    ' This school is very advanced for middle school my child loves it and she likes it a lot more than the high school. The kids don't like the cell phone and ipod deal but otherwise its a great school. The teachers understand the kids and try there hardest to help each and every kid. It's not the best but by next year I personally think they will get there act together and It will be a good school. This year was confusing but fun at the same time. I love this school everyone helps.

    this school does not control the students only a few teachers have a grip on the subject they teach to draw in students attention. Disrespect and anger abounds. The teachers who are good are very good- but they are few.. all 5 kids hated it and were not really ready to go on to high school anywhere else but here.
