As a teacher, you will be drained and not supported.

The middle school has gotten so much better since a new group of experienced teachers and the new administration who all have actual degrees and certificates in education joined last year. No longer does the kids get treated like prisoners but are treated like young adolescents. I am so happy to work here and have my niece attend this middle school.

The biggest problem with this school is an administration that cares about data more than they care about students. Data can be skewed. Actual learning can not. Students are performing far below state averages. Children are expected to be near silent throughout the day and withdraw from learning out of frustration.
