Very good. Much more positive than my own middle school experience in the 90s (I hated middle school).

Okay... Average experience here, no more no less. Worse than I expected it to be though. There's nothing else to really say about it since it's like any other school in the area, except... The new gates that they installed to the school for more "safety"... Kinda makes the school look more ugly and less appealing and welcome. Students can still reach their hand in and unlock it from the inside since the gates have a large enough gap in-between, so what's the point of building the gates anyways.

The people are very nice and welcoming, but the way the teachers taught, took time to adjust to.

Excellent school with caring and quality teachers. A great place for our tweens and teens to learn and mature.

After attending this school for three years and graduating an honor student, I can personally not suggest you to send your child to this school. Thanks Kanapaha for making middle school the worst years of my life! I would get bullied by a group of popular boys and the teacher didn't even care. Kanapaha likes to act like it does a lot about bullying but in all honesty, in does not. I favor the eighth grade staff since they do actually take you seriously, but I really didn't see this in sixth and seventh grade. Honestly, most of the problem is how some of their teachers see bullying but blow it off. A lot of racist and homophobic students attend this school-- I should know considering I was severely bullied for my race and sexual orientation from the time I came out. I really liked some teachers but I did not have a good experience in this school although I think it's mostly because of the types of families who reside in the areas the school is zoned for. I've seen so many white popular kids being able to get away with many things that other kids wouldn't have been able to do like this gifted white boy who was close with teachers would make fun of me for my race and they didn't care.
