I and my family have been to both large and small schools and have never been to such a poorly run school as Kalkaska Middle School. When bullying is coming from the principal down and not taken care of there is a real problem. If I had a choice to do it all over again...I would rather home school my child or send them to another middle school. The leadership and teaching staff totally needs to be revamped and should think of the students FIRST.

They talk a talk but don't care about the main thing.KIDS. My child was having troubles in school with some kids, tried to get help from staff and was told she didn't want to hear it. Later with an attempted suicide the School still will not listen to what the problems are. They have never returned the phone calls to us as we are trying to get help. This school, staff and administration does not care about kids only money.!!!

The Middle School has a Great Administrative Staff and very professional teachers. By the way, I think Chuck Hubbell should be voted teacher of the year for thinking only of his students and making school seem like a cool place to be and learn. Maybe naming a building after him would show gratitude from the community for his leadership and teachin style. Sincerely, Earl L. Coon

The taxes are too high for the quality (rather lack of) transportation that is received. The teachers are great and my son is getting a worthy education.

I have found out first hand the quality of school that Kalkaska Middle School has. My son has some special needs that require that he gets some extra help now and then. Most of his teachers were more than willing to commit to helping my son succeed. I only ran into one teacher that really didn't want to be bothered with giving him the extra help that he needed and had a very difficult time retreiving grades for him from this teacher to ensure that he was on the right path. This in turn turned out to an adventure in summer school this year. Knowing this, I still believe that Kalkaska has a long way to go to become one of the top schools in my opinion. Also there is a great need for the return of regular bussing for the schools. We as parents rely on a public tranportation system that is not very reliable and some children are forced to walk several miles to get transportation to school. Having said this, Kalkaska is definatly in desperate need of finacial support in order for our children to succceed in this finacially disabled community.
