    My family has experience with other schools in the district and just happened to move within the Preston boundaries. This is the first school I have been excited about in terms of preparing my child for the future. From innovative classroom strategies such as flipped classrooms to video gaming and Lego robotics Preston is preparing students to be successful leaders. Preston is an outstanding school.

    I have had 2 chidren attend this school and I have also subbed at other schools in the district. This school by far is the best all around school choice. The kids are more prepared for high school. especially in math and science then the kids at the alternative middle school. I would challenge a parent to talk to the high school and see which schools better prepare the kids for the future.

    Very unimpressed-I regret going to preston. I do not feel very secure and safe at preston. Some of the teachers are ok. I felt that i wasnt very academically challenged and I didnt feel like i learned much. The Science program impeticular isnt very challenging. I thought it was supposed to be a STEM school but i didnt see any difference from any other school. I am not happy with Preston

    I have worked at 5 schools in my career and Preston ranks lowest. The principal and vice principal are both very weak leaders. They are motivated by the amount of money a parent makes and the rich kids get away with everything. There is a lot of bullying and it is accepted by the principals. There are very rich and enabled students there who are lacking love and discipline at home. I would look elsewhere for a school

    We think Preston is a great school! Our son attends there and the teachers are very good at individually challenging each student according to their learning abilities. The band program is excellent as well!

    At Preston bullies never get punished even repeat offenders so there is a significant problem. Several victims have spoken out but all that happens is that the counselors talk with the victims. The bullies are left alone to do as they please.

    Preston Jr. High is a wonderful school for any child to get the start of their education. We moved here from Buffalo NY 3 years ago and I would of never found a school as dedicated to the students as this one. The teachers staff and parent involvment is out of this world! My daughter had a problem going to a new school and the counselors and teachers invited her right in. Sports and activites that the children can be involved in are fantastic. Everyone will have a great experience as we have!

    I think that Preston is a wonderful school. My family ust moved here and my daughter is loving it. She is getting challenged she is doing tons of extracurricular activities and I am always up-to-date on what is going on at school. Im very pleased with Preston. I was shocked at the freedom and choices the kids had.
