The only good thing about mebane is the office staff. I would recommend getting a zoning exemption if you are zoned for the school. My child was unsuccessful and extremely unhappy there.

Mebane is wonderful. With one child in the gifted classes, and another in regular curriculum, I always worry how the two will be treated. They are both very happy. They like their teachers, and they have met many new friends. Last year we had low numbers in PTO, but I see this increasing already. The two administrators and front office were very helpful when we came to Mebane. The teachers all responded to my emails at the beginning of the year.

My son left Mebane Middle School after Spring Break and is now going to Oak View Middle School in Newberry. Slowly my son is recovering from Mebane's total chaos that took place in January 09. He is now getting straight B's which is an awesome improvement to last qtr. at Mebane. I thank God my son was able to transfer to a new school at such a late date. It saved his academic grades. Two other kids from Mebane also transferred that same day to Oak View. That speaks volumes to me about Mebane's poor administration!

It was very disturbing to me about the change of classes in 'january' why then ? My daughter was doing just wonderful in her classes. She was getting a's in math with a wonderful caring math teacher, very attentive with their teaching and now my daughter is back to getting 'c's' in math. It seems like a few things are being put on the way side here and it is our children s education at stake. It seems like everyone is putting their tails between their legs and going through the motions and not really caring anymore. What happened here ? I know there are rules and regulations but cant people actually be themselves and really care about our students and their education ? I miss the days of chet saunders and dan mcvale.

My son has a very different view of the principal. He believes that the principal is very caring. She attends most of the students extra curricular activities. She speaks to all of the students as she passes them on the side walk. He likes her very much.

The princepal at a.l.mebane middle school has no support for the kids and does not care about them , and does not want to help the kids out. Also, she does not want kids to have a little freedom when she has bad days . some kids and staff think that she does not want to be there because she has a very bad temper problem with kids at that school. If we were to have a good princepal then i think that our school would have a better standard.

I am a teacher at Mebane Middle School and was disappointed to see such negative ratings and comments about our school. Teachers care very much and provide an excellent education for students. We have always been an 'A' or 'B' school. You want the best for your child? Mebane is the place for you! Come see for yourself.

I had heard terrible things about this school but having gone there myself I did not even hesitate to send my son there. After two semesters I pulled him out because a couple of his teachers just didn't seem to care about the kids at all so I home schooled him for a year. He just recently went back and it is back to the same old thing. I just spoke to one of his teachers about having a meeting about my son's learning disablities and she couldn't get me off the phone fast enough. She just kept saying OK, OK we will talk about it then. I wanted to ask her 'Are you even listening? Do you even care?' I am furious. I should have listened. I have talked to several parents and they all same the same thing- this school is terrible and the teachers just don't care!

The majority of the teachers have been very helpful. There have been several that I thought should not be in the teaching field. The admistrative staff has been willing to help us when we have issues to deal with.

I have not been happy with any aspect of this school since transferring my child. I am still trying to figure out what they are actually teaching. I have heard numerous complaints that the kids are unruly and would not advise this school!
