We moved to Poqouson after the school had already started - my 12 yr old was assigned several different kids his first week to get him to the right classes & ease some nerves from being new (especially helpful in a smaller community) He loves the school & classmates. He said the kids seem nicer than his previous school & not as many troublemakers. He only wished there was more diversity - he notices that - not the school's fault but we are hopeful more diversity happens in the future - more of a community thing on ensuring all feel welcome - which I can say is all i have seen & experienced since we moved here. We are all very happy to be apart of this very generous & giving community! PMS has great teachers that communicate with parent & even online parent portals & edline which helps staying informed about your childs performance - love the school system!
PMS is a fantastic school. My son's teachers meet daily to discuss any student issues, and are always open to parents. As the only middle school in the district, it fully represents the community it serves.
Bravo PMS! The teachers care about student problems, academic and otherwise. They encourage parents to get involved and be present in your childs academic career. I feel safe leaving my daughter in the capable and caring hands of these fine instructors.
This is a very difficult school to transfer into especially as a boy. SOL's are highly stressed. Once in a certain 'track' of classes in junior high, it's very difficult change- all the way through high school.
