  • i hope the teacher don't belittle a kid in front of the whole class if this is true the teacher should be dismissed. I have heard too many bad things about the staff.

  • Pershing is a great middle school administered by fine professionals. The principal is exceptional as is the admin staff. Teachers are fun, but tough. Class sizes are a bit large, but well monitored. The school building itself has just been improved and is looking good. Pershing is in need of a larger gymnasium, but other then that, it is a great school. I have sent 3 kids through and they have all excelled and loved the experience, both academically and socially.
