It is by far the best school ever teachers there are so nice it just makes me feel at home and the rules are reasonable and the school should win a reward for best school ever
My son whent here and he game home with the most excited face he said Dad my report card is not so well but the teacher are letting take home work and grading for the report card I was so happy my boy John really good grades and all because of gulf middle he was able to make it happen
I've been at this school 6-8 and it's terrible the teachers don't teach as good as they should they scream for no reason they serve nasty food nobody deals with fights or bullying so if your a parent or anyone don't bring your child to this school it's horrible
Bullying of students and staff is not enforced appropriatly. Teachers are afraid to disciline unruly students because "the office staff just sends them back to class". Witnessed this first hand! Poor level of parental involvement and music program is next to non- exsistent.
I love thi school I went to this school I hope I go back to that school.
Low parent involvement, very few amount of parental involvement unless in specific teams for sports or in musical extra cirriculars. Musical instruments dented and poor quality, art supplies are poor. Overly used amount of awards throughout the school year.
Review Gulf Middle School. Reviews should be a few sentences in length. Please include any comments on:
- Quality of academic programs, teachers, and facilities
- Availability of music, art, sports and other extracurricular activities
