Well, like any school, there are positives and negatives. For the positives: Teachers seem genuine and caring. Communication is good and tutoring/resources are available. Cafeteria is spotless. For the negative: Administration appears disorganized and policy questions go unanswered. Discipline is sorely lacking ( fights and unsafe environment). Common Core standards were applied this year with little professional development for the staff.

My son has attended this school for 2 years now. I don't have enough characters to explain how many things going wrong here! Participation Grades of 100% across the board and then straight D's and F's on all test!!! When confronting administration they act clueless that they about the egregious education given to the LEVEL 1 & 2 FCAT KIDS!! DON"T worry if your kid is in the Pre IB program you'll get Books, Homework and everything they needs to succeed. But if your child struggles they just get sloppy seconds and passed along!! I am pulling my son ASAP even if I have to work 2 jobs to pay for school.

Bad school! There are even gang signs in the bathrooms. Why don't parents teach their children discipline anymore. They're just setting their kids up for failure!

My daughter is completing the 6th grade at SSMS. Moving to the area this year, we were very hesitant having her zoned for this school. My daughter loves this school! The electives are wonderful, and my daughter loves MR. Nick!! She has mentioned that there is some fighting in this school, but she is enrolled in the Pre-IB program and has excelled regardless of the environment! I would recommend this school, but if you have a motivated learner-definitely enter them into the Pre-IB program!!!

My child currently attends this school. In the three years, that she has been a student at the middle school its been one of the worst experiences for her. The school says they have a zero tolerance for bulling but the deans just tell students to solve problems on their own. This obviously doesn't solve problems with true bullies. She had a opportunity to garner knowledge from a handful of good teachers. Ms. Riley and Mr. Kornya are both valuable asserts for the school. Mr. Fernandez and Mr. Ougel also play a positive role in the SSMS team.

South Seminole Middle School was the most horrible experience for my son. I only wish I had withdrawn him sooner than I did. He was bullied the entire 2 1/2 years he attended. So bad once, where the police department had to become involved, and the other student was expelled for the remainder of that year. The administration does absolutely nothing against bullying. I finally withdrew him during his 8th grade year after he was punched in the neck and stomach, no disciplinary action was taken, and no one admitted to having seen anything. This was definitely not a school for my son. The Dean is horrible, I'm not even sure how he manages to hold his position. Having him transfer to a private christian school was the best thing I ever did. SSMS is more like a zoo, no discipline whatsoever. Unfortunately I feel that if the administration doesn't begin handling the bullying in a professional manner, someone is bound to get seriously hurt one day. If it were possible to give this school a negative star rating, I would. Good Luck. :/

This school is ok in most areas..I guess having been in Fairfax County, Va's school system, I expect no less than the best...and what SSMS needs is uniforms...too many parents dress their daughters like S. OBT Hookers!
