Teachers could be better and nicer. Also needs to be more clean. And less classes.

This middle school has many quality teachers and extra activities. They also reward students in various ways. Even though not a lot parent involvement in that area, as a parent would like to say that the school has a great and positive leader. The principal really strives for excellence at his school and cares about the students.
