I had 2 children attend MCMS for 2 years. My kids had a horrible experience. I withdrew my kids, moved & put them in a new school where none of the issues I will state have ever happened. 1st the school is not welcoming. They do not keep parents involved or put out regular communications. The front staff is beyond rude & unprofessional. I witnessed them gossiping & being rude to parents. MCMS is overcrowded. That can't be debated. Its a fact. The classrooms are overcrowded to the point the kids can't bring backpacks into the classroom as there is no room. The classrooms are loud & the teachers are stressed out. You can hear teachers angry yelling in the halls. I witnessed teachers getting in students faces and streaming at them. Behavior problems, bullying and disruptive classrooms are the norm. Teacher- not returning emails or calls. I tried numerous times to speak & workout academic issues but couldn't get them to work with me.

Love the school My son is in the IEP program and they work with him. My son is able to meet with teachers for help before and after school. As far as people talking about the bully aspect. My son and his friends had a some bullies bothering them. He went to the vice principal and they handled it right away. The adminstration can't fix it if they don't know what's wrong. The bullies were dealt with, within 24 hours of the vic principal knowing. Great School.

I believe this school to be filled with caring teachers. I think the reviews that speak of it like a prison must have had a different experience than my child. The few problems that exist at this school, I could easily find another school with the same problems. Compared to some, I find the students to be respectful and the teachers and administration to be helpful. My only criticism is that I wish they would encourage mroe extra-curricular involvement. With that being said, they have an excellent band program that my 6th grader is currently enrolled in!

Excellent administration. Caring, motivating teachers, supportive learning environment. We love, love, love MCMS. My daughter has thrived at this school. She is involved in lots of clubs and extra curricular activities, so I'm not sure what the other reviewer was referring to. Top-notch.

I really would have expected more out of this school. My oldest daughter had a hard time adjusting to MCMS. They seem to not want to give the kids at this age much independence. There aren't many extra curricular activities available to the kids (compared to my kids' former middle school) and like what I've read from other reviews, it does appear to be very institutional. I don't necessarily blame the teachers though, I think policies need to be re-written.

Although very pretty on the outside it is a nightmare on the inside. After my son went there for 5 months I withdrew him because he was literally afraid to go to this school. It is overcrowded and the classes have way too many kids in them. The teachers are more like disciplinarians than educators. They yell at the kids and the other students bullied my child and no one did anything about it. The administration is horribe! The school is run more like a prison than a school! I am so glad I got my child out of there before his self-esteem was hurt anymore than it already was. Very disappointed in this school.

My son has just transfered to this school for the 2011-2012 school year and he is very happy. The teachers have been very patient with him and they are easily accessable. Organization appears to be in order. He has been very motivated by the classroom discussions. Although I am not able to evaluate the leadership or the parent involvement area at this time, I am very pleased with this school thus far.

This school is all about discipline and nothing else. No rewards for good academic achievement. Teachers scream at the students and show them no respect. It is also VERY boring and unchallenging if your child is bright. The teachers gang up on the students and give them silent lunch for the smallest infractions. Critical thinking is strictly prohibited in all cases. Mill Creek is more like a prison than a school.
