    John Dalton Middle school is a very good place to go to school. The kids are very friendly and overall the rules are enforced. Not too many discipline problems. The math program is very strong but 8th grade science is not very challenging or interesting. The PE program is virtually non-existant. If these two areas were improved the school would be much better.

    Radford school systems are amazing. My son is in 7th grade. Every teacher is very dedicated to making every individual do the best they can. It has a great atmosphere and it seems as though my boy comes home happier every day.
