It's the first year my daughter is attending to this school and she loves it. I really like the school loop where you can keep track of your kids grades and communicate with the teachers. So far she has only A's and she is doing cross country after school. The staff is super nice and helpful. The teachers seem to give a reasonable amount of homework to the students and my daughter says that they are very good. The most important for me is that my little girl looks forward to go to school every morning and to have good grades, so they must be doing things right.
It's a great school .The office staff and the teachers are very caring and committed.They have many fun activities for the students throughout the year,also they have fun elective classes .
CongratulationS for the 2012 API success! Principle, Great job! Teachers, Great Jobs! Students and parents, keep going! This great school made such great progress in last two or three years! We have checked the details of the school API report, we can see that among the groups score, the Asian is 983, White are 927, it so incredible! As we can see the other large group hispanic and Latin are 752. We are wondering if we can do something about this sub group of students? To ask their parents friends to help them to catch up with the the upper groups? It only took three year come today's 865 from 763 for the whole school. So, Hispanic and Latino students can also make this happen in the next two or three years. please, please just do it, students and parents, teachers and principle!
Fantastic school. Great campus, friendly environment, INCREDIBLY dedicated teachers, plenty of extracurriculars and ways to succeed, great academic programs, and overall the best way to prepare for high school.
My son graduated from MMS two years back and he had a good experience. The teachers are very dedicated and experienced. There is good discipline, and a strict dress code is enforced. The classes are challenging and there is a lot of homework. Students and parent can sign up for SchoolLoop to receive an email daily regarding weekly homework assignments, upcoming tests and current grades. This really helps students stay on top of assignments and tests, and parents can get a good idea of what their child is studying in class. There are wonderful electives for students to choose from, such as debate and dialogue, and theater arts.
I currently have two children enrolled at MMS, in 6th and 8th grade. MMS makes every effort to give each student the opportunity to succeed. Each child is tracked, intervention occurs quickly to head off any problems, and if they show signs of readiness, are moved ahead as quickly as they can handle. This is one of the many reasons they MMS has been recognized nationally. I feel very confident my children will be prepared for whatever High School brings.
MMS is horrible for special ed students. My son is high-functioning autistic and did well at Payne and Country Lane Elementary. Since he started at MMS he has been ruthlessly bullied by a band of kids who are also in the special ed program. I believe they are there not for learning disabilities but behavioral issues. Despite emails, calls and meetings with school administration, the bulling has continued including verbal abuse, stealing his backpack, pulling his shorts down in PE class, and other incidents. The school seems unwilling to expel these kids. My son is in a math class at the end of the day with these kids where the teacher has no control over them. There is no learning that goes on in the hour and a half long class, since the teacher constantly has to discipline the disruptive students. He informed me that he has reported these kids to the office but the problem still occurs. I am taking my son and moving him to EDS. This school has no support for special ed kids, and in my opinion is a toxic environment for them to be in.
Any school can have good kids and not that good kids. I think the API speaks a lot of a school 's overall performance. If you look at the school performance by supgroup statics from this site. You will get more idea of how majority students doing in this school . From the lastest API report , I saw one subgroup have average 960 score. Is it amazing ? Kids can be execellent in moreland middle. My kids told me they love the teachers in moreland. -- Parent
Clearly some kids can do well at any school, but this school had more negatives than positives for our family. We had to pull our child out half way through his 7th grade year due to teachers that were teaching classes they hadn't taught in 20 years, lack of classroom control and the inability to communicate the expectations for the class. My child always tests in the high 90 percentile after his excellent teaching at our local Country Lane Elementary School, but for some reason was getting Fs, Ds and C's from this school. We met with prinicipal, teachers and emailed back and forth about issues, but just never received any adequate help. We are sad that our tax dollars are no longer really going toward educating our kids. We have 4 kids and had to move each one of them out of the school district into Private school during the middle school years.
This school has fantastic, caring teachers and a great campus; the after-school programs and classes are terrific. The atmosphere is friendly and the leadership great. I would recommend this school to everyone in the area.
MMS is a terrific school with adiverse student population. Because of the diversity - both economic and ethnic - there are lots of opportunities for students to learn. Of my four children, two have graduated from MMS to go on to private high schools where they tested into honors classes in math, science and english. They were very well prepared for a college prep high school experience.
Moreland Middle School has provided my daughter with the utmost care, and she flourishes in all of her classes, thanks to the administration being to concrete and concise with their teaching.
My daughter, now in the 7th grade, has flourished at MMS. The curriculum is very challenging, there are a number of interesting electives from which to choose, the sports program is great and the staff is responsive, fun and focused on their job - teaching! MMS has a diverse student body, which I feel prepares our children for the real world. We have had a positive experience at MMS!
We love the pre-school program. Ms. Suzie is the best! She is positive and encouraging and the kids love her. She is teaching them that school and learning is fun! I couldn't have asked for a better experience for my kids.
MMS is fantastic and has very caring teachers and staff. My kids have made so many friends, and consider some to be life-long. All three of my kids have been kept challenged by Moreland schools, testing into high school honors courses in geometry, English, and biology. While many go on to well-respected Westmont and Prospect, many also go on to schools like St. Francis, Bellarmine, Presentation, Mitty, and Notre Dame. It is the perfect school for parents who want a well-rounded education taught by enthusiastic teachers. There have been a few stand-outs, especially Brian Conroy and Steve Lewis. We've never been unhappy with any teacher, and have found them all to be positive influences. Everyone is supportive. Parents want to volunteer, because it is such a pleasant place. Even the office staff is friendly!
this school is not a pretty bad school. i go here and its been the best time of my life. the teachers and staff are wonderful. its a pretty safe environment:]
This school very well organized. They provide a great program. Many students deserve to go to this school, but I think many of the students there can improve. I like the school, but the students can work harder. The school that I teach at is way better.
I love this school. My son thrived in this school. He is a gifted student and this school really provided the educational support needed to challenge him. The 6th grade math and science program was excellent. The language and arts was great and the teachers were very supportive. Now in 7th grade he is doing excellent with language- arts program. His grades are improved and he is challenged on daily basis.
I have mix feelings about this school. I had an unpleasant experience with the Dean s attitude and concerns about his quality as a staff. I felt I had to protect my son from the staff throughout the school year but my son overcame the situation and had a great year. The 6th grade language arts core program was excellent and the teachers were great.
We moved our son in the 7th grade here as They have a fantastic elective program that includes Performing Arts and Wood Shop. Mr. Conroy, Mr. Spag, make school wonderful. He is thrilled with his accelerated Math program and his core teacher.
