This is a great school! During my entire time being at this school I have always maintained honor role and sometimes even high honors. I have had all good teacher except for one that does not teach at all, that just gives worksheets and tells us to go one the computer to find the answers. This school also is uptodate with technology, they have smart boards in every class room and brand new computers.

I love this school! I am an 8th grader and all the teachers are exceptionally awesome and they all teach so well! One teacher who has been EXTREMELY helpful was Mr.Muffley. He placed things of Social Studies in a funny way! I had him in 6th grade and I when I look back now, I can see how lucky I was that I had a teacher like no other....a teacher like Mr. Muffley! :)

I am withdrawing my child from PPMS after one year. It feels to me like this year has been waisted. My child is in all honors classes and gets all A's and B's but that is only because they teach to the tests, they are neglecting the big picture; the whole child. My other issue is the language, and sexual info from the other students that my child has been exposed to. It is way, way, way beyond where it should be. My child has come home telling me about drugs, suicides, sex, depression, eating disorders...I've had enough, I have had other children go through PPMS, I'm not naive or blind but this is too much. I know there is now where to hide from this, but I believe that in a smaller school with a smaller population, parents and administration can keep a bit of a tighter rein on things.

I am an 8th grader at this school and I am happy to be a part of it. Yes, I've been picked on somewhat and bullied, but it's just like any other middle school. In my 7th grade year there was like 2 fights in my grade. Matter a fact I was in one of them, but please note I was only defending myself, and was suppended for 3 days. There are a couple things I woul like to change that could be better but overall this is a great school and I'm proud to be a part of it. Mr. Seawell is a great principle and in this year improvements have been made. I was put in almost all honors classes this year, and they are great and more challenging! Unfortunitly I am switching schools though because I am moving and I will miss PPMS!

With Principal Mr. Seawell in place, PPMS is finally on the right track. For the first time, my son doesn't hate school. No more humiliating public punishments (the wall), and kids are finally being allowed to sit with their friends at lunchtime. We miss Ms. Valentin, but Mrs. Catlett (Dean of Students) is proving to be a great asset and advocate for students. I, for one, am so happy with the improvements.

I attend this school and I am ashamed to say that I am part of it. This school could be made better if we could wear backpacks and had a better principal who treats us like 8th graders, not 3rd graders.

The new principal is a source of concern, but she seems to be coming around. And PPMS will start looking good to all

Plum Point Middle School would benefit from improving its atmosphere for students. Our sixth grader has had a difficult transition from elementary to middle school. (Elementary was a positive experience.) It has taken numerous phone calls and conferences to advocate for the needs of our child. A great disappointment.
