My first year at Sterling Middle was a bit rough around the edges. I credit part of that to my own transition and mindset, and the other part to my peers. The school itself had nothing to do with it. The people working in the school were encouraging and enthusiastic about their jobs. The school is well run, and my other two years of school were awesome. I loved it so much that I am now acting as a Teacher Cadet for one of the teachers there.

I am learning a lot in this school. Great Teachers. Many clubs and activities to do there. Counselors are very helpful. Not a lot of diversity, but it's a great school. 8.5 out of 10.
The teachers are approachable and knowledgeable, but they don't genuinely care about the students and aren't very available.
