The teachers are supportive and amazing. They reach out to the parents about both concerns and positive reports. The school offers many different clubs and after school activities that the teachers volunteer their time to run. Students are happy and rewarded for their positive behavior and academic successes. The administration is fair when dealing with the students. For a tiny school in a tiny county- you can't beat this public school. All teachers are certified and highly qualified (unlike the private schools in the area).

I don''t know who this "Brian" teacher is- as I have been teaching in this school since before this post and do not know of any teachers that have that first name. However, I will say this- Our middle school has greatly improved over the years. It offers students opportunities to to learn and grow in a safe place. Bullying is NOT an issue at our school and our current administration takes this topic VERY SERIOUSLY. Teachers work very hard to provide students with engaging lessons and we have amazing programs to offer.

The bullying problem in this school is terrible kids are getting bullied left and right. I would suggest finding another option for your children this school is unfit for kids to work in. They hardly give you any education there and I'm a teacher and that's saying a lot. They don't do anything about the bullying problem they just let it happen like its nothing.
