Awful. I wish the district offered other options for the middle school. There is not one parent that I have spoken to that is pleased with the school. It's unfortunate because the Combs Middle School was so great and then to transition to this is a great disservice to the students.

This school is not that great in any way. The arts programs are put far below athletics, students don't try, nor do they do well academically. I rated this school average, though, because of those few teachers that make your day, the few great people at that school, because if you try and you have a basic understanding of how to act appropriately, you can and will succeed.

HORRIBLE! I have spoken with all the staff the principal and the dean they talk a good game and never follow through they don’t really care about the students they’re just there to be there don’t send your student school there if you want an education

Notice all bad reviews are old. I am so glad my kids did not experience that. I can't begin to tell you how sad I am that my kids graduated out of middle school... Last year was one of the best years. Mrs. Ridge stepped up and took charge. She looks out for the students. I did not like Mark he was mean to the students especially ones with disabilities so thank goodness he is gone... Ridge however took these kids under her mama wing and is changing the school! I am so excited she is Principal this year and I know she will do GREAT things with these students! I am already seeing this with neighborhood kids and the amazing stories they tell. She really has a way with those kids! I know she will see to it that all the less fortunate kids are included in all activities and treated fairly! We had a few hiccups in the beginning last year but she resolved them for us. I have learned as a mom and special education advocate this is rare. THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART MRS. RIDGE for showing me what GREAT educators look like!! GO COUGARS!!! I MISS YOU GUYS!!! luckily I found this page after Mark left cause I would have rated it 0. Only because if Mrs. Ridge wasn't there to deal with any issues at the school he was horrible. He did not have people skills. BUT this year and with the staff and great teachers and administration I am beyond excited for my next child to move up!

Both my girls have enjoyed their experience there. They were both in honors classes which I think helped their experience. They were both prepared to move on to high school and enroll in honors and AP classes. My son will be starting there next year. I think the new principal, Mrs. Ridge will bring a lot of energy and excitement to the campus.
