An absolute dumping ground for future (and current) drug dealers, bullies, pimps, prostitutes, ect. My son went there last year and was the worst experience of his life.

I am a parent of a student that attends Ellender Middle School and he will not be returning next school year. The fighting is out of control at this school. I don't know what's the purpose of the JP cop on the outside because for two days straight I saw two fights outside the school.The students are out of control and parents are fighting students.
