the only thing that I can say is wow. this is probably the number one worst middle school in the state, and that is truly saying something. mind you this is from a former sixth grader, so I can give you a lot of details. this school lacks many things, and I think that the biggest thing are the academics. the teachers don't care one bit, and they have the mentality of just going to the middle school to get their $30,000 salary. they don't like the students, and are not very helpful. but if you are looking to put your son/daughter into private school, you're out of luck because they start at seventh grade. this school also lacks sports. very bad school
