    I have heard many good things about this school in particular. The principal makes the school atmosphere positive for the students parents and staff. When you enter you can feel the positive energy.

    I attended Nettle for 6th grade and I can tell you the truth that Nettle is an amazing school! I wish I could've stayed there for all 3 years but while I was there I had the best school experience of my life there! Yes there was drama but that happens at every school. The students were great and i made a lot of great friends there that I am still friends with now. I am so thankful to the school and its academics and other things that they were what they were because this school has changed my lfe and I will never forget it! BEST SCHOOL EVER!<3

    I was in Nettle for 2 years. The students were good .Nothing ever went wrong.I know moved to Readind PA and I wish I could move back to Massachussetts just to attend Nettle. The teachers are great the principal fantastic and the vice pricipal Ms.Sada needs to work on her attitude.But overall Dr.Paul Nettle Middle School was the best school for me and it can be for your child to!

    I have been going to Nettle Middle for 2 years now am I am currently in 8th grade. The only grade that I have not found satisfactory was 7th grade but that is just my perspective and could be a completely different experience for your kid. The principal is great. The teachers are good and you are challenged to your level.
