If the "review" I just read was in regards to the incident I witnessed in the office earlier in the week I found it very disheartening. Although I am not aware of the circumstances, I found it appalling the way the parent was treated by the Maypot employee. If the parent was treated in such a manner in front of other parents, how are these children being treated. behind closed doors? This is my chids last year at MCSM and I don't recall ever seeing this older woman before.
Love this school, however the new (2014-2015) Dean of Students leaves little to be desired. If your looking for help, understanding or compassion with a problem, avoid her at all costs, other than that, love it!
I have visited Mayport Middle School several times this year in order to better understand its approach to teaching as a Coastal Science Magnet School. Through my conversations with staff and my observations of student engagement, I have found it to be a wonderful learning facility. It is disheartening that its perception by others is outdated because many in our community are missing out on a real gem !
Our local middle school that continues to make changes to achieve academic excellence with our children, and helping those interested in doing well in school to be well.prepared for their high school.years!
Mayport Middle is a amazing school to work with. The teachers are preparing students with real world scientific research experience. Students will be prepared for high school and, more importantly, beyond.
Mayport Coastal Science Middle School is outstanding because of the teachers & their positive attitudes that help students explore, learn and get involved in their school & neighborhood. This academic year witnessed a large growth of students choosing to come to Mayport MS because of it's coastal science program. What I like is the "hands on" approach that permeates the school & immerses the students in a real world education. The students take great pride in working on projects that give back to their community. Ongoing projects: an aquaculture "business" raising marketable fish; raising dune vegetation for transplanting in a Jacksonville Park on the Atlantic Ocean; producing, writing, researching, editing and daily broadcasting of school related videos in-house & on the internet; maintaining and enhancing an on-campus nature trail that circles the school and it's pond. What I am hoping for is more people & businesses to recognize the talent & quality of the education available at Mayport Coastal Science Middle School - Atlantic Bch, FL. I urge citizens to visit the various on-campus events showcasing the talent and "cool" things the students are learning. Go Sharks !!!!
I have been associated with Mayport Coastal Sciences Middle School for seven years and I can honestly this is a family and student centered school. It is a richly diverse neighborhood school with a magnet theme. The administrators and staff are committed to making the student's middle school experience safe and academically challenging. The acceleration courses have prepared many of the students for acceptance into the high school AICE, IB, and AVID programs.
