I think Crockett Middle School is the best because they have the best staff. I think they have the best 6th grade teachers because they are really nice to the students.

I currently go to crocket right now when first attended crocket middle school I thought it was a cool school but as the months started to pass by kids started cussin fighting in the bus outside in the lunch room and even sometimes in the hallways they sometimes bully other kids about the way the look and sometimes about their lack of education most of the good kids turn bad then most of the bad kids turn worst.

I'm a student at Crockett Middle School I think the teachers are great and they teach you alot of things that you would of never of knew before.But some of the students at crockett that are bullies and they make fun of kids.I know this because I was bullied at crockett and I don't think another kid should have to go through that.Also I think that high school is so so so so so much better and I disliked middle school!

I think that Crockett Middle School has great teachers and they can teach you what you didn't even know before.But some of the students and listen to the teachers.Crockett has alot of bullies at Crockett and they tease students and the only thing they get for it is lunch detention for making somebody cry.

I went to this school last year and I loved it, its hard because that school accepts kids from different locations and when they move up to high school they lose there friends. Other than that I thought the school was amazing and I learned so much from there.

I have a child that attends Crockett Middle school who is disabled. I never thought I'd say this about a Hamilton Twp school because I have attended Hamilton Twp schools but when it comes to Special Education students in Crockett, the school really has no idea what they are doing and how to handle children like this.

My son is a child who has a learning disability and he is in a smaller class size for the main subjects. The teachers at Crockett have been wonderful. He has more confidance in himself. He doesn't get frustrated when he doesn't get a new concept right away.

I have two children who have attended Crockett. Both were honor roll students and both played sports there. One of the VP's is not the best but the other is great and the Principal is great! Teachers are wonderful there! The PTA does wonderful things for the children too!

Crockett Middle Student provides an excellent well-rounded school experience for children. They have a state of the art Library, exceptional music classes and offer academic choices for every level. I have had 2 students attend and 1 who is curently attending. Both children were in the gifted and talented program at this school and they are excelling in high school at this time because of the quality of the school and the staff.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
