    I went to this school 6th grade and part of 7th grade until i moved. Some of the teachers were nice but the others didn't teach as well as they should have and got mad when we failed their class. Also it wasn't that great of a learning environment. The majority of the kids there smoked weed and talked about inappropriate things. In 6th grade i knew girls who engaged in sexual activity. Also kids got in trouble for bringing drugs to school. And lastly there is a lot of bullying. physically emotionally and online.

    Pilot Butte Middle school is a very nice school with some great teachers with great respect for there job. But just like what was said in the other long article I beleive that the problem is the students and it is not sex it is cussing rumors of drug use and some verbal and physical bullying.This schools principal Mr.Michaelson is a nice man who does care for the students educational success.

    It is a very good school with very good teachers however for me as a seventh grader that has been in many other schools i think that they need more extra curricular activities and need to talk to us (students) about behavior more why? well to be honest that one star that is missing is really because of the students I mean most are great many are my best friends. but it seems you can't go one day without hearing less then ten conversations about sex or sexual conversations from the students which to be honest is not just dis-respectful to some people but plain annoying. And the students also won't stop swearing and being complete jerks to other students. A lot of peple smoke as well and nobody seems to care. there are real nice kids there but there should be many many more.

    It is a great school with nice but strict teachers. The principal Ms. Bennet is involved regularly with the students at PBMS.
