    I go to this school. There is nothing good about it there are some nice teachers but not many. There is also no motivation for people to do good in school.

    I am a student atending congress. Quite frankly to be honest this school is an exuse of an education center. The nice teachers are few and far between and most of the teachers are crabby. Some people watch the hallways and punish even the slightest sign of happines or individualism. This school has destroyed every last bit of my enthusiasm for learning. It sucedes only at failing at providinf sub-human standards for an education. If you can BY ALL MEANS DO NOT ATTEND CONGRESS MIDDLE SCHOOL!!! It will be the biggest regret of your childs life!

    Our oldest daughter attended this middle school and I can't say that I look forward to my younger children going here as well. The top staff here leave a lot to be desired when it comes to providing a positive learning environment and lack effectiveness in impacting negativity when confronted with it.

    The academic scores from the tests they have are outstanding and the teachers will strive to make the students suceed. Why is the 6th graders seperated from the middle school? What kind of activities do they have? What is the curriculum?There is still alot of whats?

    Awesome teachers. They relate with the students and are there if the students need help. They do anything they can to teach the student. They help you before and after school or whenever needed. They make sure no kid id failing and will help them to suceed.
