Knox Middle School has brought 2 new principals from S. Carolina to help a school in destruction. The 2 principals are great, yet the school is still unsafe, and out of order. The teachers seem to be overwhelmed with their jobs. My child has never engaged in any violent until the 3xs being bullied at Knox. His grades have dropped tremendously and self esteem fluctuates from hopelessness to a nonchalant attitude about school. The Sprigio website for bullying has been proven to be ineffective. The bullying is out of control. The lack of concern from some yet not all the teachers are out of control. If these students and school are not contained, I can see a incident similar to the "Columbine" incident occurring at "Knox Middle School" Home of the Trogan and Home of the Hooligans!!!!

My child currently attends Knox. My child has been continuously bullied. I have spoken with the school authorities several times and still get no resolution. I have also contacted the Salisbury PD and still no resolution. Spoke with attorney that says the majority of cases this office has represented are predominately from Knox and has handled more complaints from Knox than all rowan salisbury schools combined. This is very serious. DO not send your children here if you have any other options. The next school in this district is salisbury high, which isn't safe either. Just recently a freshman was shot in the stomach. Anyone reading this should consider contacting stop-bullying.gov. it will take concerned parents to fix this because it is my opinion that there doesn't seem to be any concerned principals to help.

Knox Middle School is a diverse middle school with a very motivated principal. The band is excellent and is the heart of the school. There are some very involved parents who help make the school better. It is also a school that needs more financial support from the county and state. Parents must be involved with the school and the children to help make it a success. My child has many friends and is very happy with the school. As with most middle schools, some students do pick on others and bully. Some teachers are very engaging and care about the students. Some teachers need to retire. Overall, the school is what the student and family makes of it. It is a real world experience and will prepare students for the real life at Salisbury High School.
