I move around a lot so I go from school to school, and I have found that it is better than most of the middle schools around. The teachers are amazing, and much better than that of Deltona Middle. They have a great school, and the overall "awesomeness"-for lack of a better term-is beyond any other school I have been to. Not to mention they have great clubs and extra-curricular activities, along with great field trips and such. The teachers are fun, but they still do their job. I admit, I haven't liked all of the teachers I've had there, but that was a select few. Plus, I'm bound to have teachers I don't like as a student. The majority of the teachers there are fun and make learning fun. Sorry to rant like that, but I couldn't resist... Even if it this is all kind of outdated by now.. Especially how the parent reviewed it in 2008 and I'm finding this in 2014.... Oh well. Now you know. :)

Horrible teachers... extremely poor planning of any events. They don't assist students who need help ... expect the parents to speed up the learning of a slow student. Teachers dont respond to parents.
