher parent communication. (for the most part) I e-mail his teachers almost weekly touching base.They have always had an open door policy (after school of course. They are always there to answer my questions and concerns. I especially love my son's math teacher. My son struggled in Math the past 3 yrs. This year he is loving it. I feel his teacher Miss.Litten is the main reason for this. I also give a BIG Thanks to Mr.and Mrs. Scally Merit S.S. He is loving the class and it shows in his work. Miss.Bambrick is wonderful,( my son has not been as motivated as he is now about Reading. ( Thank yoo very Much)

My son goes to this school for 7th & 8th grade. Some of the teachers are questionable. But most of them are terrific. Their disciplinary actions are not great. Not enough extracurricular activities. Overall it's a pretty good school. Not great but good. My son has been an honor student, but they don't recognize that as a good thing. I'm only speaking from our experience. We stressed how important education is, they just shrugged it off and ignored my comments.

My daughter has gone to this school for 2 years and loves it. The teachers are fantastic and the staff is very couteous and friendly. We would recommend this school to anyone. She has been an honor roll student for those 2 years and was even voted into the national honor society for middle schools.
