    6th grade was terrible I suggest not going to this school. teachers don't care and students get away with bad behavior they don't seem to care if they get in trouble. too much bullying has occurred here and I was one that was being bullied once.

    im in 6th grade the teachers are good though very strict on 6b and the kids are soo mean and they bully me every single day so I'm not going to attend to hnms for 7th grade and if your in choir the make fun of the way you sing and they talk about you be hide your back. they make fun of your lunchbox too the kids are so f*** mean so if i was you i would not send your child to this solo its the worst school I've ever been to in my life.

    Pretty good school. My son is in 7th grade and enjoys attending North Middle. Teachers have great communication in regards to students' academics and progress. The school has plenty of programs and extra curriculur activities.

    I'm a A student now their is a lot of problems with the school but defiantly not with the teachers or just the school the problems are mostly with SOME kids who's parents don't care the school is top of the line if only like Maybe 47%of the kids weren't there this school would be the best school in Saint Louis an we don't have a lot of fight there has only been two in the past year. An there are a lot of kids who aren't black an they don't get made fun of ... Let's Go Panthers...

    My white daughter attended Nth Middle for 6th grade and the beginning of 7th until we moved. She had all A's the teachers and staff were great and well educated. The students have all the bells and whistles of a new school-smartboards-tv's high tech. Too many kids don't care the parents don't care. My white child-yes white was scared on the bus- I can't count the times the bus went back to school because of a fight/arguement or too many "F" words being yelled out. Girls yes girls fought bad enough to have the lady security guard be involved and also get hit. Its sad the school building is top rate- the teachers are excellent- the parents do NOT support the staff- Don't take the childs phone away in class and expect them to come retrieve it- and go out of THEIR way..My daughter liked the teachers more than the students..I'm sorry for the ones that actual want to get an education and are left there to have to deal with the unbelievably large amount of idiots who have no intention of behaving or learning. So glad we got out of there when we did.

    So far I am very pleased with my childrens experience there. Teachers are very nice and they are very good at communicating with the parents. I am looking forward to this up coming shcool year.

    I went to north middle when it was first opened which was the year 2007-2008.I was a student(7th grade). And from my point of veiw the staff and everyone did a real good job.Many of the teachers started clubs and after school activities. I look in my year book and i'm in there 5-6 times.So if you decide to have your child attend north middle your making a goog decision. Oh yeah I passed with straight A's (all year 'round).
