    I attended Patrick Henry over 15 years ago and I'm still processing the bullying I endured there. As an adult I can't help but be angry at the teachers and administrators who told me or my parents that I needed to learn to deal with it or that "boys will be boys." (I was a girl bullied by boys.) Some teachers were wonderful and made sure my tormentors had no opportunity to bully me in their classes but ultimately the administration did nothing. I was miserable. I truly hope things have changed now.

    I went here when I was younger. I'm now 18 but I think it was a great school. It helps prepare kids for high school. I still use most of what I learned there.

    I like how the teachers are really nice to me. Also I like how they help me if I do not get something. But my favorite part is all of the sports music and etc. I get to be part of as a 7th grader here. This is a good school and I think that everybody who comes here and walks out of it will feel that we are proud to be the Patrick Henry Panthers. Teachers Parents and even Students show that they like going here and I love going here myself.

    PHMS and SFSD has been wonderful for our sons; one a severe autistic(non-verbal) and the other a regular/honors student. I can only think of a couple of times when everything wasn't exactly as it could/should have been. But when brought to the teacher administrator or principal's attention everything was corrected. The CARING about our children's education well-being and lives on and off campus only endears us to this community all the more. Middle school are usually places where the 'rough growing years' play out. PHMS has done a fantastic job at practically eliminating that. Good speech/asst.tech/and O.T. personnel/programs; they go the extra mile explain details clearly make themselves available whenever we have questions. Really proud of how great our non-verbal son was treated and spoken to by students and staff this year. The Extra Curricular programs including ALL students is fantastic!
