    Let's pray this new principal will continue to improve the reputation of this school. There are some qualified hardworking teachers here but there are deadbeats as well. Let's raise the standards folks and prepare these kids for the future. Principal hold your teachers accountable. Teachers Let's not hand out A's like candy. This school needs to award true academic achievment and not concentrate so much on sports or the "popular" kids. Middle schoolers CAN think it's cool to be smart - it just takes the right people to promote this idea.

    I would like to know what the deal is with mandatory barcoding of our kids !!!!! This is absurd and MY children will NOT be allowed to take part in such nonsense!! Ridiculous and unconstitutional!!!! Just wait until this hits national news sources.....hey liberals at least it will take the spotlight off of illegal immigration in our state.

    I'm completely frustrated with this school. The principal is very weak the discipline is unfair the trouble makers and bullies are popular and academics is definitely not emphasized or rewarded. As a parent you have to follow up on edline constantly. My son complains there is no discipline too much cussing teachers are unfair and the cafeteria line is too long. This school needs strong leadership and more emphasis on academics. Uniforms would make all the difference!

    I believe as a student that this school needs more control. Also better food that is not so fatty and less calories. Also I suggest no preservatives and no Monosodium Glutamate. That stuff is pretty bad for you. Also the Vice-Principal is doing a great job. Though the principal could use a little work.

    This is a school in a constant state of flux. The teachers used to run the school and the old principal. A new principal was brought in and a group of teachers spend more time trying to get him than they do improving programs. Most of these teachers have left or retired and the staff is younger and more positive and professional. Look for a principal change soon. The current man is sick of dealing with troublemakers. It took someone like him to break the teacher's monopoly. There is a great new assistant principal and a very good counselor. Sixth and seventh grade teachers are good. A new alternative program looks to be very good. Eighth grade teachers are more lethargic. Watch out for sarcastic English teacher who likes to bust kids. Also watch the school district. The board is into micro-management and the superintendent is set to leave soon.

    This school has several problems including a principal who is unresponsive to parents and an assistant principal who screams at the kids and can be heard all over the school office and counseling department when he is doing so. Very Professional. Many of the teachers left last year. There are a lot of new young teachers so there is not much experience but perhaps more enthusiasm.
