Philip Magruder Middle School Reviews

I went to Magruder Middle School for all three years on middle school. I liked the school, I especially liked my engineering club at lunch. We got to make so many cool projects, it was really fun. However, the thing I didn't not like was that we had no sports teams!! I was so into sports and still am, and there were no teams for us to play on, so it kind of sucked! But other than that it was a fun and safe school!

Since I first got there it wasn't the best, my first year there were about 2-3 fights, the food was horrible, people were doing drugs, and the vice principal snoops into everyones business, and is very rude. My second year, people still did drugs, there was 1 fight, the food is still bad, and some teachers were really rude. Now, people still do drugs and some of those kids got caught ditching school to smoke weed, they all got suspensions and only one got expelled since it wasn't one of his first times getting caught, the food is still horrible, the same kids got caught after they had stolen and didn't get expelled even though they were showing it off at school, and my teachers this year are very good.
It was a great diverse campus, full of helpful teachers and faculty. Many opportunities and events to stay involved.
