    The teachers at Logan Middle School are wonderful. I have a child in the 7th grade special education program. He has received a great education thanks to the great teachers on the 7th grade team! Mr. Allen and the rest of the Logan staff are truly educational leaders who have the needs of the students first. My son had a rough start in 6th grade but it has been a pleasure to send him off each and every day of this school year... Thank You Kim
