Read what parents are saying about Hilton Head Island Middle School
My child attend this school - on the surface all appears to be good. The principal strives for student discipline which she believes is the fundamental to learning. All students have tablets, the assignments and teacher postings are done electronically. A large number of the teachers are new to the school and have a tenure of two years or less.Now the reality in my opinion...- The principle thinks the discipline is the only tool to learning. She spends most of her time in her office and acts as a dictator. - The computers break down and it takes forever to fix them. My child's computer has been in the media center to be fixed, off and on for over nine weeks in one semester!! And she is required to use the computer to do her work. You think somebody would raise a flag and stay 'Houston we have a problem!" No not in this school.- Those new teachers, are the replacements for the good ones that left; because they were not going to put up with a dictator of a principle. The administrations story about them leaving because they were not good , or it cost too much to live in Hilton Head and they wanted to be paid more is not true.Check out the school grades...they are failing and have been getting worst over the past two years...!Where is the superintendent? How many exit interviews has he done with the departing teachers? What is the results of the teachers surveys? Since this is a failing school how many surprised visits has he made to a classroom and sat through the whole class? Lot of questions need to be asked of the administration...If the administration puts up with mediocrity or is not aware of the problem then it's time for new a principle and a superintendent.

The principal is horrible, all she cares about is uniforms. They have little control over the bad kids, while the good kids continue to suffer- She punishes by grade, not individually. Also, she has no respect to the political beliefs of some students. Democratic posters hang in the hallways, while students who oppose this and have expressed their feelings about having these posters have been ignored.

Little gangsters beat and rob other students. My son has been mugged and beaten at least a half dozen times. School does not allow back packs because some students bring weapons. Teachers sit back and watch.

Kids with learning problems have no hope of succeeding in this school! Teachers too busy trying to earn extra money by coaching or mentoring clubs after school to be available to students who need academic help. Parents must be vigilant and demanding in order to obtain any assistance for their child. I wish I could afford a private school. HHIMS gets an F!
