My oldest daughter attends and my youngest will be going there next year
—Submitted by a parent


Posted September 18, 2007

I very much enjoy my days at MMS. Zero Period Spanish is wonderful, as everyone in it has been learning Spanish since kindergarten at Morris Elementary. There are two computer labs, and the Technology Elective is brilliant. I recommend this school to any parent looking for a good education for their child.

Posted January 3, 2007

The staff and faculty at MMS are absolutely top-notch. Students' workload is fairly heavy, in my opinion, but a very good preparation for high school. They have switched to 'standards-based grading, from the traditional 'A, B, C, D, F' system, which has taken some getting used to. Excellent support for students who are struggling in different areas. I have been very pleasantly surprised by the quality education at this 'small town' school.

About these ratings

The test results by subgroup show how the designated group of students is performing in comparison to the general population.

Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California.
