MCMS will cause your kids to have anxiety, depression and self confidence issues. Oakpark is trying to make a good name for the school to assure they can attract students from other districts since the population of school age students is downin Oakpark. According to the Stanford Study that was performed in 2013, MCMS was number one in lack of sleep since they keep the middle school students up until 11PM most night for all the busy work. Keep your childeren out of Oakpark if you want to keep your childern healthy for life.

MCMS is a fabulous middle school. The staff and parents work well with each other to ensure that the students have the necessary materials required to achieve greatness.

Our 7th grade twins love this school. Everyone (from teachers and coaches to the entire administration) is committed to the students well being and education. This school 100% prepares the students for high school.

I wholeheartedly disagree with your assessment of this school. I think if you look at any surrounding schools in the area, you will see that Medea is among the most progressive with heavy implementation of the Common Core State Standards and has been for the last couple of years. There are NO research based texts available yet, as the CCSS have not been fully implemented and won't be for at least the next year. Sure, there are plenty of publishers claiming to be aligned, but they are not proven and purchasing anything at this time is not best practice. It appears you are looking for high school level teacher qualifications in a middle school setting. I don't think you will find that anywhere. The teachers are very well qualified and all are credentialed. As a parent, I am offended by your negative post about this wonderful school.

For those who consider moving to Oak Park because of "great schools" Things to check before the move 1. Teachers qualification. MCMS doesn't release much info on teachers, but available data is pretty upsetting. Out of 5 Math teachers 2 don't have ANY math or technical degree. None of the teachers got a degree from a reputable public university. There are no History/Social Studies teachers. These subjects are taught by the Language Arts teachers. 2. Curriculum. The school did not adopt the common core standard (which is very decent). The text book the school uses for Algebra "Algebra Connections" by Tom Sallee is not the best choice. Actually it is probably the one of worst choice. Not surprisingly, since the school teachers are very far from mathematics. The fact that the last edition of the book is 2006 is a red flag already. Popular textbooks get republished often. History/Language Arts/Social Studies/Science are taught using the standard California edition text books, nothing fancy, nothing extra. All efforts are put into getting high CST scores, no effort is "wasted" by teaching anything beyond the test questions. 3. Honor classes. MCMS doesn't offer any honor classes.

I love this Medea Creek Midle School, the teachers are great and easy to talk to in person and also by email, wich I find really convenien, the staff is so helpful on any question or inquire. As a parent I appreciate the involment of the Principal and Staff in the morning, keeping the children safe and most important making sure that the traffic not an obstacule for the children to get to school on time. The way that Madea is well thought is that they have the libary right in the heart of the school, where all the kids have to walk to go to the lokers and more, and them Books are not hiden in a big room, the books are expose to them every single day, I belive about visual and I think is fantastic. The children have their own hidration stations in the school, purified water for them to drink as they need, in other School by law they have to flash the fountain water in the morning to prevent levels of plomo. They tought about everything, less water bobles coming from home, we are looking forward a great Year at Madea Creek Midle School. I like like the way this year the school had the Madea Camp for the new children, that was a big plus, and they make the 8th graders participate.

3. Electives. Yes, school has a great list of elective classes. But don't expect your daughter to study French and your son to be enrolled into Robotics. Popular electives are reserved to the "friends and families" of the school administrations. Regular students are randomly assigned to unpopular elective classes. 4. Traffic. If you want to see what nightmare looks like, drive near MCMS around 8AM. Of course administration is not 100% to blame for the current traffic disaster. The school wasn't planned to have 1000 of cars coming at the same time every morning. In addition Doubletree road has no crosswalks and no bumps/humps which adds to hazardous traffic conditions. 5. PTA. Unlike other schools where PTA monitors the quality of education at MCMS PTA has just one responsibility: to find the most create and useless ways of spending money donated by parents. 5. Donations/Cost. Slightly more than average LA area public school. Initial donation is $150 for the district, $175 for the school plus you will receive regular requests for donations during the year. In addition the district asks to a pay $40 for each day your child misses school.

This school is not the perfect school it looks like from the outside. As student here, I can tell you that this school is not what thought it would. Many kids in 8th grade do drugs. The attitude of all the people in the school are very rude and disrespectful.The kids are immature and very snobby as well. The rules, especially the dress code, are harsh and pointless. The administration makes a big deal out of the smallest things just to prove that they have the power. The teachers do not teach very well and the academics are hard so it's hard very students to learn. I realize most of what I learn I have to teach myself. Don't let high test scores fool you into thinking this is a good school. I wouldn't recommend this school to any student. Please do not send them here.


Posted February 3, 2013

I love this school for the students and the teachers. I have some amazing teachers and so many friends. However, when it comes to getting the help I need from the administration, or speaking out for a cause, the students as a whole mostly get pushed aside. The administration only notices you if you have good grades and go above and beyond the expectations. I tried to start independent P.E. because I do sports and it would really help my grade, but they wouldn't let me. Apparently, you have to have your elective and gym time back-to-back. Having a free period to do my homework in the middle of the day when I should have P.E. would help my grade significantly, but no, I can't. There are so many stupid rules and regulations that actually in someways limit learning, which is the whole reason people come to school.


Posted February 2, 2013

Medea is a good school if your child is a high achiever. If your child is average or below, do not expect much help or support from the teaching staff or leadership. The main emphasis is on maintaining the high standardized test scores that make the school look good. The teaching staff is adequate but no real standouts that go above and beyond. Parent/teacher communication is a problem although every teacher stresses how accessible and transparent they are. Unless you ask often how your child is doing and if there any issues, the teachers will not give you any feedback. Don't expect much support from leadership if an issue arises between teacher and student. The teacher will always win regardless of the circumstances. The community and parents are great but just make sure you talk to parents of all student types before you decide to enroll. Do not be seduced by the high test scores.

Could not ask for a better school! All staff is accessible and it is very easy for kids who are new to meet others. This school is the answer to our prayers. Perfect blend of classes, staff and students. The parental involvement is above and beyond. The Parent Faculty Assoc. has been able to fund many things that were cut due to the state budget including the Librarian (who is a gem and vital to all students and staff).

We are new to Oak Park and Medea Creek, but so far, so good. We have received nothing but warmth from everyone, the PFA President, to the School Principle and Vice-Principle to everyone in the main office and especially from the teachers. Back to school night last week was amazing and very organized. So far this school runs like a private school and the expectations of the kids academically, emotionally is very high, which my husband and I appreciate greatly. Most importantly, we loved the devotion & enthusiasm displayed formt he teachers at back to school night last week. We look forward to an amazing year!!

I hate this school! This is honestly a bad school. The kids here make everyone feel insecure.This school is full of groups and most of the groups are so mean. Half of the school does drugs! Even some 6th graders! The dean is trying to have us wear uniforms! I have been at this school since 6th grade and i'm not a bad kid. Its my last year here but i'm planning on transferring to Lindero Canyon Middle School! If you don't want your kid to be insecure about themselves then dont have your kids go to this school!


Posted March 15, 2012

I think it's a great idea to have uniforms if this is what the principal wants to do. Based on the below complaint of the kids being spoiled, this levels the playing field. I too transfered from another district: Calabasas actually. I really enjoy the fact that the kids get individualized attention and are far more down to earth than where we live. Oak Park in general has become our second home and we look forward to many more years to come!

Posted February 20, 2012

Mcms is not the school it was when it was awarded blue ribbon status. My daughter told me the new dean is pushing for uniforms and will allow only 2 kids to walk together at a time. The principal is a great guy, and his hands are tied. I do not think our school has a gang problem unless its Iphone4 vs Iphone4s discrimination.....:) We have mostly upper middle class, credit poor inhabitants. Our kids get more than most. Spoiled. Nouveau riche! After reading these previous comments on your site, I think some of these parents must be blind. The teachers union seem to be an issue here, they have teachers in the OPUSD that need to go, the school district just puts their head back in the sand. Please, people in Malibu aren't as uptight and judgmental as this unfortunate little housing development.

Should be a model school for the rest of California. The administration runs on the principle that kids are accountable for their behavior and their grades. The Principal, Dean and Assistant Principal along with staff ensure these kids are learning. My son has flourished here. Acheiving Honor Roll here is no easy feat, but knowing you've made it is a great reward.

It doesn't get any better than this. Great School. They care about all the students. We drive from another district to go here. The technology is top notch. The PE department has heart monitors and stationary bikes. The administration is wonderful. The teachers care about the students and go out of their way to help. My dauther was behind after being in the Thousand Oaks School District but the teachers helped her catch up. This is the best school system in the area public or pribate.

Posted May 11, 2010

There are some really incredible teachers who are engaged with the students. If you have questions, you can e-mail the teachers and they actually respond. The Assistant Principal is a very even keel person who is thoughtful and thinks through issues to resolve them beneficially for all. I think the principal knows the name of every child in the school.

Posted April 17, 2010

Overall, I am very happy with the school. The teachers and administration are great! The principal & vice-principal are very 'hands on.' My children transferred from private school, where they had 3+ hours a homework a night. At Medea, the homework load is much lighter, maybe only 20-45 minutes a day. This enables them to be happier and to 'have a life' outside of school. I have heard no stories of bullying, or kids misbehaving badly. I feel that my kids are very safe at Medea. The one thing I don't like is that they don't let kids take their tests home. Thus, parents never get to see them. This is because teachers use the same tests year after year. However, I wish this was not the case, as I'd like to see how my children are doing. I am very happy we made the switch from private school to Medea.

My kids are getting a great education. They learn beyond what is in the book. Their academic and personal achievements grow on a daily basis! When a child is absent, communication with the teachers has been excellent!

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. 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. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.
