This school and the staff are wonderful. Things run smoothly and are very well organized. Technological tools used are helpful for students. The kids are very well taken care of.

Absolutely agree with the previous comment - this school is a mediocre school. I strongly believe that the main reason is its inadequate staff and its principal. He is not an educator. This man disrespects and intimidates parents and kids. Parents are not able to discuss children's progress, the parent teacher conference is limited to a very few lucky ones. The school has a serious bullying problem while the principal claims it does not exists in that school. He is either out of touch with reality or is simply dishonest. Perhaps both. I am quite disappointed with the school district that does not seem to have a basic mechanism of reviewing this principal performance with the parents and not interested in parents feedback regarding the teachers or the principal. This principal deserves only negative remarks and the kids are suffering.

This middle school is mediocre at best. The Principal does not have the interpersonal skills to communicate with students and parents effectively. There are some teachers who also do not have the necessary skill set to be effective teachers. Overall if you are looking for an average middle school - this is it. It is no wonder that the school district failed twice to pass a $200m bond for infrastructure improvements. If the quality was half way decent, most parents would probably have voted yes

Kids can be themselves here--the very thing a middle schooler needs. Teachers have all been superb, involved, and go the extra mile.
