    "I am a parent and I have noticed that if you pick your child(ren) up after school there is a line of vehicles circled around the school and an unrealistic wait time. There has to be a better way to have "car riders" get out faster. I have waited for over thirty minutes before which is unbelievable, I did notice that other parents would park in the line then go in and get their child(ren). I was wondering why " car riders" didnt exit on the end of the building where bus drops off children in the morning, with traffic supervision during the time buses are existing the school. Just a thought."

    "I am a seventh grade student of SMS. I feel that the school has suceeded in education. My teachers are great and have great teaching skills. In the field of extracurricular activities, they have done very well. I am gifted and talented in art and music. The programs are wonderful,enjoyable, and educational. Our school is clean of issues pertaining to drugs or weapons. The acedemic programs I have on my team are full of things that make our learning fun. I know that my vocabulary,math,scial studies, and grammar have improved since last year. The parent involvement is wonderful. Two of my classmate's moms work at the school that I know of. The parents are also involved in the field trips too. Stewart Middle School is a great place for kids to go."

    "I was disturbed that the Gifted and Talented program did virtually nothing - was poorly organized and administered while trying to make it sound otherwise. Trying to get information from administrators was difficult and frustrating. Jargon and buzzwords instead of facts and figures. The Orff program was good and, for the most part, my child's teachers were good, but when an English teacher can't say, spell or define 'differentiate' as applied to school actions, it doesn't bode well. There are a few inspiring, passionate teachers; too few. Office staff has always been helpful. I took my child out of the school because I didn't see it likely to get any better. Overall leadership was lacking except when it was being political."
