Hull Middle School Reviews
Your child will get a quality education at this school...
Hull is a HUGE middle school, from a population stand-point, however the county is scheduled to open a new middle school next year (Fall 2014) which will reduce overcrowding. Assuming your child can handle a large learning environment, they will likely get a quality education here, however, they have to be willing to do the work.
When relocating to the state/county last year, our primary focus was picking a home in the right school cluster as we relocated here from a highly competitive/successful school district in suburban Maryland and wanted to ensure our child's education wasn't compromised. In general we've been very pleased with the quality and enthusiasm of the educators and support staff at the school. The 'Probe' course series (accelerated, academically challenging as they work 1-2 grade levels above) provided our child with the educational stimulation we expected. The only potential issues to consider, if picking this school, are:
- They use a non-traditional 'block' class schedule system, which can be confusing for students who manage better in structured environments. It's also a challenge for kids in the accelerated programs because they cover a lot of material in a class, requiring a lot of outside effort/homework to keep up;
- There is a 'strict' dress code (likely to manage social pressures and economic variances within the student poplulation) but it is not equally admininstered across the populations;
- The performance arts are under-emphasized within the curriculum, in part likely due to the limitations a block schedule creates; and
- The school-sponsored sports teams are VERY limited - which is odd considering how important they appear to be in the high school (Peachtree Ridge - an EXCELLENT school) and in building school spirit.
Overall we're happy Hull parents...
