Colonia Middle School is a great school from the great teachers who update me with my son's struggle in his first year in middle school they respond to my emails immediately. I can call and speak with the principal and she is very helpful with all the school resources. They have homework club, sports club, choir, softball and basketball teams. They have a patriot reward system for kids when they participate and help others in school and they have a zero tolerance for BULLYING. The socialworkers and guidance counselors are receptive to our concerns and they reassured us kids usually take a little longer to acclimate to their new responsibilites and time managment skills. nonetheless this a .

More discipline and more academics is needed. Not happy with the middle school unfortunately. Thinking of moving my kids to a private school although it will be hard to come up with the money.

Colonia Middle School is a great school. As a parent who has a child that is unorganized but extremely bright, I cannot complain. From the principal right down through the faculty caring is a number one priority. They take each child as an individual and work with that student accordingly. Great school.

This is a terrible school. They grade you on your organizational skills not on how smart you are. They took my son out of honors math and put him in regular math because he's messy.

i agree with the parent who indicated discipline has been a problem as of late. The lunchroom is unruly. New teachers don't seem to be evaluated properly. The vice principle seems the only one that cares and very professional. I'd rather see her as a principle and not a VP. As far as the teachers, I agree, teachers should be fully evaluated and they just don't care. Just because a child is having difficulties learning at school, does not mean she or he is a dummy. If they're struggling, well guess what, it falls under the teachers for not teaching the way they should. Overall I feel the school is a 6, it's an ok school.

As of this year there is a new vice principal......She runs the school fair and is very organized and atop of the problems and is solving or helping many.....some teachers need to have more respect for students and some need to gain some backbone.....

Discipline problems are not just in the lunchroom - many classes seem to have serious problems.
