Honestly as a student that went there, I find it a terrible school.. I went there for 3 years as I only live two blocks away and had no choice. There were a few teachers I had in 8th grade that singled me out for no apparent reason, my mother reported it to the counciller, both principles AND spoke directly to the teachers. They said things such as 'You're not going anywhere in life." "You won't graduate high school" "Why do you even come to school" It was one of the two hours that that class had 2 teachers..all they did was bully the students off of one another. One of the teachers that was the main part of the problem had gotten fired before for dragging someone down the hallway by their hair! Yet she is still allowed to teach? And when a complaint is made about her NOTHING is done? I bet you this year she is singling out another student. She would send me in the hallway daily-not exaggerating..actually daily! And a teacher called Ms.Brady would let me come into her room instead of sitting out there. She knew what happened. This teacher is - Ms. Lewandowski, and then Ms. Eurick was the other one, who later retired for more surgery. If they read this they will know who I am.

Handy is my favorite school mostly because I attend Handy and have many good friends there. Handy has a great learning environment and the teachers are amazingly cool.

The teachers are great, but the administration and disopline is not the best. They need to focus on real issues and take their jobs for granted. I had 3 students go through handy and have 2 still in Handy and in the time, it has changed for the worst. I do like how they have Wildcat Workshop and the exploreatory classes. Extra Actavities at Handy are great too.

Handy Middle School may be the biggest school in the state, but its also the best. Everyone may think that we are a bad school and that we aren't under any control, but the teachers, and other staff members keep us together. We are not the best for say smartwise, but we try our best. We are very good in our competitive sports and in other school related activities such as academic track. We have so much fun at Handy and I don't see why anyone would not want to come here.
