Michael Grimmer Middle School Ratings & Reviews

I have a 5th grader that started Grimmer this year. There are great 5th grade teachers who really care about helping to make the transition to middle school. I do believe there is a good balance to homework. This day and age parents have more more access to what kids are learning in the classroom and homework thanks to programs like Canvas and Skyward, which is great.

I moved from Pittsburgh here and started attending in 7th grade. I know that isn't enough time to gain the full experience, but this school is horrible in my opinion. There have been a recent suspension of 12 students for inappropriate behavior. I have noticed many students misbehaving in full view of the teachers, who have not done anything to stop them. The substitute teachers do not treat the students well. Too much homework is assigned with the teachers not teaching you anything. Since I do not want to list all the cons of this school, I will list the one and only pro. This school has a great band. The teacher is one of my favorites and knows how to help his students. This school should really pay more attention to the students and less money to score boards in the gym.

1. FIGHTS It was mentioned in one of the previous reviews that there were fights EVERY DAY. That is a complete lie, and it isn't just a small exaggeration. While at grimmer, there was a fight every day for about a week towards the end of the year. There were only two weeks like that, and it was instantly FIXED BY THE STAFF by threatening to take away the Eighth Grade Rewards Dance (A.K.A. Grad/Graduation) for those who were suspended because of an act of violence towards another student. Of course, fights only took place among the eighth graders... But overall, my graduate class was a BAD EXAMPLE to set for the lower class-men. In seventh grade we had a couple fights... And something else but I'll talk about that momentarily. My class was a bad example, and I hope no other classes end up as awful as our group.

I am currently an 8th grader at Grimmer, and since I started here, everything went downhill. First off, there is absolutely no school-spirit anymore. Spirit week, NJHS/student council events, extra curriculars, and just fun things that students can do... No one participates. For instance, we had a food drive, and only like, 200 cans were brought in, as opposed to the 6,000 that were brought in earlier years. Also, a lot of the students are horrible. There's a fight at least everyday, lots and lots of bullying and drama... And the teachers don't really do anything to stop it. Nor do the counselors. Speaking of the teachers, once you reach 7th grade, they're medicore. I did not learn anything from my 7th grade classes, only to be stuck with even worse teachers (minus my social studies and math teacher), in 8th grade. We get an unbelieveable amount of homework, and the teachers don't seem like they really want to be there, a lot of them. Finally, the cafeteria food is disgusting. There's stuff that looks like cat food and just... Bring your own lunch, please. See, I know I only explained the cons of this school, but that is because in my opinion, the bad outweighs the good.

I have had 3 kids go through Grimmer and all have had a great experience. They offer great Merit and Advanced coursework, which will prepare them well to enter into High School and continue on to take Advanced and AP classes there. Most of the teachers are hard-working and show they care about the students and their success. Finally, the administration is also is very involved with the students and help to make the overall atmosphere of the school uplifting and a positive learning environment. They manage to have some fun with the student body with special assumblies and fund-raising activities (ie. student/staff basketball game and bean bag tourney) along with offering appropriate discipline to ensure all student's safety and well-being.
