    This school shouldn't even have a rating. It is the most ugliest despicable school I have ever been to. I finally left that dump last year and I am currently a freshman in highschool. I hated that place. That place is so.. there is no words to describe that school. Bullying and fights happen every other day and to the point where some kids just never come to school. I have the worst experience that I needed therapy. I never want to to return to Sedway I hate it with all of my being. No one cares about you your education your future. They treat you like garbage. Please parents don't take your kids to Sedway.

    I go to this school and the kids are horrible. There always so-called fights and this place is a dump. The kids are rude and have vulgar language. They do not care about academics or education. They do not act right and are focusing on other things beside school. These other things are not appropriate. They have no respect for the teachers.

    This cool is failing. I thought is was my son but I see that it has graded low in many other aspects. I hope the administrators step in and do something about it.

    This is the most awesome middle school ever! I attended here my 7th and 8th grade year in 05-06 and they were both great years. Mr. Allen is an excellent principal and so are all the other administrators and others that I got to know while working in the office as an aide. Sedway is definetly a great school and I really suggest this school to anyone.
