  • I attended (and Graduated) Pattengill (Junior high), from 1967 thru 1970. I think school is what you make of it. my years there were good, I wrote for the school paper and I enjoyed art class. The teachers when I went there were serious about teaching not just getting a paycheck. I actually miss the place!

  • Pattengill Middle School is a good school to send your child, but there are some problems with it. Something is the staff at the school. They've got some good people and some bad people. Sometimes you question the subs. The school isn't the nicest ever and they might have a couple too many people. The school is nice though. If you want the best education you'd be better sending them to Okemos or Holt but Pattengill has a good education. If you get good grades they give rewards. So remember Pattengill is a good school and you could send your children there.
