    "As a retired school administrator, I am occasionally asked to fill in at a school when there is an administrative vacancy and I have enjoyed these opportunities to reconnect with teachers and students. Currently, I am the Interim Principal for Innovation Middle School in the San Diego Unified School District. I have been amazed at the student and faculty teamwork, quality of instruction, student-centered approaches to teaching and learning, character development emphasis, and systematic STEM and technology implementation. Students are polite, caring and dedicated to their studies. All of the staff, certificated and classified, work together as a cohesive team to assure the best outcomes for students, and community agencies and businesses support them in so many invaluable ways. This middle school is remarkable in its devotion to the students' success as young scholars and contributing members of the global community."

    "Innovation could possibly be the best middle school in the state, but as a current student, I believe the school could use more watch and security. Nothing in this school is a accurate truth. For example, the physical education was said to have a wide array of sports students could choose from, but turns out that is only about once every grading period. I will not lie, the staff is great, but the students need great improvement."

    "iMiddle is a fantastic middle school. From the principal to the teachers to the support staff, everyone is caring, involved and nuturing. They have a zero tolerance policy on bullying which they actually enforce. The two times my son had a physical bullying incidence, it was handled promptly and appropriately. My son is a very strong academic student and this school met his needs. I love the use of technology to enhance the students' learning. The academic expectations for students is high at iMiddle. I am sad that my son's time at this school is over, however, he is very well prepared for high school as a result of his middle school years at Innovation Middle School!"

    "This is our first year at Innovation Middle. I am thrilled with everything I ahve seen so far. The principal and staff are knowledgeable, friendly and helpful, the teachers respond promptly to any email concerns, and the I like how everything is run at that this school. I am delighted that my son is attending this school! My son loves it as well and excited to go to school each day. It was a very smooth transition from elementary school to this middle school for him."

    "My son is a 7th grader attending Innovation Middle, he seems to enjoy it and I can't think of anything negative. The teachers are very involved and communicate issues well. My son has plenty of homework, so I know he is learning and the focus on technology while intergrating academia is great. My son gets the benefit of face to face instruction plus the added online (3G payed by the school) benefit of surfing the net to research, complete and submit homework. He is learning the independence and motivation needed to take online classes and the different software needed for future success. This is an exceptional school, I fully expect the test scores to rise."
