    The demographics of this area have been changing and unfortuately it is negatively impacting the school scores..There are some excellent caring teachers in this school.

    There is such a big transition going from elementary school to junior high. I don't know who was more nervous my son or me and his father. So far everything is going great. He thinks all his teachers are great and really seems to enjoy school. What more can you ask for.

    I go to this school and quite frankly I love it! Sure the teachers can be very strict they are just doing their jobs and may have a creative way of teaching. I had a teacher here that was loud and had a very harsh sense of humor. Her words never offended us though. I will never forget any of the lessons in that class because of the way she taught it. Middle school kids are a big burden on them trust me. I have read some of the horrible review this school got and I don't agree with them. The parents can think what they want to think but us kids should have an opinion too. Through this review I am not trying to get extra credit in class I just want everyone to know this is a great school.

    This school had a horribile change on my kids personality. The teachers were constantly yelling for nothing that happened. This school i would HIGHLY not recommend.
