We love this school. We had apprehensions when applying for the gifted program because the school had a bad reputation but the school is great. My son loves it and the teachers are wonderful. I would definitely recommend this school.
The new principal, Mr. Hernandez, is phenomenal! My child has attended this school for 2 years and is in the 8th grade this year. I can't say enough about how fantastic our experience has been. Academics are stellar, communication with parents has never been better, and school pride is everywhere. My son will be more than ready for high school after going to MFMS and we will be sad to have to move on. Go Phantoms!
a terrible place to be. fights break out at least once a day. people get jumped because they look at one of the people in the usual group of pants-sagging uncultured swines the wrong way. i can say personally that, especially in the gym locker rooms, since there isn't even a sound monitoring system, bullying is everywhere. the principal never leaves her office. people are issued referrals and other consequences, but they are almost never processed so that MFMS doesn't look like a bad school. us students are treated like trash, by both the staff (excluding most of the teachers) and the jerks running around everywhere. and APPARENTLY, it's more important to get a new microwave and stove in every teacher's lounge then to invest some money into bullying prevention programs, new television production equipment to replace the frayed and busted originals, or to fix the lights. honestly the three years i was forced to attend here were the worst three years of my life.
