The school gets a lot of disrespect, it's just like other schools. Yes, there are some bad teachers and students, but literally every school has those. I don't understand why people don't like it so much, and why people think this is a bad school.

I go to Crawford middle school and it is the best school the teachers care about the students as if they are there own children Kids have the freedom to be kids the same time they are learning Kids get a lot of opportunities to decide on What they want to be and do in life The teachers Try there best to get a child to take there education seriously The principal. Also tries his best to make sure he has his school under controll Kids treat each other like family Although the Kids don't have enough electives to choose from and many Kids don't like the dress code, Kids are highly educated with the best teachers a child could ask for I for one personally feel like Crawford middle school is not only a school but a place different Kids from all around the world can come together and be a big Happy family. Crawford middle school is a school any child would love to go to

The teachers are not helpful with the students that are falling behind especially the 8th grade language arts teaher. There is not enough elective classes for students to choose from, the school has not come up to par, because substitues don't even want to sub there because of the behavior of the kids. Mike Jones needs to be stricter than he is to get the school back in higher standings, for people to want to put their students in this school.
