After moving to the town of Scarborough and going to SMS throughout my middleschool career I can say with all my heart that I dreaded school there everyday. The community is just full of rich white kids who can't see a world beyond their $200 UGGs. The school has roughly 800 students but through out my years there I only saw about 40 of them. The school is divided into multiple wings that you stay on for all 3 years. Because of this the school is completely segregated and cut off from each other. The only way that a child could meet someone out of their wing would be if they did sports. If your not very sporty like I was though your out of luck. The cafeteria food is ok basic for what you find now of days. The only issue is that there is a huge unneccesary variety of junk foods such as icecreams and potatoe chips. I remember kids buying both of these everyday. The only thing good about this school was that it made me realize how terrible it can be to grow up in a perfect home. You dont realize how important it is to see the world unless you visit a community such as this one.

I really enjoyed going to this school and the whole environment there is great. I wish I could come back to school there and meet my 6th and 7th grade again.
Scarborough Middle School *might* work for some people but I find their system unsatisfactory. As a student in the top 1% I have found what I feel is practically no flexibility in their curriculum which is completely focused on memorizing facts. While the teachers are very good I feel that the way the school has implemented the new curriculum has only served to detract from my education and as I have practically hit their ceiling while at the same time knowing people who are far ahead of me who have succeeded on only what the school provides I find myself spending countless hours so that I could keep up to par with the rest of the world. Their mandatory specials are boring and end up teaching very little. In fact if I was not in GATES I would see no reason to go here!
Scarborough Middle School provides a beautiful backdrop to a fantastc learning environment. It is broken up into smaller wingsthat give a sene of team and pride in school. The curriculum is challenging and accommodates mny learning styles and abilities.
