Handy Middle School Ratings & Reviews

February 03, 2016 Submitted by a parent
This school gets a bad rap. My sons attend this school from 2010 to 2015. As they progressed through each grade level, they were contained (mostly) to one floor of the building. This meant they passed between classes with only their grade peers. Teachers monitored halls during passing and watched behaviors. Lunchtimes between 6-7-8 were kept separate. There were Honors classes at every grade level for those who tested and qualified. The honors classes covered all four major subjects. The teachers were easy to contact, whether email, text, or some type of class messaging system.Additionally many members of the staff would serve after school time offering academic help whenever needed. They have after school study sessions for students who struggle, with a late bus picking up at four and taking kids to designated drop off points for parent pick up.There is ample chances for students to try sports. Handy offers seasons of football, basketball, soccer, track. There are cheer and Pom groups, science groups, and band of course. There are also three -times -a -year after school offerings . They are Offered and taught by staff .... students can explore other minor sports, and athletics, robotics, computers, and science fun.Most people who speak ill of HMS do not have children that have ever attend there. Is there less than ideal teachers there? A few yes, but because of the districts new rigorous evaluation protocols, they are slowly disappearing. I would HIGHLY recommend this middle school. Now that my boys are in high school, we find we really miss it there.
