  • During the middle school years, it's very important to teach kids about accountability, responsibility, honesty, and follow through. It's really hard to do this when the teachers and principal are incompetent. Once a week we get grades emailed to us, but they are rarely ever right. I've grounded my son twice (unknowingly because of his teachers mistakes). Dr. Dukette is the only one worth a damn. Margaret Sordian is NEVER available and not very friendly. The only reason we put our son in this school was because after middle school he will be at Socastee. They do NOT teach tolerance at all. There are drugs in the school and teachers don't help the matter.

    THANK GOD my son is almost out of there!
