Handles bullying effectively: Strongly disagree


- a
They seem to like to pretend it doesn't exist.

Effective school leaders: Strongly disagree


- a
Per previous comments, re: bullying. The admin turns a blind eye, particularly when it involved popular kids or connected parents.


Develops character: Strongly disagree


- a
Bullying is out of control, and the adminstration doesn't care.

Amount of homework: Strongly disagree


- a
There are no textbooks, and virtually no support for students who have questions. Assignments, in particular ones that are submitted electronically, are often "lost" and the student is punished.

I currently have an 8th grader attending this school. I would strongly advise against transferring your child into this school from another school/state. The administration doesn't care about bullying, and turns a blind eye to physical assaults. The teachers are solid for the most part, although there are more than a couple that are counting the days to retirement and do nothing to help the kids. All in all, a very disappointing experience for what is supposed to be a "good" school.

This school is OK. There are a handful of great teachers, some good teachers and more than a few that should find a new career. I'm sure this is the case in most schools. Unfortunately in the last 2 years they have lost a few of the great ones and have replaced them with mediocre ones. They've also moved teachers around into different subjects, which is OK if they are qualified and experienced, but is the social studies teacher really qualified to teach Theater Arts (no, not at all)? Manhattan is the most diverse of all middle schools, which I like, coming from a big city. If your child likes the Arts, it is likely a good fit.

My son, who is extremely motivated academically, and a TAG student, thrived at MMS. In fact, it was a life changing, for the positive, for him. We switched him half way through 7th grade, and he slid right in. He was well prepared for a rigorous high school with all IB classes, and is continuing to thrive in high school. He had some exceptional teachers. Though he feels he could have had better prep in Science he is still thriving in science in HS (IB course too). Yes, of course there is drama here and there, but there is enough diversity that you can be yourself and find friends who are great for you. I LOVE the principal. She is open minded and cares deeply for the kids and the school. It is a place where kids can thrive. I love the diversity. It's really hard to find that in our school district, as well as a place where middle school kids say more often than not, that they love their middle school - which is what I heard from the MMS kids I asked.

Wonderful school; very accepting of all types of diverse students. Principal is amazing and caring and staff is some of the best in Boulder. Our son has thrived in advanced math (has skipped 2 grade levels) and advanced Language Arts. He is thriving, happy, and loves school. One of the few middle schools in Boulder with National Junior Honor Society and TAG program.

amzingly kid friendly and has exelent art programs. students are kind there are never any fights and kids feel free



- a
Students at the High School this school feeds into says kids from here are woefully prepared for high school compared to the those from other schools that feed in . The school does not differentiate students in language and had to be prodded strongly to provide an accelerated 7/8 math class this year after not having once since they were formed. Many parents of kids more academically inclined are desperately trying to open enroll out or move. It is the principal who drives the lack of academics.
