6 Parent Reviews for Desoto Middle School

In my opinion, this is one of the worst, if not THE WORST, middle schools in Florida.

The schools is okay..mostly clean..Most teachers seem to be nice and reasonable amount of homework...Only problems are the kids...Many fights and doesn't seem the safest, but thier trying. Ms.Bowman is awesome!
