    Valdosta Middle was okay. The teachers I had were great. They were definatley not lazy and really tried to give me a quality education. The teachers and staff were really connected with the students. I really noticed this because I was new. The students there were crazy sometimes. When I first got there there were like 8 fights in a two week period. Sometimes there were girls fighting boys and vise versa. I do think discipline there can be strengthened.

    VMS is the best school that I can think of that offers each student a chance to learn and not just to cover the standards. Last year i was in seventh grade and my teachers were a huge help wiht balancing out my gifted courses and regualr classes and i honestly can say the i improved in each and every subject inlcuding my hardest math. I mean I went from a C to A by the end of the school year. Overall i feel i am an acomplished student and that eighth grade won't be much harder to conquer. I recommend this school to any one who will listen to me and read my review! VMS is the Best!
