The absolute worst school that my children EVER went to!!! The children were out of control and the teachers didn't seem to care much. I never that going to school could be such a horrible experience. I am moving so that my children wil not be in the district and forced to go there again!

i went here when i was in the 7th grade, i was in 7-8 i think i cant really remmeber right now... this school is great for your student if he/she wants to make a lot of new friend and get an eduction.


Posted April 8, 2010

this is quite possibly the worst school i have ever seen. the violence in this school is outrageous. there is gang activity everyday and nothing is done to curtail this behavior. if you have a child who is bright and enjoys school as a learning experience do not send them here. the majority of the children are more in need of dicipline than education. the mojority of the teachers are nice but when there is no control over the students thier attempts at education are futile. other faculty behave as though they are still in middle school themselves, encouraging inappropriate behavior by displaying it themselves. this school has been on the need of improvement list for 5 years. what this school needs is joe clark or to be shut down.

This school is a no-no. Like what the other student said, it does not prepare you for highschool, let alone college. You know something is up when textbooks arent asigned. This school WILL make you lazy. Teachers dont seem to care to much either. Does not teach responsibility. Trust me, all this is from an 8th grader's first hand experience.

I think this school is not a good way to prepare kids for high school and even college.They walk us to classs,bathroom,even lunch.They dont even let us use lockers....I mean its like they're holding our hands like babies.So if you want your child to be responsible and ready for life....Do not choose raliegh egypt middle schoo.!!!!

Raleigh Egypt is the best school in Memphis and students enjoy what they do there.

THis school is absolutely wonderful. They challenge the children, help them to understand their work whether it is playing games or teachers explaing it to them. I attend Raliegh Egypt Middle and I am very pleased with it other than the fact that we have to wear uniforms. This school provides very good disiplinary charges. I am very pleased. I started going to Mt. Pisgah Middle but now that I go to Raleigh Egypt I get Algebra and all extra curricular activities which Mt. Pisgah didn't provide. They only had cheerleading and basketball for extra curricular activities. I don't think that was fair for the students who didn't have the potental to be a basketball playercheerleader.
