This is my child's first year at NGMS. It has been horrible. The principal does not return phone calls. No one pays attention to who goes in and out of the school. There are major safety issues. The receptionist is so rude to parents. My child had a wonderful ELA teacher and a wonderful
social studies teacher, but the math teacher was absolutely terrible. She should not be working with kids. She is a bully! I will not be sending my child there next year.
North Garner Middle School is a terrible school. The principal does nothing to help with the safety concerns parents have. People go in and out of the school without anyone making them sign in at the office. Students leave the school cutting through the staff parking lot and crossing the Street because their parents don't want to wait in carpool. The principal does nothing to stop this dangerous problem. My child had a math teacher that Is a bully. When the sixth graders ask questions she tells them they should know that already. She takes pleasure in embarrassing students. She does not post any grades on power school or answer emails. The principal does nothing about her. She does not send interims home on time or sometimes not at all. When I brought this to Mr. Butler's attention nothing was done about it. This has been the worst year! This is a horrible school with a few good teachers. My child's ELA and Social Studies teachers were excellent. Her Spanish teacher was also great. The principal needs to do his job!!!!! My child will not be returning next year!
Creech Road was one of the best schools i have ever been to. They had a step team,chorus,and play works. they got a new Principal last year. He came to every school after event. And he was fun to be around.He would come to the kids class rooms every day. We had the best times with the talent shows , pep rally's , and school dances. The teachers were loving to each student. They would tell us what it was like going to middle school. My fifth grade teacher gave us home work and she would treat it like a sixth grade teacher would she toke off points for every day it was late but she would try her best to make u turn it in. This is the best school ever!!!!!!!!!!!
I don't understand why there are bad reviews! I went to NGMS for the 2011-2012 in sixth grade, and I loved it! Yes, I can agree with the other student about the sagging issue. I don't know about the "broken chin" or "glass breaking" because sixth grade was one of the best school years of my life! I met awesome people that I'm still in contact with today at NGMS. From what I remember, it wasn't the cleanest of schools, but it was great and I loved it. Highly recommend.
Teachers and staff do nothing when a student is physically or verbally harassed by other students, in plain sight. Glasses broken, punched in the chin, lunches flipped over, books thrown to the ground. Can't abide by this anymore.
This school is not the best for its academics. I am a current 7th grader there and I am not happy with most of my teachers. I have had so many problems that the school puts aside. I do not suggest going to this school if you want the best for your child. I can not wait to leave for there is so much bulling going on, and fights every day in the halls, that teachers and staff do not take care of. It is as if the students run the school and push the teachers around. The dress code states that sagging is not allowed yet everywhere you go in the halls people are sagging and the staff does not do any thing about it. Some of the staff is extremely rude or the teacher is too nice to his/her students and let them get away with too much. One of my teachers (who is actually considered to be one of the better ones in the school) tells us on a regular basis how much she dislikes teaching and that she should have kept her old job.
Though some of the teachers are communicative and responsive to parents, not all of them are. I regularly communicate with one out of three of my child's core teachers. Another teacher and I communicate sporadically and the third refuses to communicate. I am not impressed with the staff response to reports of bullying. My child is bullied, has been hit, has had possessions taken away, and is constantly subject to offensive and foul language. The administration's response to reports of bullying is that they talk to the offender and everything is handled. That offers no comfort to a parent of a child who is being harassed, intimidated, and threatened while at school or on the school bus. If you have a choice, do not send your child here if you want your child to receive an education. Kids here are more concerned with acting and looking like a hoodlum thug than learning. I am looking into other options for my child.
Terrible school. Son has been bullied from day one. Kids wear pants that sag even though school policy says they shouldn't but no one re-inforces it. Teachers are nice but students are the worse I've ever seen in any public school probably due to lack of parental control and maybe they come from single parent home where no discipline is established.
