    "ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS SCHOOL!!! Front office staff are nice and helpful. Teachers are pleasant. Lunchroom is sooooo clean!!! Buses run on time. School grounds are kept clean. Middle school children are allowed to express themselves (within reason) as they like.... haven't witnessed or heard of any bullying issues (and I volunteer at the school a lot)...."

    "I was a student for the full three years. The first two years my teachers rarely ever assigned homework. My 8th grade year was much better. I had a teacher and he was a new teacher and he wasn't like the other pushover teachers at the school. He actually challenged us, and I personally like that because it teaches us what we can do. But most teachers aren't like that, all they do is sit on their bums and hand out packets! Oh and don't even get me started on the band teacher... Oh my! He was rude and terrible towards the orchestra teacher! All year they had fundraisers with those gross chocolate bars! YUCK! They kept asking band/orchestra students to keep hawking out those gross chocolate bars to their friends and family! The guidance counselors this year was a complete joke! I honestly don't know what they were doing but they sure weren't helping the students! If you want your child to have a good middle school education/experience do NOT send your child here!! Also at least twice a school year a rogue alligator crawls into the pond by the bus loop or the campus! Yikes! -Disgruntled Student"

    "Do not send your child to this school if you want them to actually learn. My child went there for 6th grade and she honestly very rarely had homework or a test. I would ask her everynt and she would say no and when I email her teachers they confirmed they rarely assign it. No wonder they don't even give the kids books to take home. they have to share with the other 1000 kids. My child is now in 7th grade at another school and I'm so happy with the actual teaching. She has homework in every class along with multiple quiz/tests. I can go on the school website and see homework for each class and grades. Heron Creek Middle school is a shame. No wonder so many kids do poorly on the FCATS. I also didn't feel my child was very secure there. With the open campus style these children (11 year olds) can easily have some pedifile off the street walk up to them. There is nothing keeping just anyone from walking freely around campus. Don't move to North Port if you want super schools"

    "Bad place to send your kids. Dont send them here. Both my kids went here and my experience with the stupidity and narrow mindness of some of the teachers makes me sick. Forget fundraising, theives. Theives is what the band is when it comes to fundraising and crediting the students. Shell out your money over and over, ask your friends for money. You raise the full amount of the trip yet you pay the full amount on top of that. Disgraceful and dishonest, No integrity. No place to send you kids."

    "I am happy with the school. There is no fighting it is very safe. I can check my daughters grade on the computer. There are sports like volleyball and track. We like the back to school night they have every year where we can talk to the teachers and I always get a response when I e mail the teachers. I would recommend this school."
