  • I go to this school. I love this school and the new change between Evans. I miss my oldest school, Cottonwood. But they closed down one year. There are some bullies and fights here, (your average middle school) but the teachers help it out alright. I like the middle school, but I especially like the fact that in some electives, they mix grades. For example, I am in choir, and there is like 4 6th, 15 7th, and like 10 8th in one class. They do a good job though at keeping them seperate. We have 3 main halls. 6th, 7th, and 8th grade halls. Your only reasons to be down those halls, is if your class is down there. This school is good, definetly needs improvements, but overall a good school.
