“It is a well, put together school. Every year, we grow not only as individuals, but as a whole!”

“Great school, but need better communication with parents in some areas.”

“Communication between administration and faculty is lacking. More communication would help make everything better. The community needs a clear message that they do not dictate to the school.”

“Nothing is done about bullies or sexual harassment. Lunch is bad, and many teachers do not teach or care.”

“This year, there's been a lot of changes with new teachers. It makes it unstable for the kids.” -Parent

“Some admin is supportive, but not all. I feel very safe, but feel that discipline is not being handled effectively. Parents and children are calling the shots and admin. needs to stand up. We have excellent teachers who could do their job if they weren't bogged down in testing, county mandates, paperwork and disrespectful students.”

“We are treated as 5 year olds; the staff needs to up their game and treat us as equals instead of children that don't know anything.”
“Overall, quite happy with my daughters education. I am unhappy in regard to handling of recent hiring of band sub for (teacher) and also the fact that my child class isn't going to MPA. Also had a problem with situation in my daughters class that wasn't resolved properly.”

“We need a leadership that supports teachers and staff, a leadership that treats us like professionals, that trusts us above everyone else, and that will defer to us on things that they do not know about. I value my students, their parents and our staff and I wish that this was recognized by those "in charge".”

This anonymous survey was created on SurveyMonkey.com. It was sent to parents of current and former R. Dan Nolan Middle School students, faulty and staff members, and students. Approximately 100 people responded to the survey between March 3rd - March 14th.
