9/19/2011parentI have been told by my daughter that she is being bullied. I know that this happens because some kids are not mature and they are going through a lot at home or are just plain mean. After contacting the main office and the principal, who reassured me that they were 'On Top Of Things", I talked to my daughter that same evening and she told me that nothing had changed, that she was still forced to work with one of her bullies, and that they were still messing with her. I will not stand for this bullying, and I will take the needed actions to make it stop, whatever that may be.
8/10/2011otherI think Neal is a great school! I am an 8th grade student and athelete there. I am in all honers classes and most schools don't have honers like geometry and algebra for 7th, and 8th graders. This school has changed for the better over the last few years. We hope to see more students that are excited to comme to our school soon! Thanks for your time! :) -Student
2/2/2010studentI think neal is a very good school as a student because of the teachers I have now. I think neal couldnt get any better because they have the best dance teacher and the best band teacher. Even though I dont agree with the uniforms neal is still a very good school with the best principal. (Shout out to the scohlars team 09-10)
12/26/2008parentI am a parent and was very concerned about sending my daughter to Neal but so far there has not been any problem with her or the teachers at Neal. I have to say the Principal Mr. Wilson is doing a great job with keeping the students in order as well as the other faculty. I would recommend this school to another parent as long as you stay involved with your child and teachers.
6/4/2007parentMy daughter went to Neal in 1999-2000 and it was a nightmare. Now I have 2 sons there and the improvement with this principal is nothing short of a miracle. I only pray Mr. Wilson stays until my sons move on the Southern There could not be a better teacher, mentor, child advocate than Amanda Pope. She is driven to have her students be the best in everything they attempt. I am looking forward to the next 2years with my son at Neal. (my oldest son will be at the Southern School of Engineering and I feel he is prepared to succeed there becuse of his years a Neal.) Renee Wall
5/11/2007parentI am not impressed with the things I see at Neal middle school .I have a child that goes to Neal and this is her first year going there. the bathrooms are not sanitary and not many parents show up for parent teacher confrences. there are too may fights and not these many after school activities. if you are reading this I'm not saying that you don't need to take your child to this school but it's just the fact that this school needs work. a concerned parent Becky right
9/10/2006parentI am very impressed by the way the principal has cleaned up the school. The teachers are very caring toward the students often giving hugs and using positive praise. Teachers show interest in the student's by attending games and cheering the students on. I am very pleased to have my child at this school.
8/24/2006parentThis was my daughters first year at Neal(Term Fall 05-06)and I am very disappointed in the quality of education that is offered at this school. There is no structure, there is no way a child can learn in an unstablized environment. There needs to be control there is too much violence, my daughter witnessed fights almost everyday. I am praying that this school term is better.
3/6/2006parentI think it is time to clean this school up. The quality and performance of most of the teachers is at an all time low. I have two children who are attending this school and I wish now I had never sent them there. I can only hope that with a new superintendent that we will focus on education not what makes the school look good.
12/9/2005parentThis is my second child that has attended Neal, I am glad to say that their current principle has done a great job with cleaning up the school. It is much better than it used to be. I feel that it is much safer now than it was 3-5 years ago. There isn't as much violence and i am very pleased with the new changes at Neal!
