I went to this school for 3 years of middle school. I graduated in 2006. This school is really bad. There are a lot of fights in this school and also a lot of gang activity. The people here are trouble makers to others. The teachers are really good though.

This school isn't as bad as most people say. As long as the students know who to be around. I'm currently attending the 7th grade in this school. The teachers are very strict. Honestly I don't think they are very fair. I don't like how judgmental they can be. Most of the teacher give unnecessary phone calls and add extra FAKE complaints. If you give students more freedom and let them know they will be rewarded for doing good, they would be more than willing to obey. There is also a bullying problem. Teachers should be more aware and be understanding of bullying.

I actually loved the school. At first I was scared. But I met some awesome friends and teachers! The teachers really helped me out! I got better grades than ever!

I think that MS 226 is like the worse school. I'm a six grader going in to seventh. The kids are annoying and the teachers are OK, but if you tell a teacher that someone hit you, they don't do anything about it. You can see how bad this school is because a few weeks before school closed, they banned taking water to school and drinking from the fountains. One more thing, this school is also really dirty and they have no A.C. The school is always hot, and you can only go to the bathroom a few time in a whole week. I'm not lying to you. I didn't make this up. I hope this helps you to make the right choice for your school.

MS 226 Virgil I. Grisson Middle School is OK, Mar 16, 2010
I currently attend this school and I'm in 7th grade in the humanities academy. I like the school but the teachers call the students names and then you get picked on. I don't like the teachers and they also call your house for no reason. Some teachers need to get fired :[

MS 266 Virgil I. Grissom Middle School, Feb 25, 2010
I am currently still attending Virgil I. Grissom and though people have left side comments saying my school is in fact a bad school that is out of control, to me this school teaches us how to stand up for ourselves and show us how to work on our weak points. Therefore I believe by next year MS 226 will be a school that various and multiple people will like to attend because of our high scores. And also our grades might not be the sharpest tool in the shed but our school works hard to achieve this goal with the dedicated teachers and staff that take their time to show us what to do.

Everything children say about the school is wrong; how can a school be bad first of all? Next, the students of this school are not even bad, the majority of students attend the school for the right purposes. It's true that we don't have the best textbooks or supplies but we use what we have to make the best of children. Majority of students who graduate from that school become someone important and that's what the school strives for.

MS 226 Virgil Grission Middle School, Nov 13, 2009
I'm a 7th grader that gets B`s and A's. This school is terrible. Most of the students don't learn and rather fight. I want to switch schools. That's how bad it is. But the teachers are good.

MS 226 Virgil Grisson Middle School, Oct 20, 2009
I am an 8th grader attending this terrible school and my knowledge so far in this school is that it has a lot of gang violence and it has bad kids that like to fight a lot.... Most of the kids in this school are trouble makers, they don't go to school to learn, they go there because it makes them feel tough and better about themselves when in reality they are nothing. A lot of kids that attend this school mostly cut class and drop out.
