Shields Middle School Reviews

1 review
I am a current 8th grader at this school who will soon be graduating and have been in the Shields community ever since kindergarten. I have had a amazing experience in Shields and wouldn't want to change it at all! I'm really going to miss it here and I'll definitely be visiting.

Pros:

*The building is big and looks very nice, the outside looks lovely too!

*Some of the food is actually not that bad and good enough to eat.

*The teachers really do care about their students and it's easy to build a bond with adults in the building.

*The school feels safe.

*There's many clubs and programs to join, from sports to arts.

Cons:

*Out of everything, the biggest con is probably the students. While many are friendly, there's also many rotten apples. A lot of drama, teasing and even fights happen often in school and many students show rudeness to teachers.
