I am extremely happy with the school. My child due to a recent illness needed special care while at school. The school has been extremely helpful. We relocated here & previously attended private school. This school is superior to the private school. My child is in advanced/honor classes. This is an excellent school.

I have participated in every academic team available, and have thoroughly enjoyed every single one. MSMS is known for its exceptional teachers and administrators that provide a quality education throughout the middle years. Its academic teams and advanced course offerings have provided me with an ample amount of opportunities to succeed!

The school and the entire system are on a steady decline and have been for the last few years. Math is stressed to exclusivity, while ALL other subjects are relegated to less than secondary status. Fewer than 1% of people actually use calculus/advanced math forms ever in their entire lives. Many college bound seniors from this system know that, depending upon major course of study, they can get by with ONE math course in college, but ALL universities require FOUR English classes and still more of the social sciences. The students appear to be getting cheated out of the ability to communicate effectively and develop critical thinking skills that will affect everything they do. Administration is more concerned with their math score rankings than with the broad education of students. Board of Ed. is detached and unaware of what's transpiring. But for awhile at least, it's still best in area.

This is a very good school, my son has been going there for 3 years, there are some minor problems, but, its probably due to the fact that teacher student ratio, need more teachers per students. But over all good school, also if you don't wear the right clothes the kids will harass you, they do have a fulltime police officer on duty but, kids are still taking knives to school and talking about guns. It is not a violent school atmosphere, but policing the school should be more frequent. I think were taking the school safety issue for granted hoping nothing gets out of control, instead of using preventive measures before anything bad happens.
