I love this school! It is a small school but teachers work hard to provide for students. There are not as many resources as other middle schools but I chose to stay because I felt the principal and teachers cared about my child. The principal, Ms. Andrews works hard to keep students in school and not just give up on them as many others do. Kudos to Ms. Andrews and the staff at Pearson Middle.

This is a horrible school. Thank God we got out of there. The principle is invisible. No adult supervision anywhere - inside or out. The teachers are immature and incompetent. when a problem was brought up, the principle's response was "Oh well, most of these kids aren't going to graduate anyway". For a arts and humanities school there's very little art anywhere in the building. It was a terrible experience for us.

I give it 5 stars! I love it. My kids love it. I have two boys enrolled right now and they love that they can pick electives and enrichment classes each semester. It's like given them a say on what they enjoy in school. Each elective provides reading and math and allows the children to learn and have fun plus engage in things like the piano, computer skill, chorus, band, dance, puppet making, animations, and it goes on and on. It's wonderful. The teachers are very enthused about getting all the children through and getting them to reach their goals by the end of each school year. I love it!
