    "I would not reccomend this school under the leadership of Mr. Peek and Ms. Causey...very unruly with lack of direction or care for academic progress. Extremely poor learning environment"

    "Veterans Memorial Middle School is a great school. My son attends this school and has had nothing but positive things to say regarding the teachers, office staff and principal. I have been very pleased with the education he's received. . .and the PTA is wonderful!"

    "This is my son's first year at Veteran's. Living in Covington, I would say that almost "all" the middle schools are ranked about the same on Great schools.com Having said this, I haven't had a problem with this school at all. All of my son's teachers have cared and have shown heart. T he principal seems to go out of his way in making sure each student feels important. Having lived all over the US in various states, 13 to be exact, I've discovered that you cannot depend on the teachers to "solely teach your child;" you must also get involved-really involved. We have always been involved with our children's education and I believe it shows. I do believe, however, that when we start investing MORE into our education and its teachers-paying them more of what their worth, we will get better results. We don't mind seeing our favorite pro football star receive millions to play one season or wince at purchasing a 100.00 + concert ticket yet our teachers, who spend more of their time in a day with our children, the futures of America, are seriously, seriously underpaid for what they do."

    "What I don't understand is why are the parents constanly complaining on this site. I thank you for your comments, but if the school is this bad, call Channels,2 and 5 and I guarantee you they will come. I am transferring my children from Conyers to Covington, and I refuse to accept what I am reading on this site. I promise you, I am quick to Boycott and get others involved. I have sons, and their education is very important to me and they have always been on the Principal Lists and Honor Roll. THINK THIS IS A GAME, PLAY WITH IT!!!!!"

    "I have two students at VMMS, in 6th and 7th grades. Both years, I've been disappointed by the lack of communication from the teachers. I had one teacher call me three months into the school year last year to inform me my child was missing several assignments (some of which she had turned in and had to be tracked down), some of which dated back to the beginning of the school year. Why wait until that late to notify a parent of a problem? My 6th grader needs an IEP, which I've been requesting since September, and still haven't been successful at getting a response in April. The principal is very nice and responds quickly to communications, which is about the only positive I've experienced in the school, other than a friendly office staff. The school events that I've attended have been disorganized. We've received letters both years claiming my kids have several unexcused absences, all which either should've been excused (with doctors notes turned in!) or were times my kids were in school but arrived late due to their bus arriving late. The school seems to be disorganized and lack communication skills."
