I can't say enough good about Savannah Middle School. All three of my daughters went there and we NEVER had one complaint! Over the top as far as I am concerned! Thank you to the principal for all of her caring and hard work. I have called the school many times early early in the a.m. and she is there and ready to serve and late late at night and once again she is there and ready to serve! :) Smiply the BEST around!

Pay attention to the 'above average' students more then the average, or below average students. Its okay all in all. They have the best teachers ever and the worst teachers ever. there's no in the middle with that subject. (weird huh) its old, so old in fact, that were getting a new school. A very mixed group of kids (socially. as least when I went there) but they let you express yourself pretty well, which is excellent. (piercings, hair dye, etc)
