This school is very corrupt. All the teachers were very disrespectful and abrasive to my young boy, and even tried to force him into special education (he doesn't even qualify, mind you) my son did not get the help he needed so we ended up moving to a different school just because of it.

Becker middle school is the best expirience in my life. Im a 6th grader here and when I first got here all the students and teachers were really nice. I cant think anything bad about this school really. My orchestra teacher and all other teachers I think are out of the best. Best wishes Becker middle school and i will see you in 7th grade for sure!!
