    I went to this school last year. The teachers are amazing! I mean I look back and miss how compassionate the teachers were and how many amazing experiences I had here. I'm not gonna lie this school probably isn't the best but it's one of the 'better' middle schools. We're really competitive in sports especially against Garden City and South Middle School (our 'arch-enemy'). If you're moving here this is probably one of the better schools you can go to... but that's not saying much! )
