When I was there, the teachers would teach the minimum that they could and still get paid. They didn't teach try to push their student to the limit. There was only one class that did push their student and it was advance computer by letting them create a 8th grade video slide all by themselves and decide how to do it. The teacher would only there to help when we needed help like teaching us how to video edit and photoshop.

It's unfortunate that this middle school doesn't have a football field.
My overall experience in middle school wasn't the worse or the best but definitely learned new lifestyles and met a bunch of new people.
