Hickory Middle School Reviews

1 review
There is a mix of good teachers and bad. I've had teachers who have given me a great foundation at this school, but I've also had teachers who spent half the class ordering Chinese food over the phone. The student to faculty ratio is misleading... HMS has a number of very small special education classes each with multiple teachers, but the rest of the classes have many more students. In fact, my 8th grade science class had 35 students and some kids didn't even have desks. There was a real bullying problem at the school when I left; I really didn't feel that safe there. Honestly, I think most students here would have a decent experience (my sister really enjoyed her middle school time), but if you have a highly gifted student, you might want to look into some of the Virginia Beach Public Schools, a private school, or homeschooling/virtual school.
