School Reviews

The acedemic programs in this school are fantastic. I would go back there any time. During 6th grade, exploritory really helped me to get the hang of some of the different electives to choose from. Gym was great to. It had alot of fun activities and really helped me improove my althletic skills. The restroom facilities were very neat and clean. The custodians did a good job on that. Every day, it was clean again. PALS parents helped along with just parents in general helped out alot.--Paige Reed (11, 6th Grade) Schimelpfenig Middle School
