Hughes Middle School Reviews

By a Current Student on

I just finished my first year of school here, and it was awesome! Right away you can meet so many new people and still have the friends you had before because you would all become friends. The principal is really nice and so is the the staff. The food isn't too pricy and there is a lot of outdoor sitting areas. Overall, this is the best middle school I have ever heard of! If you go, you would instantly love it there.
