Maize Middle School is a progressive educational center which promotes Connecting, Learning and Leading when instilling the principles of Character Education daily. Maize Middle students practice taking responsibility for their actions and learn how to create a pls to be successful academically and socially. The Parent-teacher organization works diligently with the community, parents and staff enabling the school to have the "extras" in the classroom, purchasing classroom reading books as well as creating fun activities for families and staff. When a job is posted the applicants flood in. Great people, great students, great education building our future leaders

We have a 7th grader at this school and love it there! The kids are really considerate of others and very accepting of other kids that might be a bit different. They all band together and protect each other. Many may not know this, but it is the smaller of the 2 Maize Middle Schools. Kids get a lot of individualized attention and the administration is top notch! Go Eagles!

WOW!! Why doesn't this school deserve a 10? It should say 10, not 7. The list of honor role students was 5 pages long!
