Teacher effectiveness: Somewhat effective
September 07, 2015
The teachers here love their students and truly want their students to grow and learn but since the schools administratives have started to pass kids that don't try and continue to make failing grades their have been more and more kids getting the "I don't care" attitude making it that much harder on the teachers to get through to their students!

Amount of homework: Just right

The teachers are awesome! They give just enough to keep the brain running without being over loaded, and have time to have it done without much stress!

There's no grit, determination or persistence when a failing student is being taught they'll be administratively passed so why would those students have any of this IN A POSITIVE WAY OTHER THEN A PERSISTENCE OF NOT HAVING TO DO THE WORK?

How can there be 100% respect when the students that work hard to pass their grades when the students that don't care and fail yet are given the same status same promotion as the successful hard working students?

It's is unfair to not only the students that work hard, study and turns in all their school/home work but teachers as well to share a class with students that continually interrupt class fail to turn in their school/home work, fail their EOG's yet get promoted to the next grade with all F's making it that much harder on the students and teachers!

My child along with several other students are being taught that you don't have to do your work make F's throughout the year And be administratively pass to the next grade causing students to remain in 9th-10th grades for 2-3 years due to not knowing the work! I personally tried to talk to the principal and she in so many words said she could do whatever she wants! I've talked to a teacher and I was informed the teachers are too the point of not caring because they aren't being supported in the class rooms!! I 100% agree are being slapped in the face and the administration's that pass these failing students are failing the student body as a whole!

Speight Middle School is a great school for students of any middle school level. Speight got a new prinipal, Mr. Jeremy Stevens, who has shown leadership and done a lot of great things for our school. The teachers are the best in the world and will help with anything. Speight is one of the best schools and that's all that needs to be said. -Aaron Long

I was not impressed with this school for many reasons. After hearing just one too many horror stories about things that took place in the restrooms during breaks, I took my child out of this school. Also, it became very obvious to me that none of the teachers knew my child at all when we discussed her at the parent/teacher meetings; I actually asked them if we were discussing the same kid! I have also heard several teachers screaming at the kids. I understand that the job is frustrating, but it is what the teachers were hired to do, and I don't feel that all the kids should be screamed at for the actions of one or two.

I think my school, Speight Middle School, is an excellent school. Speight offers many classes for students who need special attention and students who are above average in their grade level classes. We have electives that interest us based upon our social and physical lives. There are many clubs and teams that we can join. Sports are offered in seventh and eighth grades and Drill Team is offered in all grades. You have to try out for those things, but fun comes with hard work. Speight isn't a bad school. There's lots of teachers who care about their students, regardless of how old or young the teacher is. Our teachers show us the support that many kids don't get. Speight Middle School has more to offer than just education. We all learn to work hard, work together, and try to have fun doing it. That's what counts, isn't it?
