Read what parents are saying about Crayton Middle School
The information shared from the school to the parents is terrible. I am a parent that actively seeks out information too, but there is nothing on the website, nothing on facebook, the pto website is down. I can't even seem to find a straight answer online about how to get my son registered to ride the bus! I would like my son to get involved in something in the school, sports, clubs, anything, but how do I even know what to encourage him to do when neither of us know what is even offered at the school? We are moving away from this school after this year. Just tired of it. I know more about what our future middle school is doing than one that my child has already attended for a year.

The teachers are terrible. My son had a math teacher who was fired from another school district and then was hired by Crayton. He had problems learning in several classes because the teachers could not keep the students under control. The principal would not transfer my son to other classes when it was requested. I had another child who would grade tests, including her own, for a teacher because then the teacher did not have to do as much work. My son had a teacher who called him by the wrong name all year. When you express you concerns in school meetings all the administrators do is defend the teachers.

We are leaving Crayton because of the reasons stated in the comments here already. The African American kids fight like crazy in the hallway. My daughter was literally tackled to the floor in the cafeteria because some boys were playing a game. She was injured and all of the kids saw this but not one teacher came to see what was happening and she was too afraid to say anything. She is not bullied on a normal basis, either. The kids are just unruly and play all sorts of physical games like knocking each other over or bear hugging each other from behind, which makes my daughter very uncomfortable. She is in all AAP classes and I have to say, the teachers she has are deplorable. She can't even understand one of them. Several have made comments about how they don't get paid enough and other ridiculous things. She has told me on numerous occasions that a teacher told them this or that, which is absolutely incorrect information. Cafeteria food is terrible, hallways between classes are unsafe with girls beating each other up between classes. Some teachers are alright while others are terrible. My daughter overall hated going there.

As a former student I must say that I feel this school was fairly dangerous for a middle school. There were fights on a regular basis (and I mean girls hitting each other in the face with shoes/ripping off each other's clothes etc.) There were also many disrespectful students who were disruptive in class and some teachers who seemed disinterested in teaching (or maybe just worn-down) other teachers were great. It's as shame that as few bad apples have to ruin it for the rest!
