This could be a great school but the lack of teacher responsibility to parents and inconsistent leadership with the Administration makes it way below average. We have had a terrible year with problem after problem with "new" teachers, and experienced teachers not contacting parents in a timely manner with any problems. I do not recommend this Middle School even though it is supposed to be a "better" school in a good neighborhood. They do not teach the kids to be responsible (treat then like grade school students in some ways) and either over-react to a problem or do too little about it. We will be very happy to be out in here in 5 weeks. My daughter who is in Gifted classes loved school before this and now does not like this school. Very sad. With that said she did have a few great teachers, but overall a waste of a school year that she could have been prepped for High School in a more positive and constructive way.

Since the school finished being renovated and added onto last year, it is an awesome school. The teachers are awesome.

I think that this school is fair, the fact of no air conditioning is one of the schools only flaws. Going to Mickle for three years I have yet to see any improvement. I would never think of sending my children there until AC was in stalled .

I think Robin Mickle Middle School is an ok school to attend. It doesn't have air conditioning. The lunch food is fair. Most of the students are treated equally. Mickle has a great vocal music program.
