Looking for the perfect middle school?! Yes, its hard to find, but we definitely found it! H.B. is a well-rounded, work hard/play hard middle school. My son is in the top classes but does not seem overwhelmed. The teachers/administration make school fun with field trips and extracurricular activities (the play hard comment). The last period of the day is an activity exploratory period which can be Science Olympiad, Math League, computer programing, dodgeball, flag football, movies, origami, etc. The music program (band and chorus) have excellent directors who are truly invested. The sports teams are very good. Math league and Science Olympiad often take home awards. The administration is wonderful, fair, and supportive. I am so happy I choiced my son to H.B. He loves middle school (in 7th grade). I will be hard pressed to find a high school that is just as good!

We moved from Appo schools to Red Clay, and I’m very impressed with this middle school compared to Appo school district middle schools!
Principal B does a great job being a leader and keeping school move forward in a positive and cohesive fashion.
The staff is wonderful. My daughter struggled a little bit with transitioning from elementary to middle school her first year and the staff had made it great for her!
