    Administrative staff is completely incompetent. They have lost my son's records twice did not enroll him in the correct grade and were EXTREMELY rude to me when trying to resolve these matters. The child's well-being and best interest doesn't even register on their radar. I have NEVER dealt with such disorganized school staff. Teachers don't communicate with parents. Worst school I've ever dealt with.

    i have been going to this great school since i was n 6 th grade and now i am going into the 8 th grade. The teachers at hobbs r great at there jobs they help us students on anything we need

    Hobbs is not given the credit that it deserves. Principal Shell the teachers and staff members are committed to the children. I am glad that my husband & I chose to place our children in HMS. Go Jags!!

    My daughter has thouroghly enjoyed her time at Hobbs. The band program is very nice and the teachers are very attentive to the students needs.

  • (8 years ago)

    I don't think Hobbs is the best school. My son never has homework and for being in Middle School I think he should have homework every day! The front office staff is in lack of control over their area as a lot of kids seem to hang out in that area and they do not check id's enough. There is no parent involvement. There is no thought on the changing of the dress code.

    Basically a safe school but the academic quality is severly lacking. My daughter is not challenged at all and is extremely bored with her classes. Many teachers seem disinterested and uninvolved in the classroom and there is not a lot of communication with the parents.

    Wow could a school get any better. Hobbs is great. I have went there my last 3 years of middle school and absolutly loved. My parents just switched me to a private school and I like but I sure do miss Hobbs. The teachers and staff there are great. Alot of things have changed since the 2002-2003 school year. For example there are no uniforms this year this is an up and down. They are strict on this but sometimes the girls get away with short skirts. But other than that the school is great. They have a great chorus led by the best Choir Teacher ever Mrs. Virgina Mitchell. Keep it up Mrs.Mitchell. The band is really good too. Physical Education is great their aswell. Students are requird to take at least one year of P.E. here. Go Jaguars!

    I have talked to teachers about problems and they have discussed these problems with the class in front of my child. I think this was not right
