I posted rating for this school last month but it was not posted. The school has a new principal . So I cannot say much about him he is just getting his bearings. After shadowing my child through each class. Most of the teachers are sincere and want their students to succeed. However I have found a few teachers that go too fast and don't slow down and take time to thoroughly go the course material.

This school has seen some incredible positive changes in the last 3 years. The passion and enthusiasm of the principal has been infectious and has breathed new life into Markham. The teachers, parents and students have joined forces to make important changes in the curriculum, safety and school spirit. New clubs and after school activities have been added to encourage all students to get more involved. The staff has spent countless volunteer hours to ensure there is something for every one. I have found parent input to be well received.

My daughter loves this school. The principal is always around and easy to talk to. You can email him and he gets back to you right away. The staff is young and have great ideas. The sports programs are great too.

The principal is fantastic. Under the new administration Markham is turning a new leaf. Great gains were made in last years testing. The school is safe and my child is happy.

Markham has strived to greatly improve and I believe the administration and teaching staff are achieving huge success. Most of the teachers my son has had, do their job for the love of teaching and give the students the tools needed to achieve their very best. They offer many different sport programs and find coaches who care as well. The Principal Mr. Nigel is doing a fantastic job. I have seen so many positive changes. No school is perfect but with the leadership Markham has, they will only continue to make high achiever's of our children with the desire to succeed.

Markham has really made powerful changes over the past couple of years. The new principal Marc Nigel is caring, dedicated, and committed to his students and his staff. The changes he has made with support from his teachers include a strong focus on improving the curricular design. This was proven in the results of last years standardized test scores recently released. Next years scores are expected to improve again without question. Marc Nigel and his staff are all team players and continuously work to improve 'education' for their students.

I don't think they listen to the parents on the childs needs. The new lunch system is very flawed. My child only gets about 10 minutes to eat. On minimum days he only gets about 5 min. The school acts like they always know what's best for the my child, and they don't. I feel at times they ignore my input.

Markham offers decent electives but is boosting the core academics. The administration is communicating more with the community. There are some great teachers and great use of technology.

Our son is in 6th grade currently attending Markham. We have been very pleased with the teaching staff. Our son never had an interest in science until this year. He has two science classes and has found a interest in science. The new Principal this year is doing a teriffic job and shows he does care about the students at Markham. We are very pleased that we made the change from private school to public with Markham. These teachers care and so does the administration. Go Markham!
