i'm a mms student in the sixth grade. it has now been rebuilt and it is a very good school. my math teacher, Mrs, Dunn is awesome. she will help you with anything. and my language arts teacher, Mrs. Renner is also very good. she connects with the students and makes learning fun! i love both of the teachers very much!

This school is very small but gives students the education one on one. Teachers here make students want to learn.

I actually think MMS is a good school. I personally use to go there and I loved it. Everybody there is so nice and makes sure you know what's going on. It just needs to be rebuilt. That's all.

I think that MMS is a very poor school. Starship Troopers in 7th grade have some of the best teachers Ever! Mrs. Jones is a very good one. This year they made AYP and they are very proud of it! The school is in a bad area and needs BADLY to be rebuilt. I mean its been there since the 50's come on now?

I think MMS is a poor school. It needs to be rebuilt or fixed. It is really old. I even went to school there and I'm now 34. I love the teachers there even my daughter likes them, but it's just the school I don't like.

I think that M.M.S is in the process of being an execeptionly good school. The foundation is already there. First of all you have a principal that was teaching when i was in school, and he was a very good teacher. being concerned about the students well being was always his concern and i see that he still carries this interest even after 20 years ago when i was in school. i don't know too many of the faculty personally but the ones that i have came in contact with so far has the students best intrest at heart, they seem to be determined to help our children excel in academics.i would like to see the school in a better location as a lot of the other parents would, but right now we work with what we have and i really do commend and support the principal and his staff. -

I have a daughter in this school, after moving from out of state, I wish I had found a better located school to place my child in. I think they should move the middle school to an area without a housing project. The location for the elementary school is great. Also, everyone under the 9th grade has uniform policy, the highschoolers are the ones half dressing, why does the uniform policy not include the highschoolers.

The building is old and poorly located. But the educational experience especially in math is good. School principal is a good guy. Other administrative personnel are at times indifferent. Nothing here should scare you off.

Posted September 29, 2003

Although there is a uniform program in place, disipline seems to be a problem at this school. It is located in the midst of a housing project and a very poor neighborhood. I have a daughter attending this school. I plan to remove her as soon as possible.
