    I'd like to thank the 7th grade teachers and guidance counsellores for all your wonderful extra attention to my grandson Brandon Friedman. I understand his grades have improved substantially as has his attitude. The 7th grade is particulary difficult as kids are starting to become teenagers (hormones running wild). As a team - Brandon's teachers and all the others who joined the team - you were highly effective. This tells me that Applegarh Middle School is the right place to be on all counts.

    My son is on Senators a looping team he is in 8th grade. He really likes it everyone seems like a family there. The school is safe and everyone gets along. The worst thing I heard was a text going around that was going to be a food fight the last week of school. It was accomplished and 10 kids were suspended. But if that's as bad as it gets I'm ok with that. My son is an honor roll student and gets along with everyone. He did have a few complaints in the beginning about a certain language arts teacher and he wanted to switch teachers. I told him to stick it out because through life we meet all kinds of people like or dislike we have to sometimes deal with them and running away would not solve anything. She warmed up a little and he is ok.

    I found this school quite small... The issue of overcrowding in absolutly a problem in all schools. Otherwise quality of the appearence staff and PTO are wonderful. I adore the fundraising opportunities and the fact they all go to charity. Sports and physical fitness are weaved into most class lessons and I find it a all-around good school.

    Good School. Great Staff. Good after school activities and sports. The building is somewhat older but it's whats inside that counts.
