If I could give GMS a lower rating I WOULD!

Gifford Middle School has provided my four children an excellent academic experience over the past 10 years. From the teachers who prepare quality lessons to the band that provides unique team building experiences, Gifford Middle has served my family well.

Gifford Middle School. My son is now finishing 8th grade (I hope) and I will be so glad when he's done. There are some GREAT teachers, but I believe their hands are tied. The problem is in the administration. The bullying problem is paramount to anything else they have there; it needs to be dealt with firmly. It has been a VERY rough year for my son (and I, trying to keep him safe).

Again I used to be a student at gifford middle (6th 7th , 8th and I got held back in 8th grade ) the school changing now , they are putting a buzzer gate up (wow gifford has over 60 security cameras ) and the bullying needs to end ( gifford needs to seriously focus on the bullying ) when I was going to gifford for the 4 years that I went it was insanley bad . That school had so many problems it wasnt even funny, I am very disappointed in GMS (and always will be disappointed in GMS) Don't even get me started on the hands off policy (you couldnt even hold hands with a boyfriend or high five a friend) tell me how stupid is that? And Rebound oh my god rebound is like jail for innocent kids (the teachers dont know how to teach now a days they just give out papers and sit at their desks and grade papers. The teachers are lazy now. My experience at gifford was not an excellent one (the fights are way extreme) , kids belittling others (kids are afraid to go back to school because of how they arw treated by bullies and teachers ) its crazy) the schools have gone completely NUTS , kids will DROP OUT of gifford middle school (dont go to gifford (get your GED) LIKE I AM .

I used to be a student at gifford middle school (I was well known) the locker stealing is a major problem and the if u chew gum in class you will get a detention rule (thats a stupid rule) other things should be top priority than giving detention to the students for chewing gum (and if students want to dye their hair light red and brown and or blonde or black (let them ) that rule is stupid too (like I said other things TOP PRIORITY other than suspending students for dying their hair or not letting them back at school until they cut their dyed hair off) gifford middle needs to have more TOP PRIORITIES (than disciplining students for stupid stuff)
