Seems to be rather disorganized especially the front office. My child loved going to Windsor before attending here last Fall & now no longer enjoys school. I asked her yesterday what did she like best about school this week and she said nothing. There appears to be no accountability and a general lack of awareness in the administration of this school. Whenever I have gone into the school office area I end up waiting for the office staff to quit socializing and then are treated with a what do you want attitude . Other parents have indicated the same. Drop payments off in the office for a sales contest and the teachers indicated it was never turned in and the office staff later indicate they have no record of it. Thus my child doesn't qualify for any awards but yet the check clears fine. Overall experience the first year is that it is poorly run and lacks leadership. There is no transition from elementary to middle school. My experience with one teacher during the first day of school open house was her handing some papers for everyone to read with their child and her texting on her cellphone until it was time to go to the next classroom. Red flags all around.

I went to this school for two years and saying that I 'loved it' would be an understatement. By far, its most shining quality is its staff. The teachers and administrators are extremely helpful and truly care for their students. DeForest Area Middle School feels less like a school, and more like a family with its extraordinary teachers, and a close-knit student body. I would highly recommend this school to anyone who has the wonderful opportunity to attend it.
