This is one of the best schools in the state of Georgia, and the U.S. The teachers truly care about each individual student, and the students enjoy going to this school. (Which is remarkable since it is a middle school). It has a very diverse student body, and the teachers are top-notch highly skilled educators. Seeing as though, the district is just outside of Clarke County and the University of Georgia, the teachers, students, and staff are very professional and looking for new ways to engage the students of the twenty-first century.
