Very happy with the school, my two boys are doing well. This is our second year in the school and all the teachers that they had or have are great. The PTSA is working hard to do extra activities for the kids and the staff, all my respect to the members of the PTSA board that donate their time to make the school better. I only have good comments about the staff, I had a couple of issues with my boys and they were handled fast and well.

My opinion of this school is very low. This school is overcrowded and a child that has learning differences and relies on his IEP being followed will get left behind and forgotten. His grades are dropping and I feel like there is no help or intervention from this school. Driftwood Middle is leaving my child behind.I have met with the ESE team more than once and all they tell me is his IEP is not due to be reviewed until March. This happened September and October meanwhile he is having difficulties that are being addressed. This school put a child with a specific math learning disability in advanced math...... I mean really??? His IEP is not being followed in other classes as well. His grades are dropping and I feel like there is no help or intervention from this school.

My brother goes to this school and I am just now getting there and he said the teachers and staff do work hard and can be a little frustrating but most of the problems he has had is with the students. He is in 8th grade now and I am in 6th and by telling me tips I'm thinking of this school as an OK school so far.
