  • This school is very amazing. I'm going to miss it a lot. The teachers here are awsome and do their best to teach us with what we have. I think all of our programs are very strong. Principal is very nice. Vice principal needs to lighten up a little. Homework is not a problem. People say teachers give too much but they don't...some students do not use their time wisley in class. If anything some teachers could be more strict. There is a group of students in 8th grade who need to be told that they need to treat people better. Our sports teams are very good..at least most of them. Track, Cross Country, and Volleyball are all very good. 7th grade basketball is pretty good. 8th grade boys basketball are horrible! They haven't won a single game in their middle school careers! Football is ok. We usually go around 2-3 or 3-2 each year.

  • This school (where I'm sitting right now) is decent. The principal and vice principal are very nice. The school is with out a good reading program. The math and science departments have won newmerus awards. As you can see the spelling here is not that strong ether. Most teachers are vary caring, however the eighth grade teachers are...whats the word...they do there best to liven classes up but usaly offend some people. The track teams are very competitive along with volleyball. The foot ball team is horrible! There are many clubs to join. They are currently debating building a new school, do to the number of children. 6th grade home work is alittle to much, or at leased mine was. 7th grade (depending on teachers) are highly to much! The teachers are very pushy to make highter grades. The 8th grade homework is very light.
