    I was only at Hellgate Middle school for one year before I moved but I think the sixth grade teachers are very constuctive. We had loads of fun.

    Both of my kids graduated from Hellgate Middle School and one of them is now a kindergarten teacher and the other one is going to college majoring in engineering. I think that Hellgate Middle school helped to give them a great start in life.

    I enjoyed Hellgate very much. There are many different types of people and all of the teachers are very different. The 8th grade math teacher Mr. Hathaway was very good. Also the spanish teacher Mr. Hamilton is one of the best teachers a ever had. I learned as much spanish in one year of his class as many do in two years of high school spanish.
