Saxe Middle School is a friendly, welcoming environment. Yes, there is not much diversity, but how can the school help the kind of kids who go there? I first started Saxe in 2014. Every single teacher and student has been nice. There has been a few snarky comments here and there between some kids, but it is completely and totally not enough for any child to feel threatened or hurt in a way that could make them super self conscious. Besides, that is normal in a school, right? Not everyone is going to be nice and caring all the time. All of the teachers care about the students feelings and behavior and will be concerned of anybody looks unhappy. At lunch time, the kids sit in different groups of friends, sort of like cliques. But, almost every kid is happy with their friends. The ones who are not happy are speaking with the guidance counselors, teachers, and their parental guardians. Most kids are really nice and caring at Saxe, I know I have tried to be.

I love the school. All of these reviews are kids who went there and hate school in general. But I love the school. The teachers are very respectful and the kids are not terrible. I will say the school doesn't have a lot of diversity mainly because a very rich and white town. I am not because raciest but the majority of African Americans sadly are not the most wealthiest. But everyone is very nice and I've learned so much while going there. (And Still There. 7th grade)
The education at Saxe Middle School is preeminent, however the social aspect of it is sub par. Students at the school, as they age, form more and more cliques, making it uncomfortable for those who are not as sociable or new. Students constantly feel like they are pressured into looking a certain way, and others mock those who are different in terms of looks and the status quo. The academic side of the NCPS district is absolutely fantastic, but the social side is lacking, but there honestly isn't much the teachers and faculty can do, given the privileged background of the majority of the students.
