    I am a student here. It is horrible it has too much DRAMA...... I think that they need to enforce something to keep the peace. I can't focus on work because of all the DRAMA. Today two girls got into an arguement.... where was the teacher... IDK. It quickly spreaded around the WHOLE school............ Its okay other than the drama. We are pretty smart. I'm learning a lot. I love all my subjects because the teachers care if you learn or not. This is a wonderful enviorment. I LOVE

    The school my grandaugther goes to seems to keep up with academics. I help her with her homework and am glad to see that she really has to think. My daughter received a call when my grandaughter was not paying attention in class one day and that nipped that in the bud. The teachers seem to want them to succeed.

    Hi I am a student at Heskett Middle School and the school has great classes a wonderful staff and good educating.But all schools are not perfect.. This school is very strict and if you do something wrong you will suffer the consequence and especially dress code you will have to have your shirt tucked in at all times and you have to have a belt on and you can't get away with it because there are two different staff workers almost every day to make sure you have your spirit tucked and have a belt to be dressed for success.But anyways this school has a great helpful staff and I would recommend this to any student going to 7th or 8th grade.

    Heskett Middle School is worthy of earning an above average in my opinion as a parent. Firstly academic wise I feel as though my son is in where he needs to be and the classes are challenging (he is in 3 advanced classes). Most of the teachers and especially the principal Mrs Golden hold the children accountable of their actions and respect is still a priority. My son is quite athletic and I am impressed with their sports programs the coaches definately follow the rules of maintaining their grades in order to play. I wish that Heskett was extended to the 12th grade for I would be more than comfortable continuing his education there. I am a homeowner in Bedford Hts and unfortunately the area is declining with alot of transfers from Cleveland schools etc but kudos to Heskett!
