23 Parent Reviews for Hughes Middle School

The staff at Hughes Middle School has been on disappointment after another. Bullying is handled from the teachers all the way up to the principal with lack of communication with the parents and no follow through. When information is finally provided, it is one sided, incomplete, and/or inaccurate. ...  Read more

I am sort of mixed about this school. There's some pretty helpful and nice teachers, while some are either lazy or absolutely demanding. Sports are really great here though. There's PE classes, sports teams, and time to play on the blacktop. The selection of electives is really high also. So far, I've ...  Read more

Hughes is a very well-rounded school. It boasts excellent academics (GATE and Honors Programs), athletics and various organizations that students may get involved in. The faculty and staff at Hughes M.S. care immensely about the students. We are proud to be past and present Hughes Parents!

this is overall a pretty great school. i enjoyed being in the GATE program. all the teachers are friendly and the campus is very clean. the only problem i have had was the PDA rule. even one simple hug can give you a chance to get suspended. id recomend any child to go to this school

I have been very disappointed in the quality of instruction my child has received in the TAP program. He has had almost no writing instruction in three years. Apparently the program was better in past years, judging from older comments on Great Schools. Recently there has been great turnover in the TAP ...  Read more

Hughes Middle School
Long Beach Unified School District
* In 2011-2012 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
