    "I am a student graduating from Surfside this year. Surfside is the worst school I have ever attended. However, I have met some great teachers at Surfside that truly care about their students. Sadly, they do not make up for the rest of the staff at Surfside who don't care about their students at all. I would strongly urge anyone thinking of going to Surfside to stay as far away from that school as possible."

    "I am in fifth grade; today I took a tour of Surfside Middle School because I am going there for 6th grade. When I first walked on campus, I was amazed by the beautiful place I was in. Honestly, the students and staff at the school seemed like the kindest people ever and I can't wait to join Surfside and become a shark! The students introduced us to all the awesome clubs they had there and the principal introduced us to herself and the other staff members. We went through the 6th, 7th, and 8th grade halls. This school seems very organized and amazing, I also love the actresses and actors and band members at the school. The band welcomed us at the front of the school with a song when we first arrived, it was truly beautiful. They put on a sneak peak of a play they're doing of Aladdin; I loved it. This school is very neat and clean and also seems to have wonderful people in it. I totally cannot wait to join this amazing school. -A soon to be student"

    "As an 'Alumni' of this school i have had first hand experience to the bullying, teachers, administration and EVERYTHING. I will do my best to WARN parents away from this pit. 1. Teachers: I've only had one experience with a teacher that has actually changed my as a person. Mark Douglas, he teaches Geography, US History, and Creative Writing. He's cool, young and he UNDERSTANDS that not all students learn the same way. He uses a combination of fun educational videos, worksheets and lectures to fully engross you with knowledge. I graduated SSMS 2 years ago and we still keep in contact. I obviously haven't taken every class in the whole school but i've heard from many friends that Mr Holmes, the band teacher, has been the most influential person in their lives. 2. Bullies: Yes, parents, the year is 2014 and bullying is very much still around today, but not the way that you remember it. Kids dont give others wedgies. Instead they'll call others 'faggots' 'losers' 'nerds'. They'll trip, push, or knock you down. Your kids swear. I know it's not something you want to hear but EVERY kid in ANY school nowadays (elem. schools are exempt...for now) swears exponentially. ITS JUST 'COOL'"

    "My daughter chose to go to Surfside for her 8th grade year. It is by far the worst school my ever daughter has ever attended. The teachers and staff do not put the students first. There are some teachers that will even go as far as blaming the students for their lack of teaching/planning skills."

    "We moved to Panama City Beach last year and enrolled our child at Surfside. This school has been an incredible experience for him. He doesn't play sports and isn't in band, so we thought he may have a hard time getting involved. We were wrong. He joined one of the service clubs, Kiwanis I think, and got involved there. They also have a Leo Club and a Beta Club. His teachers do a lot of small group work which helped him get to know a lot of his classmates. I thought it was really nice that the first week of school his teacher made it a point to find other kids to go to lunch with him and introduce him around. Academically, they are an A school. He did really well on the state's standardized test this year and his classes seem challenging. He's really excited for school to start in a couple of weeks. I would recommend this school to any parent coming to PCB."
