Some of the teachers are excellent, so are the magnet programs but they should consider taking the elective programs seriously. My child has dance but isn't magnet, they never dance which discourages even trying to improve and join magnet. Also teachers need to take initiative, if a student does poorly and you notice they still are after sending notes to parents, how about a phone call or email? Instead of doing the bare minimum as a teacher take the 5 secs to email a parent, maybe we aren't getting the notes, I accept that means my child doesn't bring them home, but if I am unaware I can't act on the issue.I mean here it is end of the year and I find out nothing was done for a quarter?! Is that even possible?! Why couldn't I be emailed or called? Not to mention they dont tell parents about the REAL issues this school is still having like arrested 7th graders because they got intoxicated on school premises, students who constantly cause fights or checking all students with metal detectors, these are serious matters we should be told about, honestly how serious is checking backpacks/lockers/ and actual students?? Something was up and we weren't informed!
ilovethis school but the magnet program need to imp[rove dont get me roung there all good students and have wonderful talents but the beginers should get chance to show there talent because some of those kids are actually there because that might be there dream like me am there because its my dream to be an actress thank you
The magnet programs at this school are EXCELLENT. You wouldn't have to worry about the quality of your childs education if he/she were enrolled in one of the magnet programs or advanced classes you can be sure your child is receive good quality education. Extracurricular activities help too. I have nothing but good memories from mays. I was envolved with nothing but good students and made the best of friends.
Mays middle is a great learning school.It's a very safe and discipline school. They have great programs before as well as after school that our kids could take advantage. Stop by sometimes an see for yourself, don't just take my word for it.
