This school has come a long way since the last principle left .the new principal is awesome and I was not a believer in a principal making a difference in a school .I always thought it fell on the teachers well a lot of it does fall on the teachers but the principal has a lot to do with it. Its true a principal can make a difference. I'm not sure of the last principles name, he was an African American male but ended up getting in trouble with the law due to problems with his girlfriend. he was absolutely terrible I was not impressed with the school at all .it has been a complete turnaround and I am proud to send my child to the school.I am one of those parents that call the school for any little thing I am very hard to please so me giving this review speaks volumes.my other child attends the art school and I can by far , this school is much better then Marrington middle I understand it is a middle school compared to an intermediate school but my child was selected for Marrington and I'm still more impressed with Sedgefield intermediate. DR. Eddings the principle really has made a difference.my child has attended from 3rd grade and she is now in 5th grade.
