    I am an 8th grader aswell and i love this school. I haven't seen any bullying or fights. I was away from the school for a couple of years because my father is in the military I came back and everyone still knows me and accepted me quickly. The teachers do more than just their jobs and parents are pretty involved.. This school is great!

    As an 8th Grader I have enjoyed a majority of Middle School and there are many activies that get the students involved in their school. Contests fundraisers pep rallies... they all are tiny threads that form the quilt of Middle School. Tie in helpful staff and friendly peers and you've got an 'Excellent' rating. However there are some faults that should be improved. The choice on what school programs (such as Art Music and Gym) should be recommended but not required to participate in -- and although they are quite fun -- they won't be pleasant for those who are not interested in them. Bullying is yet another issue that should be controlled. The school sets its self as a 'non-bullying zone' but students should be wary of aquiring offensive language and attitudes that might affect their personality and their overall grades. *Coughes*
