Currently a student, and people are fooling themselves if the don't think things like what is mentioned below don't happen at every school. MGM is an amazing school with a great teaching staff. Yes, some teachers aren't the best, but they honostely care for their students. High school is what you make it. I have thoroughly enjoyed all 4 of my years here from pep rallys, to football games and as well as in the class room. I wouldn't trade my high school years for anywhere else.
Im currently a student at mgm! Recently a teacher hit my a student and the office told him and his family they were to busy to deal with it! Also there is alot of bullying that goes on they wont do nothing about it so you have no choice to fight to get them to leave you alone! Then the principal will tell your parents just come up here next time the other student bother you. But when i went back up there he told me it wasnt his problem he could send me home if i cant handle it. So being a student there they dont care about you and they sugar coat everything when your parents go up there. Also teachers are really bad on choosing favorites. I dont suggest this school im trying my hardest to go to another!
I'm a former student of mgm & i have to say i loved my high school experience. I had excellent teachers & contrary to popular belief i got the attention & help i needed w/o being a "star athlete". My teachers also cared beyond the classroom. And as for the office administration they were always friendly. I think mgm is a great school. chanda perry-fillingame
I am a freshman at Mray G. and I find the school to be very mediocore. I also have a sister who attends school with me, and she personally hates it. The teachers and administrative staff spend more time on discipline and enforcing the uniform policy than teaching. If you don't wear socks 3 times, you get suspended. Yet if you get in a fight, they just write you up and go on with life. Some of this may be Mobile Counties fault, but I still think the school could focus more on teaching the students than rather if you're wearing socks or not!
I am currently a senior at MGM and just moved here at the first of my Jr. year from Arkansas. This school is a good school, it has a lot to offer a student...but feeding off of their students money, and taking advantage isnt the best thing. I do believe that a lot of teachers spend more time on disipline and uniforms than teaching and helping, but thats partly the adminstration in the office. Its like they go out looking for someone to yell at. When i came from, it was about the same size school, we didnt have uniforms, it cost us $5 to park for the year with a sticker, we didnt have class dues, and there was a lot less disipline, becaues students werent stressing out to get stuff done for the school that wasnt even their school work. I think this school could impove a little....
I am a current student at mgm and i must say that even though the academics are excellent.. But as I have read in the reviews so far, I must agree with some things that were said about my school. Teachers are more worried about discipline than education and I honestly don't thing this is right. So.. Keep going vikes..But make some improvements.. Please.
I graduated from MGM in 2004 and must say, I found the school mediocre at best. The teachers, for the most part, were more concerned with enforcing the uniform policy than teaching, unless you were an athlete, who, during my time there, could get away with anything. The office staff were often quite unfriendly as were the administration. I was never outright threatened. The extracurriculars catered to Christians and athletes for the most part. There were fair, very competent teachers who enjoyed their jobs, and they, during my time there, were Mr. Lambert, Mr. Fillingim, Ms. Churchwell-Clayton, Ms. Capers, Ms. Girod-Lambert, and Mr. Rose.
As a former graduate of Mary G. Montgomery, I would like to say that this school performs as well as it can for the area it is in. In the end, this school provides the educated professionals needed to help your child advance in life. However, as we all know, it is very much up to the parent to encourage the child and make it happen. 2002 Graduate
As a student of MGM I don't recommend this school to anybody, unless you're a cheerleader or a football player, because it seems to me that if you don't participate in some type of sport then the teachers really don't care. And i don't think it is at all fair that most of these cheerleaders and football players get away with more than the average person. This school focuses more on sports than it does on academics, and that is not setting a good example to the students.
