    The whole school district is under constant review for beyond low test scores in all subject areas the administration is a joke that's why you see so many out of state teachers in the district. They can't hire in-state teachers because no one applies to them. Turnover rate is extremely high and there is no consistent discipline for students so students who need to be disciplined don't get it and students who don't get suspended because of the favoritism. If I was a parent I would NEVER allow my child to go to this school not because of the teachers but because of the poor management of the whole district.

    This school has some of the most dedicated teachers I've ever known. They work long hours to prepare their students for life beyond school.

    This is a great school I have 2 6th grade boys this year. One is struggling but the teachers have been very helpful in trying to keep him afloat. The Principal and Assistant Principal seem to have a genuine interest vested in our kids which is greatly appreciated!

    Middle school is a rough time for any kid but Kearney Middle School has a great staff that truly help kids transition through new experiences.

    Ms. Bortner Ms. Garcia Mr.Pearlman are just a few of the teachers that have gone above and beyond with the children in my family. Even after they continuated they could still come to them for support. They do their best to make learning fun and they involve the entire family at parent conferences. Each of my children have learned to have pride in themselves due to these teachers and a previous teacher that retired-Ms. Coker. As my children grew too old for the after school programs my eldest child was asked to help which gave her volunteer time for college. And her younger siblings were given the same respect. My son has gone through challenges and Ms. Bortner has been here for him still as a senior in High school helping him after school to prepare for college. I love the home town feeling-We are a community a village.
