DeKalb Middle School Reviews

1 review
My experience at this school was interesting. I met a lot of people and had a great time. Middle school is where I seemed to get into trouble the most. When I say trouble I mean teachers would get onto you about little things such as running through the halls or not being quiet going down the hall, that's what I seemed to get into trouble over. Little things like that was good though because they were just looking out for you. I miss those experiences. This school is unique because of the teachers. They are so wonderful. The way the teach is amazing. Teachers at Dekalb Middle School come up with some pretty awesome teaching methods whether it be with sing to help you remember things or fold-able paper with notes on it. I would choose this school over any other school any day to attend again. I had a great experience there and made a lot of really good friends. I also seemed to understand and learn very well when attending school there. Middle school is very important for the learning process, it's the building blocks for high school and life itself.
