    "I'm currently an 8th grade student here at Don Estridge, and it's OK. MOST of the teachers here are amazing. There's just a select few that ruin it for me. Don't get me wrong; I've learned a great deal at this school and I felt safe, secure, and that I was getting a good education. There are just some teachers though who do not even come close to the others. They don't really pay attention to who's being disruptive and can get very off topic. Also, the administration has been going way overboard for lunches. We've had to have assigned seating and silent lunches at our only free time during school. That is definitely not fair to the students that do the right thing. Other than unfairness and some of the teachers, this school has a lot to offer. I highly recommend taking art as an elective. Mr. Green is fantastic and an inspiration. Also, Mr. Francis has an awesome technology class but that's about as high tech as it gets except for CPS. My test scores have gone up each year and I've learned a lot here. I have to say I will miss Don Estridge."

    "As a former Don Estridge student I say in all honesty that this school didn't make me resent getting out of bed in the morning. The teachers are more than amazing at their job and try to improve if given constructive criticism. Yes there may be lots of homework, but only for difficult courses. If your child can`t handle the curriculum then they should get a schedule change. I left that school with three high school credits and a great education, I`m proud to say I`m the alumni of Don Estridge High Tech Middle School."

    "Don't let the name fool you...There is nothing high tech about this school. 'High tech' means the kids have to use remote controls to enter their test answers so it's easier for the teachers to grade. Lots of homework, with little content. Academics take a back seat to everything, especially sports. There aren't any academic awards for 6th or 7th graders but 1st cuts of the volleyball team makes the front page of the website. Absolutely NO consistency in the use of the main communication channel (Edline). Teachers routinely post erroneous grades & do NOT keep the calendar updated. This means posted homework assignments aren't really due on the posted dates and tests/quizzes 'appear' out of nowhere the day before. This is NOT just 1 teachers: This is 75% of them. The icing on the cake are the 'Silent Lunches' where the kids are not allowed to talk during lunch. Ridiculous. Ironically there is no real discipline as students who are disruptive just have to leave class & come back the next day to repeat it. Students caught CHEATING ON TESTS are just asked to stop cheating. Things have changed since 2011 & Don Estridge is turning in his grave that this school carries his namesake."
