    "Well this school is bleh to me.I've went here for two school years. First, a lot of the teachers here are unsatisfactory and do not know how to do their jobs. Second, the classes are not well structured. And third, you get judged a lot. In Southern states a majority of them talk too much and if your child is not loud and disruptive they will be labeled as "quiet". I've expierenced this way too many times. It's already bad that the students do this. But the teachers as well? I had to get my parents to call my teachers three times to get them to stop commenting on my personality. One teacher would tell me I was quiet everyday and would joke about it. Then after I was done with a presentation, she told me she didn't expect me to do that well. Another teacher told me I was rubbing off on a student because she wasn't talking in class anymore. I just find things like that rude. Let me by my own person. I enjoy keeping to myself. And I am not "quiet", it's called talking to certain people. So I hope nothing like this happens to your child/ren. Tell them to be themselves and to not let that bother them. I wanna point out an excellent teacher, Allison Shields. She's exceptional at her job."

    "Dent is a great school for smarter or more motivated kids who can be challenged in the magnet programs. For the other kids, I get the impression that average kids are not challenges as much, and there's not much parent involvement for them. The campus is really nice, and the principal has been good in dealing with our family. So have the teachers. Very good school for kids who are lucky enough to be smart, driven, curious, and to have involved parents."

    "im a student at Dent Middle in TWO Academies in the 8th grade. My years at Dent..well the 6th grade was awesome, probably because everything was new. In 7th grade, there was SO much drama and it did distract me and bring my grades lower than i've ever had. This year, (we have 36 days left!) it has been VERY boring. The teachers are...well not very nice & considering towards the students. They think the child has no life outside of school. I do NOT recommend TWO Academies to ANYONE!"
