My son just started at this school, and I'm impressed. Middle school was scary to me. After coming from such a great elementary school, I was sure this was going to be hard. Boy was I wrong. The staff is friendly. The teachers are caring and one can tell the morale is high. Those teachers go above and beyond to communicate with parents. The Principal and rest of administration are excellent! He knows every kid, and demonstrates the love for his job every day. He is visible and treats all with respect. The band is amazing as well. My son is flourishing and getting a well-rounded education at MLM.

I like this school. I am a 7th grade student and am pleased with the teachers, But find the mandatory Cambridge shirts a pain. They give you a referal if caught without the shirt, and during last lunch they come and release slowly table by table, which I find time wasting. The science class for cambridge is 9th grade honors, so we have too much to do in 2 hours, and almost never finish.

i have been in this school since 6th grade. im a 8th grader now. the teachers (except 2 or so) are very caring . the principal jsut changed and its VERY strict now and OVER exxagerate over little things like clearing halls two mintues before the bell rings and last lunch realasing and wasting time so your late to class sometimes. but when it comes to teachers its awesome, but sorry i think after this year its not exactly the best school and for the person that said 8th graders don't have respect- its jsut were not use to the new enforcement. we find it unreasonable.

As of 2010, mlms has gone down the pipe honestly. There's been a lot of changes and the lack of responsibitly has gone off the walls. I think the only good thing in this school is the adv/gifted teachers they are mostly the ones that work hard to teach children. Futher more, mlm's students don't have much respect in this 2009-2010 year. Due to that, many clubs and events had been cancelled this year like the 8th grade prom ! that's crazy ! imagine how it would be like after 2010. Thank god, my daughter finnaly graduated from there already. Don't recommend mlms at all sorry.

As a former teacher @ MLMS I believe the admin. is on the right track and they have great intentions. In every school you will fnd teachers who should not be there but before i cont. some of the teachers @ MLMS are OUTSTANDING..

Great school! No drama club though, which they used to have one that was great. A mix of good kids and bad kids, but a great advanced gifted program for those smart kids.

Good academic programs for gifted students. But less than adequate programs for the rest of the student body.

my son is not a gifted or super academic, thank god. he gets avg grades. we encourage him to try harder. since this is middle school, the age group is 11-14. at this age, these kids need all the help they can get. there is no or poor tracking of the students progress. i have lost many hairs working with teachers and admins via email, confrences and phone calls with barely average results. parents need way more help in tracking their progress and making adjustments. often the adjustments, if any, are way too late.

My son started in 6th grade this year and needless to say I was a little nervous. However, for all those parents who are like me, if you get involved in your child's school you get a first hand look at how they are running it. I did and I am very pleased to say that the teachers and the administration of this school are trying very hard to make this a great school and it shows. But you've got to be a part of it. Try to get involved. It really helps and the school will benefit from your help.

My child and my experience the past two years have been great. There is always alot of adult presence and supervision. The staff at the school is helpful and very cooperative. They have made it a very enjoyable. I know my new 6th grader will have the same experience.
