Schilling Farms Middle School5

My school is Schulling Farms Middle . The school is part of the newly formed Collierville School district. The instruction is of the highest caliber. The students are orderly and have a very structured dress code and conduct expectations. The PTSA is very strong and raising considerable funds each year for lots of extras to provide the students and teachers.
It makes me disappointed to see the degrading reviews for this school.I am now a freshman and looking back i really miss pretty much all of the teachers that I had! I have no clue what school you/your child went to if you are saying the teachers don't care, i love the school because the teachers honestly love what they do and love the kids.The dress code is neither unreasonable,nor ugly,although i will not miss polos.And, for all those putting down the wonderful and terrific principal,she is now retiring so happy day for you.Schilling Farms does have rules and doesn't accept bullying.If you/your child has a problem with that I would make sure yoour child is not a bully him/herself. I LOVED being in the band,and it helped me out in school. Mrs.Mclain,Mr.M.Jones,Mr.Beadle,and Mrs.Coudriet are all amazing and helped me to love their subjects. I had fun at this school,I learned to better person at this school,I grew up at this school,and I will always miss this school. -Clark
This school is by far the worst experience my child and our family have ever encountered. Do not expect any teacher to care about your child. Do not expect the principal or vice principal to respond when you have problems with any of the teachers etc. If they do respond, it will be put on you as the parent or the student. This school is like a culture shock coming from ANY elementary school in Collierville. My child went to an EXCELLENT elementary school (Bailey Station - it is the BEST!!) Coming to this school is like a nightmare, do not expect the teachers to communicate, they will not call you back, they will not email you back. Apparently they send every email through the headmasters before they will reply to you. Very sad they care so little about the students as individuals.
SFMS is a great school. I have had nothing but great interactions with the staff and administration. The teachers do email back within 24 hours and I love the communication with agendas being sent home for 6th grade students AND by email. The teachers even go out of their way to send home 9 week project list for their 6th grade students. The parents who are upset about Schilling are usually the ones who didn't get their way and NOW want to ruin the reputation of the school. I think that is sad. BTW...why wait until next year. School just started take them now. We don't want your negative vibe there anyway.
Administration and staff don't care about the well being of the students. All requests have been answered with apathy and ignorance. The principal and vice principal ignore repeated phone requests and the teachers email back at about a 25% rate. We will be switching schools this year due to the lack of caring by most of the staff at this school.
