The teachers were rude and unhelpful, I learned absolutely nothing, and in all my years of transitioning from school to school, this one was the worst.

Overall, this has the been one of the toughest years to date for my son and that is largely due to one teacher at this school. Unfortunately, it is core curriculum. I hope this experience wasn't the norm but it was normal for the whole school year for us.

Office staff unprofessional and do not greet parents when you approach the office, teachers are never smiling, The 6 graderd don't each lunch until after 1:30 And the cafeteria staff is horrible the fees the kids the bare minimum and kid tells me it's not good and they always run out of stuff. I absolutely hate this school, I don't even see how teachers continue to work here guess the and conditions don't bother them as long as they can get their check.

I'm pretty sure teachers and administrators are leaving fictitious 5-star reviews. This school is horrible. Most of the teachers seem burnt-out and extremely irritated. The principal doesn't bother to acknowledge new parents or students, even when your try to connect. There are so many kids sent out of class that they're just roaming the halls. The classrooms are LOUD and distracting. It seems like they just give all of the work to do at home, and nothing is taught during the day. It's really weird and it makes me so sad for the students who can't just pick up and go to another school.

North Garner Middle School is a terrible school. The principal does nothing to help with the safety concerns parents have. People go in and out of the school without anyone making them sign in at the office. Students leave the school cutting through the staff parking lot and crossing the Street because their parents don't want to wait in carpool. The principal does nothing to stop this dangerous problem. My child had a math teacher that Is a bully. When the sixth graders ask questions she tells them they should know that already. She takes pleasure in embarrassing students. She does not post any grades on power school or answer emails. The principal does nothing about her. She does not send interims home on time or sometimes not at all. When I brought this to Mr. Butler's attention nothing was done about it. This has been the worst year! This is a horrible school with a few good teachers. My child's ELA and Social Studies teachers were excellent. Her Spanish teacher was also great. The principal needs to do his job!!!!! My child will not be returning next year!
