I agree with C. Brandon. Mr. Collida was a great principal, and my experiences were great as well despite the typical occasional middle school drama. The school was on DeBaliviere near Delmar. I experienced so many new things in the "mandatory after school program"...archery, ice skating, camping, raquetball, tennis, etc. Other great teachers were Mrs. Vidakis (social studies), Mr. Cunningham, Mrs. Holliday (creative writing), and the African-American female literature teacher (forgot her name-?Williams?). Mr. March, Mr. Wallace and the other gym teachers were tough and I didn't like them back then, but they kept us disciplined and did their jobs effectively. Even though I didn't like every teacher because of the subject they were all good teachers. You all should be proud of yourselves and your career.

Don't go to this school unless you don't want to learn anything. The classrooms are too busy taking care of discipline problems and teaching to the lowest students. They never meet the state testing requirements.
