well i'm a rising 7th grader this yer I was in 6th. they need to handle bad kids better. I think that sometimes they rush and go to fast theres to much work. Gym is sometimes boring. But other than that is


Posted October 2, 2012

This school's staff work fairly hard on providing a safe environment in-school, but seems complacent about correcting bus overloading that has, in most instances, 3-4 students per two-person seat on my child's route. Believe this to be unsafe and that students shouldn't regularly be expected to sit on top of one another each day as a matter of course.

I think overall the school Hungary Creek Middle School is good BUT bullying has become a problem. All over the news and social media it is being discussed to make everyone aware. My grandson seems to be bullied every day by the same group of boys especially one. We have a motto 'No Bullying Va". There needs to be more discussion, films, punishment and "STOP IT"campaign at this school to get a handle on the situation. I realize teachers can not see all but it would help when brought to their attention the bullies are punished more often.

The academic level is awesome, the staff is wonderful and supported!! They help you when and where help is needed. They stick to their word. The principals and the assistant principals make you feel safe. They embrace you with love and encouragement. They don't tolerate bullying. They come up with wonderful systems to prevent bad things from happening to the students. The school is clean and very easy to fing your way around. They trust their student, and the give students privilges when they earn them.

Great teachers! Overwhelming time is spent dealing with discipline than instruction. Not fair to teachers, students and parents who moved to this location.

i go to Hcms and it is the best school ever and i love the sports im made the wrestling team again this my 2nd year then ima keep doing it


Posted May 23, 2010

I went to Hungary Creek 2 years ago. I am now an honor/AP student at Tucker Highschool. Hungary Creek did nothing to prepare me for highschool academics. Most of the teachers that work at tucker agree.

Excellent teachers, athletics and administrators. Mr. Moose and Mrs. Armbruster are very caring and friendly. The teachers strive to enhance the learning every way they can.

I totally love having my child at this school. Middle school has been a positve adjustment due to this great school and wonderful teachers that the keep the learning environment positive, motivating and fun. The comradery of the teachers is quite apparent. Plenty of activities and a great PTA. I love to watch the principal run her school, she is so good with the students, parents and teachers. I could not have asked for a better middle school for my child.

Our principal, Mrs. Armbruster, is so nice. All of us love her. And we love her so much, that if she wants us to be disciplined, we will be disciplined. Hngary Creek Middle School is the best school ever. I was going to attend Moody, but I'm glad that I went to Hungary Creek instead.

Posted November 7, 2008

I have two children that attended Hungary Creek, and they really loved it. I loved the staff there- they were always willing to talk with parents and they really work hard for their students. There are many opportunities for students to get involved and have fun. If you are lucky enough to move into the area, you will be very pleased with the education and experience your children will have attending there.

Hungary Creek is the Best!!!

Hungary Creek is the best middle school a person could want to go to! The principals are so ceative and in touch with the students. As a parent I love having my child there, I always know the latest things. It's a parent's dream school!

Posted July 24, 2007

This is an awesome middle school with fabulous staff and administration. Mrs. Armbruster, the principal, is perhaps one of the best the state has to offer. She is dedicated to her students and her staff. We feel very fortunate to have had this school in our daughter's and soon our son's lives. Thank you HCMS!
