    this school is not very fit to have a student body and u should never send your children here because the teachers make fun of other students and are very unreasonable and they're no bullying a lie

    I have a daughter in High School who has already gone through this middle school and am looking forward to having my youngest daughter attend There are a lot of great teachers in this school. Tough but fair. Also They participate in National History Day which is an awesome experience I would recommend to everyone. My oldest went to State 3 out of 4 years and made it to National Level 1 year. I think I learned as much as they did. I hated history in school and now I love it!High school has been a lot easier for my eldest due to the wonderful teachers she had the privilege to work with at this level. When she has had problems they have been willing to help her.
