John W. McDevitt Middle School Reviews

1 review
Unfortunately, there are complications in parent-teacher communication due to lack of willing to hold conversations to non-English speaking parents. The emotional-psychological spectrum has significantly changed to neglect. (i.e. lack of anti-bullying programs) especially its teachers. If you want to send your child to the most miserable middle school in the district then this is the right place for you.
