There is a lot of improvement that needs to be made at this school especially in the areas of leadership and teachers who should no longer be teaching. There is too much emphasis on preparing for standardized testing.

I have had children at MMS for the last 6 years. My older son experienced bullying, which is going to happen in middle school no matter where you go. I approached his guidance counselor who documented the situation and worked to resolve the conflict. The situation improved somewhat, but when other incidents occurred the vice principal got involved and it stopped completely. We should have gone to the guidance counselor sooner. They need documentation so that they can step in. For the most part, I I found the faculty to be caring and attentive. Great office staff!

Weakest school in Region 15. The principal and vice principal need to retire. The staff has no respect for them, and the children have no respect for the staff. The staff looks the other way and likes to blame parents for everything. A child will fall behind and no one will care. The bullying is horrendous. Not quite sure why because the rest of Region 15 seems pretty good. Have to blame the administration for that. Teachers also seem miserable.

I look back at a review from 2007 and I find that the same holds true today. Teachers are okay, but students are snotty and have no idea that there is a world out there. everyone is the from the same socio-economic backround, and so they all act as if everyone is rich. The staff is pretty bad; The principal does nothing and the vice principal is incompetent. Bullying is rampant throughout the school, and the kids are sliced up into nonnegotiable cliques. If you live in Middlebury, send your children to private school instead; it will be worth the money.

I'm not impressed at all with this school. The transition from 5th to 6th grade is horrible. The teachers are never available to talk. There is no voicemail system set up, which makes it difficult to leave teachers messages. Leadership is weak. No communication between the teachers. Kids can be mean and no one seems to do anything about that, but look the other way. It's very run down and overall the staff seems miserable. Middle school years are hard enough without having all these problems added to it. Disappointing for an affluent community.

I am a student at Memorial Middle school and I think overall it is a fairly good school. Two major things that I would change about the school are the lack of diversity and no honors or gifted and talented programs. I really think the children there need to interact with different people from different social and economic backrouds. Second, kids who are ahead of their grade or age group have no chance to advance at their own pace. They are held back. Really there is no excuse for this because trust me they have some money! All in all this schools is great but with a little change it could be fantastic!
