    "Great school with great kids! I visited there for the school's 50th anniversary and it was even more wonderful than when I attended in the 70s. Beautiful big library, grass playfield, iPads for students and a great, caring staff."

    "Pershing middle needs a complete overhaul. Not all, but most of the teachers have gotten to comfortable and therefore lazy. Following through with educational plans and accommodations seems to be challenging for many of them. Luckily my daughter is very self sufficient and seems to be doing well despite them. She finds the counselors cold and detached from the plight of navigating others behavioral issues. She states (and I agree), that all the note taking and grades based on notes makes her feel like a court reporter. She is great at taking notes now, yet if you ask her what she learned about that days topic all she can do is repeat the notes. No actual learning is occuring. Next year is her 7th grade year and she will be switching schools."

    "I have been very pleased with Pershing thus far. My son is challenged, loves his teachers, and is thrilled about his experiences in the pre-engineering program. The teachers, many of which have been at Pershing for over a decade, are dedicated, supportive, and understanding. I also appreciate that my son has an adequate, but not overwhelming amount of homework. While challenged, he still has enough time to be involved in extracurricular activities without being overwhelmed."

    "Overall I am pleased with Pershing Middle School. I was told there was a zero tolerance for bullying and yet my son has been bullied several times. I have gone to the counselors and school office many times and still no changes are made. Other than that, Pershing has great educational opportunities with band, P.E., 6th grade camp and musicals which I think is great to get involved in a school whether it be a parent or child. This year my son has been doing alot better in his classes despite the bullying. I think stronger rules need to be in place."

    "I love this school. Two of my children attended Pershing, and I'm hoping my third will have the chance. Unfortunately, the new administration (namely the new principal) is ruining what used to be an amazing educational experience. She has taken away the block schedule, drama, and doesn't listen to parent input. I hope she sees the light and adjusts to the needs of our community."
