    "Before I go into writing about my experience at Dacula Middle I want to disclose that this is my own personal experience and should not waver anyone from wanting to attend this school. Now that's out of the way, I wanted to first start off by saying that I attended Dacula from 6th to 8th grade and was a constant honor roll student. Even with this, my 3 years at Dacula were the most difficult of my school career. The group of students I learned with proved to be very clique-ish and weren't very receiving of new students. If you differed from the popular clique you were automatically teased. Within a year I faced a bullying problem and the assistant principal barely took any action to have the problem resolved. The bullying nearly continued for 2 years. The guidance counselors were not very helpful and didn't keep an open relationship with the students. The only positive that I can give this school, is that its academics were great and I did encounter some pretty great teachers along the way. Besides that, I hope that this review helps any former and new students at Dacula. Hopefully the administration has buckled down on bullying and has tried to help students."

    "I have had two children that went to Dacula Middle School. My son has learn to stay away from all the problem children and stay positive. He tells me daily that there are a lot of behavior problems which does not allow the teacher to teach to their best ability. I thank God for having a strong minded child that does not follow the crowd. I personally do not care for the school but he not having any issue so I will not transfer him. My daughter on the other hand gave into the temptation of being call lame and started acting like the other kids that and let her grades go down, asking foolish and I can continue but I will not. The administrators really need to get a handle on the disrespectful kids that make this school a unpleasant place. Most of all the PARENT NEED TO BE ACCOUNTABLE OF THEIR KIDS...JUST MY THOUGHTS. FYI. after strong discipline my daughter grades are back up."

    "They will do the bare minimum to appear helpful, but when you clear all of their smoke from the air, you will see they are only lowering the bar and deferring the problem. The administration will appear like they care until you start to ask pertinent questions and want to see documentation of your child's progress. At this point, you will be lucky to get answers to your questions. BEWARE! The administration at this school does not have your special education child's best interest as far as their education goes. Parents, all I can say is keep asking the important questions until you know you have a solid and truthful answer. Know how to read test scores, because they are banking on the fact that you don't know."

    "I am a parent of a sixth grader at dacula middle. The school itself is great. I think the cirriculum is difficult but apparently is what is needed to survive high school and college. My son is in the gifted program and does very well. It did take about six weeks to get in a groove and the school did not prep us new middle school parents well. I had no idea how to find homework assignments on the school website and there are other important links on the left hand side of the teachers websites that no one mentioned. There are online textbooks for the first several weeks that I did not know about or how to get to them much less use them so it was hard tryiing to help my son with homework. As to his teaxhers, I do have to say his sixth grade math teacher mrs.sanford is quite difficult. She will not help with any extra credit or help the student thrive and is also very disorganized. The other teachers are much easier to deal with and communicate whenever I need them. The assistant sixth grade principal is great. Overall it's a good school but if anyone from the school reads this, you might want to put together a packet for new middle school parents."
