    We have a wonderul middle school our principals are very good and really care about the students faculty and staff. I feel our school is very friendly and parents are also welcomed as they enter our building. Our teachers really care about their students in and out of the classroom. Our Guidance department is the best in the system. They are always willing to go the extra mile for the parent and the student. We have a great resource officer that is pro-active in keeping us all safe and free from harm. You could not find a better Middle school in our area to have your children attend.
