Challenger Middle School Reviews
It's an okay school, not the best, not the worst. I never was particularly happy there, but maybe thats just me. Challenger doesn't offer many clubs or activities, etc. anymore, due to lack of funding. It would be a much more fulfilling experience if you were there in 2003 or something. I just hope it'll get better as time wears on. The teachers are good, though.
