I went here for 6th grade. IT'S HORRIBLE. Two teachers at this school were rude and embarrassed me in front of the whole class. I only made 2 real friends at this school. The kids here have no respect for each other. This is supposed to be a bully free school but they need to work on it ALOT MORE. The kids here Cuss and fight. I do NOT recommend taking your child to this school.

My grand kids school is Ransom Middle School. As a grandparent of two kids who are currently going to Ransom we are totally impressed on how the school is operating. The teachers and all staff are doing a great professional job and are appreciated very much.
Great school program for student with handicaps. The bands and sports teams are great. Chorus is a poor program very disorganized and uses volunteers off the street who scream at students and act crazy. Academic teachers are all pretty good some are great.
I transferred my son from a private school to ransom and I have never been happier. So far the teachers are caring guidance counselor are there to answer questions and the PTA is very involved. Because of the support I have received I have not had to deal with the principal.
Oh and the lunches are horrible school lunch...eeeek. Then there is chic fil a and pizza hut. No vegetables!!! Growing kids cant grow without them.
Ransom is an excellent school for students who want to learn and parents who support them. It is easily the top middle school in the district. Of course some students come to school to cause trouble and disrupt the learning environment and some parents are not involved in their children's education and do not want to be bothered. Ransom works hard to turn these populations around and help them but ultimately will not let them interfere with the education of those who want to learn.
Very involved administrative team....feel the love for their students! Provides many clubs programs etc. to keep children active. Teachers very willing to help children acheive great grades and they communicate with parents in a timely manner with any questions concerns praises!! Love their use of technology for posting grades online automated phone calls for important messages email communication etc.
I believe that this school is not th best enviroment for a kid to be taught in. The school a prep school and many children are singled out . There are many cliques . It also is over crowed.
The kids just love the principal and his raps are kinda cool. I love that he backs his teachers/staff it seems so rare these days. However when a teacher is in eror then there needs to be changes made and he does not push for that nor does he encourage free communication between parents and teachers. I'm tired of hearing how the over population is the root of the problems in this school. Bull if a teacher is too stressed by the load then they need to leave the profession or go to a school that would be less demanding of their time/energy. There is a web site for parent/teacher communication and it seems Math & Science are excellent in using them to assist parent involvement but Reading & Language don't bother. Principal says it is not required so no communcation = no parent involvement. How is that beneficial to students?
The teachers yell alot and single out alot of students. Sometimes they call the students names and make them feel bad. And they have alot of favorites. They teach alot of things your never going to use in life mostly in reading.
My kids go to school there and they love it and i do to great schools and teacher!
Rasnsom is a great school thats why it is so 'crowded' as some people say. the new principal is great
I belive Ransom has the potential to be a good school but as a student you don't feel the love and support from some of your teachers as you would like. The deans at Ransom 'act' as if they are really intrested in your childs case but as I can relate I feel like they are only trying to get you out of the school if you are a very out spoken person because they don't want the 'Ransom Reputation' to go down!
Ransom is most likely the best middle school in Escambia County. If you live in the Ransom district consider yourself fortunate. It is overcrowded but the students are kept in line by their Principle Pomeroy and faculty. My son is in the 8th grade and I haven't had any major problems so far and he seems to really like it.
i think ransom is the best middle school there is.. and every student should be lucky they have such a great place to learn
My 3 children attended this school and hated going there. Nobody seems to care enough to make the effort. It drains you. Most of the year they just watched movies unrelated to the lesson. Do not like this school at all.
With Pete Wright as the Asst Principal how can you go wrong this man has been there and done that!
i think that ransom is too crowded and that the student are too caught up with friends fighting and their cliques. the children arent being challenged by the work... some are but some are honestly failing. not a good school in my opinion
It is a great place for kids to learn and it has a great learning enviorment
We love Ransom very nice school great superintendent and principle!
