I am totally dissatisfied with this middle school. This is the only public middle school in the Natchez-Adams County school district and it has failed my son miserably. Plus the school is on the failing list for the state of MS. Before attending this school, my son was an honor roll student. He has attended one semester at this school and his grades has dropped. The teachers don't care. Even though you leave your contact information with them, they will NOT follow up with you if your child is in any danger of failing. I have taken my son out of this school because if I didn't I would fail him as a parent. I really feel sorry for the kids that do not have a choice but to attend there. Thank God my son had another option.
