  • Croft Design Center Middle Prep reviewed by a parent

    My children have thoroughly enjoyed their experiences & learning at Croft Middle. I requested a special transfer for my children to attend this school due to our address being zoned to attend McMurray Middle. Several years ago I pulled my son out of McMurray due to a severe bullying issue with several children that was continuous & unrelenting. The problems arise with staff not being able to control the issues due to the kids being too afraid of telling anyone for fear of repercussions which makes bullying a never ending cycle. At the time my son was of smaller stature than most boys his age which caused him to experience the cruel nature of bullying. Once my son started attending Croft he was a different kid, his grades were back to A's, he had a positive attitude, more self-confidence, he got involved with sports & excelled, he made many friends & I finally saw the smile on his face again that had been gone too long. I never heard one complaint from him regarding a teacher, staff member or student. Croft Middle turned out to be a blessing for him & he flourished academically. Now he's a Freshman in college & doing great and my daughter is now currently enrolled in Croft & she's happy & doing well. I honestly cannot think of one negative comment. If I could change just one thing, I would have the car rider drop off line move a bit quicker in the mornings & I'd do that by having both car lanes open for drop off rather than only one. But that's my only complaint & I can live with that. I would recommend this school to anyone. I've been inside the school many times & I cannot recall ever seeing an unhappy student. Great teachers, nothing but positive experiences! An all around awesome school!
