    I just graduated from this school. Class of 2013. I had an amazing 3 years and honestly there is fights. but not 3 every day like STOP exaggerating! >.< .Yes there is drama. Like every school has drama. You won't find a school without drama. Its not the best but not the worst. you have fun in this school though. Some teachers are mean but they have to be hard on the student for them to be good. What I don't like is that the students try to act "big" that's one bad thing. Other than that its OK. YOU WILL FIND FAKE PEOPLE THOUGH! So be careful. CHOOSE YOUR FRIENDS WISLEY! TRY NOT TO BE ANNOYING OR ELSE YOU MOST LIKLEY WILL GET PICKED ON. GOOD LUCK AT THIS SCHOOL! YOU WILL FIND AWSOME FRIENDS THERE THOUGH. I FOUND AMAZING FUNNY FRIENDS SO CAN YOU. LOL bye good luck 6th 7th & 8th graders )

    GOOD THINGS ABOUT KMS The Band Class I honestly think this is the best thing about kms .Other schools may have better bands but your kid will learn how to play a new instrument (wood wind brass or percussion) and go to concerts and learn how to read real music.Im a student this is my second year with KMS band and like I said before our band may not be the best but the music teacher is the best I didn't like the idea of having band at first but that was the class i made more friends MY ONLY FAVORITE CLASS.Same goes for chorus .....And yes they have sports after school too.

    This is the worst school ever!!! some people from the staff are rude and don't know their job or they just don't care. The slogan "no child left behind" for that school is a mere sentence.

    I have just graduated Kissimmee Middle School class of 2009 and those two years that i attended KMS were basicly the best years of my life. My teachers that helped me more than anyothers i have had are Ms. Mulvihill Ms. Melian Ms. Salehi and Mrs. Collwel. Those four teachers have taught me not only math science language arts and social stuidies but also about myself. They helped me learn how to cope with the day to day life that i will be presented with in my future. KMS also had great students. KMS was my home and im goign to miss it.

    Kissimmee Middle School is a great school. Depending on your child there experience will vary. I have honnors classes and these past years have been great. Some students do not know how to control themselves but i feel that is not the problem of the teachers or staff that's the problem of the student and parent. The teachers i have are great. If you expect well out of your kid then this is the school for them. The honnors teachers are supportive and helpful. =]

    This place is the poor excuse for a middle school. I would never allow my child to attend this school. The administration is the worst in the county. Most of the teachers are good. There are a few who act worse then the students. I beg you to find a better oppurtunity for your child.

    Im a student in kms and i think that this school is not that good at all.I thougth that this school would be better but it wasnt .There are too many fights and most of the times the teachers and staffs dont know how to control the students

  • (6 years ago)

    too many fights and the enviroment is so violent need to improve the discipline and academic terrible!!!

    I'm not just saying this because I am a student at the school but it is one of the best schools I have gone to in Florida. The teachers are wonderful and focus on curiculum and provide activities that will keep the students interested inlearning the subject. Since I have been at the school my knowledge of may things has flourished astoundingly. The only thing that needs to be improved is lunch but other than that the school provides a great learning enviorment for the students who attend. If others believe in the opposite of what I had said it is probably due to the fact that they have not experienced the things that this school has to offer.

    The classes are ok is you are in honors if you are not I suggest go to another school. There are to many fights the teachers do not know how to control the students during a fight. The solution for the schools problem is to take away things from the students.Then blame the students when the school gets a low grade for the fcat. I suggest to go to another school.

    KMS offers a wide range of academic programs from gifted classes to mainstream help with basics. The school has a strong focus on reading and is implementing a Positive Behavior System designed to reward and focus attention on students who are doing things right.
