pretty good, I was getting bored and some teachers liked to just choose who they wouldn't like. I did everything right and they marked things incomplete. Other than that and the teachers don't let you do anything fun, it was okay.

I am entering ninth grade and it is a really excellent school. The teachers really push you and if you fall behind, they do their best to help you catch up.

I'm in high school now, but I went to SoJo (as the kids call it) and I think it's a great school. I was really pushed to excel in academics. Also, it's a good environment for the most part. I only saw one fight the entire time I was there. The only not-so-good part of this school is that it's sooo preppy and if you're not preppy, you're not gonna be one of the 'popular' kids... Just something I noticed. However, I have lots of great memories from that school.

This school has a great environment with kids that care more about who hangs out with who...and how bad the parties were last weekend. There isn't bad principles being taught and if there is ever a problem it is address long before it ever reaches the student body.

This is an excellent middle school. The staff if very positive and really care about the students. The students are respectful for the most part and care about their academic achievement. The teachers are top notch. Would be hard to find a better school for this age group anywhere!

It was a very good experience for my children, I think very highly of this school! It's probably one of the best schools in the district no doubt about it!
