I Have been to this school on many occasions for multiple reasons and can only say ," What in the world is happening?". Trying to speak with an administrator is held to an appointment only basis they never seem to be available to deal with parents when situations arise. I have put one child through this school and a second is in his final year. " Thank God, if this is an example of Nash counties finest then there is truly a need for reorganization because the system is broke. I really feel the teachers are seeking a pay check and the adminstrators are politicians working a system trying to get the next open spot. They want us to believe our children are there main focuse but the results do not correspond.

Im a student who used to go SNMS. I hated it! every day I would be bullied and picked on. I would also be scared because of the threats that have been given about shootings and stabings. When I recived A/b honor roll some kids came up to me and said I was a nerd and knocked down all of the books in my hand. When I told a teacher of this she said(and i quote)"Get over it.". In summary the school is very old, the kids are very hateful, the teacher are mean, and nothing is done about it! - a student

This school is continuing to improve each year. Despite pay cuts, furloughs, benefit cuts and many of us having to work two jobs, we have a dedicated group of people that truly care about the students. We need our parents to support us more than ever during these tough times. I would welcome more parents to help us with our fund raisers, respond through schoolnotes/contacts, and maintain high standards for their child at home as well as school. I believe in our leadership/administration whom refuses to settle for second best and continually strives to keep only those teachers whom really want to give their best for their students. Please understand teaching middle school is NOT easy, but can be very rewarding......WE need our parents to know that we are aware that we have "not arrived" to a school of excellence yet, but we are improving!!!!

I have to agree about the unorganization of this school and their staff. Why does it take 1 principle and 2 assistant principles to run a school. Explain to me why if you have a problem you have to see the guidance counselor and/or the assistant principle. I myself would think that is the principles job first and foremost. What does she get paid to do pass the buck.

There are a lot of unorganized teachers at this school who show favoritism to students who have money. It seems that most of the children who are chosen for anything are always the same ones, the families with $$$$

Not very impressed.....teachers seem up to standard, but administration is not quick to respond to your calls...sometimes there is not an adminstrator on campus, when the students are still there. Very old school...hope that it gets a 'facelift'n the bear future.

Not impressed and this is suppose to be the best middle school in Nash county. I think Nash County is far behind in education. I do think the school is well run as far as dicipline. NOt perfect , but they try to keep it safe.

I think the school should have more currricular and after school activities. wake county schools have very interesting electives and curricular activites for students in middle school, like cooking class, spanish class, french class, skating team, and some even have a dance team. I think that nash county schools should also have this kind of classes and activities, activities that I've heard are very interesting and have kept middle school students from smoking and doing drugs. These activities give the students something very nice and fun to do. So my point is that nash county schools shoudl have more activities and classes like this.
