This is my school (Milton Middle School). It's great! The layout of this school, unlike many others, is very easy to remember. Basically, there is an entrance hall with the gym and cafeteria coming off of it and the music hall as well, containing the orchestra, band, choir, and general music classes. Another hallway coming off of the entrance hall is the main hallway, having another three hallways coming off of that: the 6th, 7th, and 8th grade hallways. Each hallway has a bathroom, including the main and entrance. In the 6th, 7th, and 8th grade hallways each have two of the following classes: arithmatic (basic, pre-algebra, etc.), language arts, science, social studies, and reading. Also, along the main hallway, there is a Spanish 1 class for advanced readers who have great reading scores on the WESTEST2 (local standardized test) where the go to Spanish 1 instead of reading, and advanced reading and language arts classes. Along the main hallway, also, are a few special education classes and a TAG class. There are also related arts classes such as FLEX (foreign language exploratory), health, art, oral communications (only middle school in area), and Tech Ed. There's also a library.
The school seems like a good school. My oldest son went there as well, and it seems be a good school
The administration and some of the teachers are more concerned with policies and procedures that have nothing to do with the learning environment than they are with helping the children to achieve their best.This school and others like it in Cabell County are a good example of why West Virginia continues to rank poorly in practically every category related to education, pay, obesity, and other quality of life issues. It is the blind leading the blind.
As a parent, I love this school. Great principal, outstanding teachers-the only thing I don't love is the short class periods and every other day band. Band needs to be every day! The county school board needs to correct this and add another band teacher to all of the middle schools. Cut out some of the electives and give the core classes more time. Other than that, I couldn't be happier with this school.
I don't like the way classes are taught, too many projects and not enough teaching of the basics of the subject. I don't feel like my child is learning alot.
Sure it's had it's bumps, but I get a fantastic education from the home of the Panthers, Milton Middle School.
milton middle was a fun place and i love it i am currently attending MMS as an eighth grader and i would recamend this school for great teachers and staff. Also awsome students!!!!;)
I think Milton Middle is a 5 star school the teacher and staff and even students are greeat!
I attended milton as a student all of my middle school career and absolutely loved it. The teachers are extremely helpful and will help you solve out any dispute or problem that you might have. Yes, there is drama, but who doesnt have drama? There are the good times and the bad, but everyday is worth it
Milton Middle is a fantastic school. I think they can stop the littering on school grounds though.
Great support from the staff when children were being bullyed (about not making the squad) by rich kids selected to be on the cheerleading squad (only connected and/or rich kids make the squad with this coach). Principal put a stop to the hazing immediately. Fine program for accelerated students! no foreign languages instruction, unfortunately. A few gruff teachers, but generally superior instructors overall. Most, but not all sports offer opportunity for talented and novice. A few coaches hand pick team based on parent status rather than student ability/need -- cheerleading especially rigged. School is much-loved by our 3 students.
My son transfered to Milton Middle coming here from a big city,Las Vegas. He really enjoys the small school atmosphere and the teachers seem to do a good job. Good overall
This school rocks. This is my first year there but its better then elementary,they actually treat you like a teenager and they have better teachers that actually understand you.They listen to whatever you have to say.They have the best volleyball team and foot ball team.They have great staff, and they are very nice.
I think Milton Middle School is a very good school. I've had kids there for the last 4 years and 1 will enter this year. The only problem I have is the lack of principal support. I believe since that school has grown throughout the years it needs more help. We had several Asst. Principals since my kids have been there. The job requires more than one person. Alot of work is put on them so there is a big turnover. Maybe if the school had as much help as Barboursville then we wouldn't have such a hard time keeping someone. Mr. Roebuck is a very good and goes by the rules principal. I like that.
We transferred our child to Milton last year and he loves it. We really made a good decision on sending him there
I went there last year. i am sooo glad that i am out. I couldn't tell you how much i hated that school! CMHS is so much better. we actually get treated like the young adults that we are. I milton middle they treated us like little kids!
