this school by far was the mos lively I've ever attended. my 8th grade here was absolutely remember-able! and the teachers helped create a great environment. only thing is that you can get in to a lot of trouble here for very little, speaking from own personal experience. all in all Chester Boren Middle School, would be on my top list of schools to send your children for a wonderful 3 years.
