    "I am an overprotective mother of a special needs child and while yes, there are a lot of students and yes there are other issues that you may have read, you can find this in any school. What you won't find in any school is the SUPPORT that both my child I receive from the Special Education Department,Guidance Department, Psych/Counseling services and her teachers; I can not say enough positive things about my experiences in working with them for the greater good of my child! They do LISTEN to my concerns and want the same positive future for my daughter as I do. THIS is not hype. This is written in hopes that I could ease the mind of just one parent of a 5th grader heading in to the middle school with special needs or not. We have made it halfway through 7th and she is making great strides.The transition is much harder for us than it is for them and while we may be home worrying, this is an exciting time for them. The greatest thing I have ever done for my child was to TRUST the process and allow room for independence! It is the hardest yet most rewarding gift you can give them. Good luck parents."

    "I am a student who is going into the 8th grade and may I say; this school completely and absolutely sucks. If anyone is thinking of sending their kids here it is a big mistake. I am in honors and most of the teachers that teach this form of education just toss whatever they don't wanna teach at us. In my regents classes, however, those teachers do a better job of explaining. I would rather be in all regents than in honors for this reason. I also did a sport. This coach had pushed us super hard. The coach had made us run until we had puked. Also, a lot of teachers swear and make racist comments during class. They also have us throw away our lunch if it doesn't also have a healthy food with it. Many teachers retire in the middle of the year so we get new teachers. Since the school needs peopl right away these newbies are quite strange and they make us students feel uncomfortable. Don't come or send anyone here. All I can say is I can't wait to be leaving this district next year. This school sucks."

    "This school isn't as great as it seems. There are rude behaviors in the hallways; especially in the eighth grade hallways. A lot of seventh and eighth graders and some sixth graders use inappropriate languages and the school food isn't so healthy and nutritious like they say. They serve french fries, pizza, chicken wings, etc. at times and they also have Snapple, My real complaint is the testing that has been going around lately. I had nonstop studying hours and I get freaked out about my grades every now and then. I feel like people in my grade are failing in main subjects, especially math. The teachers are nice and well educated, but students do not seem to try hard enough in school."

    "Some teachers are awesome. The school is great with sports and very thing, but the foods there ok. We need to get better foods even though this is our last year"

    "Hello, I'm moving to 8th grade and this school is not as good as you've might imagined it. First off, going from class to class is a big rush and often times some are late. Yes we can all agree that some students like to cause trouble for themselves and others. Other than that, students often have to go through stuffed up hallways with kids blocking the way or just when another kid gets in trouble and the staff have to get in the way and lecture them into what they have done wrong. Another thing is the school lunch which they have claimed to be "healthy" but are pretty poor quality morsels that are supposedly called food. Sometimes fights do go through but the staff manages to stop these barbaric clashes between students. It is also very important to find the right group of kids or else they can influence on you negatively. There are also mean and disrespectful pupils if you stay in the school long enough. The student government is also pretty much useless as they do not deliver promises as they promised. The school has its perks, but overall it is still not such a great school."
