This schools disciplinary system is very low. If your student gets into a fight, they will get accused of 'taunting the bully' or the school will say ' you're getting in trouble because you fought back'. Next up are the teachers. Some of them are student favorites, others...well, not so much. Others (no names being used) are supposed to teach you, but instead sit around. Or, they try to teach the class, instead of helping some students who need individual help. Then, the students. Which in my opinion are the worst part. Some try their hardest to learn and get through with amazing grades, whilst others do not care, and disrupt the entire class while the teachers do nothing to change their ways. So over all, this school is pretty bad.

We are new to the area but so far, PGMS has been terrific! The guidance counselors worked with us to ensure my 2 children were in the appropriate classes. Since we are from the north, the boys are ahead of the norm and were placed in advanced classes. The teachers are wonderful about keeping the students challenged and engaged. They are very open with communicating with parents and stay on top of any potential issues. The guidance dept has worked extensively with me to ensure my child's 504 has been updated and carried out, even suggesting new ideas as well. I cannot say enough good things about this school. The only "drawback" if you will, which would be present at any school, us that there are a number of rude, obnoxious kids just looking to start trouble and I think some if the teachers turn a blind eye to it, saying "kids will be kids".

To be honest, I did not like this school at all. In my opinion it's getting worse every year. The school has a nice campus, but the staff isn't the best. I was put in mostly regular classes even though at my previous school I was in all honors (not the best guidance counselors). It was frustrating because I felt like the teachers only liked the gifted students and could care less about the students that were labeled "regular/mainstream/average".
