6 Best Public Middle Schools in Arizona
- Public School
- Phoenix, AZ
Senior: As a senior at BASIS, I can say that while it was academically challenging, I wouldn’t get the education and college advising I did here, anywhere else. The tight-knit community at BASIS fosters a close relationship between students and faculty, which I think is essential to a positive educational experience, conducted by teachers who are invested in every child’s education and success. The senior year capstone curriculum with the third trimester dedicated to a senior research project is a unique opportunity that is basically shaped around learning the self-directed skills you’ll need in college and focusing on your college applications.

Roanoke Catholic School
- Private School
- Roanoke, VA
- PK, K-12
Senior: Roanoke Catholic is a school that teaches students belong the classroom and prepares them for either college. In the past years, 100 percent of Catholic seniors have attended college and this year the seniors have received over 2.5 million in scholarships. I started Roanoke Catholic two years ago and it was a big change coming from public school. In public schools you could slide by without doing your homework, but at Roanoke Catholic all work is required and graded as a test grade. Roanoke Catholic does not let you fall through the cracks. I also must say the food is outstanding!!
One thing I really did not like were the uniforms. In public school you basically wore what you want, but not in private school. My first year the gentlemen had to wear a shirt and tie during the winter and in the summer a polo shirt with the school’s logo and khaki pants or shorts. This year they changed the dress code to where gentlemen could wear the polo shirt and khaki pants all year around.

- Scottsdale Unified School District, AZ
Alum: I liked how the school got everyone involved. We had good teachers and kind students. When I attended the school was being rebuilt and transformed into a beautiful campus. You get to be involved in the school in so many ways. We had people who were in band, choir, art, sports, editing/ photoshop, and so much more. Overall it was a relatively good middle school.
