This school is a great school and my one of my kids will be graduating next year! The teachers are very nice and teach my two children what they need to know to pass and succeed in life.

I was told by two 7th grade teachers and three 8th grade teachers they are not allowed to teach with any depth, because Mrs. Cornwill just wants good test scores. Also when my son went there we got letters from Mrs. Cornwell saying you folks out here on 218 really have something special. What are we? From another world. The principal comes across nice, but I always had a feeling she thinks she is better than us. My son is at Middleburg High now. He has had to have a tutor to learn things he should have learned in middle school. He had As and Bs in middle school and now I see they just played a bunch of games to learn basic facts but didn't really understand things. Don't send your kid there!
