I am a parent of 3kids who all attend Pfms and i have visited school often and staff has always been very friendly & helpful. I feel very secure with the staff and feel my kids are getting the best education our county has to offer. Thanks to all the teachers & staff for thier time and dedication to my kids!!

My child is a special needs student who attends here and I have been very disappointed in the communication and the education provided. If you have a special needs child, I would not suggest this school.

Two of my children have been going to PFMS for several years now, and I believe I have chosen the perfect school for them. They have, and have had in the past, so many opportunities to build their character and learn to succeed in life. Thank you Pigeon Forge Middle.

My child has been a student with both Pigeon Forge Primary and Pigeon Forge Middle School for several years. We have been very fortunate to have teachers and staff that have expressed concern and respect to our child as well as other children. I strongly believe our child has received an extremely good start in her education and we are looking forward to her years in Pigeon Forge High School. The accelerated reading program has really encouraged our child to read and now she reads all summer long by choice.

Pigeon Forge Middle School has many wonderful teachers.There are character building projects implemented,teachers that want each child not only to learn but succeed, and vice principals and office staff that work well with parents and students to ensure each child has adequate opportunities to learn,engage in extracurricular activities, and prosper in all areas.
