First Avenue Middle School Reviews

I really enjoy First Avenue Middle School because of the amazing teachers and the quality of instruction; without them, school wouldn't be all it's cracked up to be. Each teacher has their own unique teaching style, which makes each class engaging in its own way. And instead of one elective like other middle schools in the school district, we can choose two (we have a lot more options, too).

I had some amazing teachers at First Avenue Middle School. Our music and theater programs were beyond compare, and I really enjoyed my time there.
