Parent Amy's story

As my oldest child made the transition from elementary school to middle school, we were apprehensive about both his transition and the character of the school he was moving to – Githens Middle School. We found both to be an excellent experience. His 6th grade teachers made every effort to move their kids to a middle school mentality – both for studies and personal/social interactions. The team model for his core studies was great to introduce the kids to middle school – they gradually interacted with more of the school but felt at home with their core teachers.

As my child progressed through Githens, we were impressed with his core teachers for each grade, as well as the band instructor, Mr. Denny. Mr. Denny was a wonderful influence on my son, not only for learning a new instrument and music knowledge but also instilling an excellent work ethic. I believe that Githens was a great place for my son to attend middle school, and my youngest chose Githens for his middle school education. We are excited about another three years with Githens!
