Veterans Memorial Middle School 2

My son attended 6th grade at this school. Academically it was okay. He was in all advanced classes for the core subjects, and yet didn't feel challenged. Communication with the school is non-existent. The first sign of this was the fact that all local school supply stores had lists from other middle school, but not Veterans. Unlike other local middle school, there is no weekly email communications. we found out about the clubs the school had when we received the yearbook and saw all the pictures. How is a 6th grader supposed to join a club of we don't know about them? When I called the school about it and asked for some form of weekly communication be sent to parents, I was asked "what would we write every week? What would you like to know?" Really??? Why don't you ask what the other middle schools are doing? And to finish the school year, my son's phone was stolen. I spent an entire morning speaking with a police officer and all I was able to retrieve was the phone's chip. No police report, no court date, and the boy who stole the phone received no punishment. Although we were impressed with the teachers we met during open house (the only time we were invited to the school), the lack of partnership between home and school and the lack of communication show that the staff may be burned out and looking for the easiest way to get through the school year, as opposed to thinking with creativity and passion "how can we make this school remarkable?" It's very sad.

I used to go to this school. I wasn't too satisfied with this school. I was bullied often and the school was there to help me up until my 8th grade year. All reports I gave about bullying were never solved. The school did absolutely nothing to stop them. The bullies kept doing what they were doing. The worst part was that the bullies actually manipulated me and tricked the school into thinking I did something bad (when I didn't) and I got in trouble for it. The education there is really good but everything else is terrible. Send your child to another school.

My son entered the MCSS as an eigth grader at VMMS. He had some adjustment issues and the school personal was so kind at helping & encouraging him. They tested him & placed him in the gifted program giving him more challenges and he did well. They also worked with his special needs by helping his self esteem, social skills & general needs. Dr. Brenda Thomas (VP) and many of the staff were invaluable to me as a parent. Always encouraging, solution minded & kind. My son wasn't the perfect "cookie cutter" child and this school helped valid him, it was all we could have hoped for. We truely loved his year there!

Veterans is the best school I have been to yet. The teachers made sure that I passed, and taught me everything I need to know! It's like a second family to me.

This school is the best!!! Even though this is the first year that this school has been open, it far exceeds any other middle school in the county. The entire staff is dedicated to caring for the whole student. The administration cannot be beat. Veterans has so much to offer any student whether it is academics, sports, or club involvement. I see teachers at the school way into the night. This is true dedication. I am very fortunate that my child gets to experience Veterans for all three middle school years. Keep up the great work!
