    "Cradock Middle has been going down hill since the old leadership left for the high school. There are constant fights at the school and the students only seem to get suspended after SOL testing. The current principal bullies the faculty and staff (especially new hires or transfers). She uses the meetings to belittle the staff and rarely offers encouragement. Reporting her to the HR is of no use since they are all "friends" and could care less about the "little people" since they will get their "fat" checks upon retirement. The teachers spend most of class time redirecting bad behaviors. It's a shame that almost half of last years faculty/staff left this school last year."

    "I am disappointed that Cradock Midldle school would place a child in a class that she already successfully passed with a straight A. They have no other science class for her to take. Here she is at the beginning of a new school year and cries before going to school every morning. This is not fair to a student who has been an honor student since 2nd grade. Now she's bored!"

    "Cradock has changed dramatically over the years. It is apparent that the current leadership is concerned about the overall well-being of the students. Just look at all of the positive gains and student activities that are available to the students."

    "This school is the worst possible school to send your child to and we are in the process of moving out of Portsmouth so that we can get our son into a decent school. My son has special needs and has received little to no support in school. the administrators have little interest in seeing him succeed and NO interest in learning about autism. The is no communication back and forth and I even had the vice principal argue with me that my son's diagnosis wasn't one for autism!! I am disgusted with the school and would urge any parent who is considering moving to Portsmouth to NOT do it!"

    "I can't beleive how terrible this school is it is falling apart all over the place. My children have been bullied and beat up and although i have brought this to the principal's attention several time she refused to take action agianst the repeated perpitrators. This school's curriculum is fine but the disipline is horrid."
