  • I absolutly loved this school. Eighth grade was the time of my life, people say that high school is is supposed to be the time of your life, but I'd say the Middle School was right along with it. I made the best of friends here, and some I still talk to on a regular basis. This school was more like a unity, you knew everyone, and you were friends with everyone. The teachers were great. My math teacher was the all time best math teacher I could ever have. My entire eighth grade class thoroughly understood algebra, which usually comes as a struggle to most. I am now a Junior in High school and I still find myself saying, Oh, I remember learning this in eighth grade. All in all this school was great, the peers, the staff and the academics was all a good time.
