IIts a good school but I'm going to miss it alot when I go to high school


Posted August 29, 2009

I love this school. I would suggest anyone this school,you will come out smart. I do wish the dress code was not so strict though. Besides that this is a great school to send your kids, youll find they have great staff.

This school is the worst school. I am a student at the middle school, I'm in the seventh grade and i hate it. The school has way too much drama and bullying. The teachers are pretty much horible, one of the teachers could not keep his class under controll for anything. The hallways are way too crowded, you can hardly get down the hallway without getting shoved into something/somebody. I also don't understand the dress code. You cannot wear a shirt with a graphic or logo over 3 inches unless it has a collar, these shirts are very hard to find. If I were a parent I would most definetly NOT put my child in this school.

I give you all stars, when I was in middle school I had so much fun. There isn't much I can say about high school I think the dress code here is getting really rediculous in alot of ways, like when I was in Middle School down there i did not have to tuck my shirt in or the teachers nor principles never judged me they were great there. If it wasn't for them I can honestly say I indefinately would not be were I am now so thanks alot.

um they should really do something about the locker times between classes it is HECTIC im in the 7th grade and you can barely go through the halls without getting pushed or shoved they should asign certian people at a time to go so there is not so many people in the halways you should really consider the idea because if not one day someone is going to get hurt...
