    "I am a student of this school. I am in 6th grade, actually, and I am about to finish up my first year in this school. I disagree with anyone who has said that the education that we recieve is anything but sufficient. To say that our education is inadequate would be utterly false. The fact of teachers and being treated as if we were in the military instead of students is somewhat untrue. Many teachers push students a little more than others because of the fact that the students are not reaching their full potential. I am in gifted classes for not only Language Arts and writing but also Mathematics. The disciplinary issue is one that many may seem overexaggerated, which in my opinion it is. If you were sent to the office for anything, you would have been written up and received either ISS or After-School Detention with our old principal. Overall, this school is my choice of schools for the remainder of my middle and high school education. The day I leave this school for good will definitely be the day I walk across the football field to receive my diploma."

    "Irwin County Middle School WAS a great school until this current year, The "official" seems more concerned about overly disiplining students instead of encouraging them to try harder and be positive. The teachers are as good as they can be but under hese new ridiculous rules even they are frusterated! My child has attended Irwin County Schools for 8 years and iv never had a problen until now! Also, in 8 years she has never been in ANY trouble and now she just dont care bc of the officials new policy that does absolutley NOTHING but discourage them and leave them confused! I dont stand alone on this issue either. Several parents are experience it and have transferred out. If the board members would do their job which is to look out for the wellbeing of our children, instead of saving face, they would realize just how much they have neglected these kids that only want to succeed in life! Parent involvment dont exsist unless the situation is critical or a parent just dropps by!"

    "I have worked in this school system for about 10 years and I was very disturbed to read the review about the lack of education the kids are recieving and how they are treated like military instead of kids. We have to have discipline measures to keep the kids in a safe environment. We work daily to try to involve parents with no avail for many. In the last 10 years, I have realized that every year has become worse because of the lack of respect from the kids for their peers and adults. If this is not taught when they are small children, it is very hard to teach later in life. I believe that Irwin County Schools are some of the best schools in our state,"

    "The teachers are awesome. They go over and beyond the call of educating to insure that the student is well informed about today's and tomorrow's world."
