I simply don't like the way this school is run. The principal does not listen to parents. She was wrong about a time for an event and went ahead and gave out the wrong info to all the parents. She doesn't allow parents to eat with their child. The elementary schools and high school in this county does allow it. I like to eat with my child to get to know her friends. She made it sound like, that at this age, they are embarrassed of their parents, that's the experience she had. My child is not embarrassed by me. They don't send papers home like the lunch menu. My child said that only she and 3 others don't cuss on the bus. My only other choice would be to home school.

MY CHILD ABSOLUTELY LOVES THIS SCHOOL, IS THRIVING IN THE ENVIRONMENT, AND IS MAKING STRAIGHT A's. THE TEACHERS ARE CARING, HELPFUL, YET QUITE DEMANDING. THE STUDENTS TEND TO BE VERY SUPPORTIVE OF EACH OTHER. JUST AS WITH MOST SCHOOLS, IF A STUDENT IS WELL-BEHAVED, RESPECTFUL, SAYS, "PLEASE" & "THANK YOU," AND IS ATTENTIVE IN CLASS --THEY GENERALLY DO WELL. VERY NICE STUDENTS IN THIS SCHOOL. MR. TURNER IS A GREAT SCHOOL COUNSELOR AND PROVIDES HELPFUL GUIDANCE TO PARENTS AND STUDENTS. THE SECRETARY AT THE FRONT DESK IS NOT ALWAYS TACTFUL, BUT SHE CAN MUTLI-TASK. THE SCHOOL OFFERS MANY FIELD TRIPS AND OPPORTUNITIES FOR PARENTAL INVOLVEMENT. MY ONLY REAL COMPLAINT IS THAT I THINK THEY SHOULD MOVE TO REDUCE/ELIMINATE HOMEWORK. WE ARE A LARGE COUNTY WITH ONLY ONE MIDDLE SCHOOL. THE KIDS ARE GONE FROM 6:30-4:30 (INCLUDING BUS RIDE) AND WHAT LITTLE TIME IS LEFT WHEN THEY GET HOME, IS NEEDED FOR DINNER, SHOWER, CHORES, ANY EXTRACURRICULAR ACTIVITIES AND SOME CRITICALLY IMPORTANT FAMILY TIME.

As a parent I'm very disappointed with this school. My 7th grader has yet to have a text book to study at home. Being out of school for nearly twenty years I cannot remember the things I learned in 7th grade science. It is very difficult to help from home. A teacher at the school informed me that no textbooks had been purchased in years because the superintendent doesn't like them. She also pointed out a nearby school that's considering not using text books. But that school is wanting to switch to tablets, not just drop books with no other tool to replace them. At least they don't have one administrator they had last year, who referred to himself in third person! I still can't believe a school system tolerated that. I agree with the other parent who felt some of the adults have a bully type approach. On another sour note, kids in my area catch a bus before 6:30am, and arrive at school fifty minutes before class. I'm sorry to say there isn't really anything I like about the school. My child now hates going.

From a concerned parent's point of view, this school is seriously undisciplined. The administration is inconsistent and bullying of the students. Adults teaching children should not have issues from their own shortscomings.
