    i for one love this school if i did not have pcms i wouldnt have been pushed to my full potential i have learned disipline courage and to stand up what i believe in.

    Princeton as a community is very nice for families but PCMS has problems with 'Bullying'. The School says it will not tollerate it but in fact it looks the other way. My son has ulcers due to this problem. He is unable to take Physical Education due to problems in this area. Also teachers never see anything such as personal property destruction.

    Princeton Community Middle School is a safe envioroment but a little to strict and that's not fun. I think there definitly needs to be more activities involved. PCMS is a very boring and poor school in athletics and in education.
