Nagel is a great school but, after going to elementary where you get treated as a kid, they put you right into nagel and give you too many responsibilities and things to do. I personally think they move way too fast for some people like me. Some people have lots of things going on at home that make it hard to keep up with their pace. If this isn't your child, they are lucky. Other wise Nagel is a great school!

They give you a bunch of homework and very little time to do the homework. But the teachers try to help as much as they can. Its a great school but very strict and hard.

We are very pleased with Nagel MIddle School. The staff is wonderful. They are genuinely interested in the children's academic and emotional well being. The principal Natasha Adams is a very involved leader and as a parent, I really feel like she is our team mate in our daughter's success at Nagel. We particularly like Mr. Varner, the science teacher. He's been exceptional. After coming from what we thought was a good school district in Texas, we have been astounded at the much greater level of concern for our children's well being, the impressive level of academic success and the employment of technology in amazing ways to make sure the parents and students are plugged into everything that goes on at Nagel. We feel like we are getting a private school education in the public school system.

The principal is not very involved. The teacher there are amazing and most parents are it the PTA.

''If you can make it through Nagel Middle School, then high school is a breeze.' Why? Size: Students are stunned when six neighborhood elementary schools funnel into a single 'Mega-Middle School'. Parents Disappear: parent involvement is encouraged in elementary schools, but discouraged at Nagel. Students can 'grow' in undesirable ways. Rookie Teacheres: Nagel is the 'proving ground' for many new teachers in the district (they are paired with experienced teachers, but...) Yet: Nagel has the district's newest building (built in 1999). Many clubs, activities, and athletics (3 football teams!) are available. The administration gets kudos for splitting students into smaller 'teams' that concentrate 'core' courses in the same team area of the school.

Having had 3 children at Nagel so far, It's been my experience that the kids who excelled above and beyond in elementary school do well at Nagel. However, those who do average work in elementary school seem to struggle. Your particular experience at Nagel also depends on the team your child is on. I have had good experiences, and I have had not so good experiences. I think with the present principal, things are getting a bit better, though. She seems to truly care about the kids. I hate to be negative, but the majority of parents I have talked to are less than thrilled with the school. The saying among many of us is 'If you can make it through Nagel Middle School, then high school is a breeze.' All in all, the school is okay, but there's definitely room for growth.

This school is amazing. My son has gone to Mercer and came here to Nagel. My son is always eager to go to school. He made several new friends in a short time with the help of exellent teaching, discipline, and entertainment of this school. The teachers are comfortable to students. They have a great principal.This school has several exellent sport activities or any after school activity. Nagel is filled with fun and great education for students. This school is improving more and more every year. As my opinion Nagel has better school quality in education, facility, entertainment than other exellent rated schools like Sycamore, Indian Hill, and Wyoming School Districts, and it really should be. We were thinking about moving to Sycamore School District but we decided to stay and we were lucky and made a great choice.
