I can plainly see from staff meetings the ultimate goal for this county is to have all Meigs graduates be teachers as well. This is such a tight nit community I have never felt as if I belong. I am currently seeking other employment as I feel I will never be accepted. I am sure many students feel this same way if they are new to this district. They believe in their sports above all else. It's very sad that so many children become labeled as trouble makers if they do not participate in sports AND have any learning challenges. There are very few teachers that even attempt to go above and beyond for children that obviously need help.

teachers spend to much time talking on their cell phones to one another instead of teaching leaving children an excessive amount of homework

I am a former student MeigsMiddel. I am in Texas now. I greatly mess everybody I agree with my good friend we do have an awesome athletic department.We do need a better dress code because looking a like is stupid. Every body in Meigs may not have money but we wouldn't make fun of people that dress nice or not so nice.Yes we do need money we are a poverty county.

I am a student at meigs middle school of Deatur, Tennessee. I want to be as fair as I can on the rating. now to buisness the academic programs are fairly adequate, as for the availability of music , art, sports ETC. sports is a way of life here. But as for arts, music, and other activities I feel that not a lot of empahasis is put on these things. Parent Involvement- I'm not sure on this but my mom does like to stay involved. to conclude, i think my school is doing okay But they could do better...if they had a little money

Meigs Middle is a great school! The teachers are abesolutely amazing and the academic programs are very good. Their sports and extraciricular activities include basketball, football, softball, baseball, cheerleading, golf, Beta club, 4H, and chess. The parents are very involved. The dress code is looks very nice an is very, very respectable. This truly is a wonderful- wonderful school.

No parent involvment. It is more like health class. Forced dress code. The children have lost their individuality. Although some are allowed to break the dress code rules.
