I've been very happy with this school. I have a 6th and 7th grader. Mr Blount is a wonderful Language Arts teacher who keeps the kids engaged in their work. The Principal is on top of what is happening in the school. I have no complaints so far.

My daughter is in the 6th grade and she loves it. My only complaint now is homework on weekends. Children who work hard 5 days a week do not need homework on the weekends. The weekends are for family, etc., not school.

I attend this school and love it so much! My teachers are always there when i need any extra help. My school is all about english/language arts and math. Yopu can take prealgebra in 7th grade and take algebra 1 in 8th grade for a high school credit. This also applies to english. Thank you!*

This is my son's first year in middle school. I must say that the transition has been smooth. He has adapted to a more responsible school environment. He has very qualified, caring teachers who has the best interest of the students in mind. The principal is young yet qualified. When I drop my son off in the mornings, I see the principal meeting and greeting the students. I have yet to see him with anything but a smile on his face in the mornings. The parents are involoved heavily with the school and its activities. That make a positive difference and impact on the school and the students.

The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
