Some teacher just do not care or make the grade. Teachers that want to argue with a parent when a parent says their child is sick and should not be docked 50% for not turning it in on time (as they were are home sick with me). Teachers that tell kids to call their folks during the middle of the day if they did not turn in an assignment (first time not turning in), and then the teacher refusing to talk on the phone. Teachers that do not give students credit for the grades they get on papers if they do not do corrections. My children are on honor roll...Maverick honor in fact (all A's). The principal is incredible...willing to talk to a parent when they call or return emails to parents in a timely manner. Teachers need to be held accountable and not have 1st period with a teacher finish getting ready by doing her make up and hair. With that said, I will say that the honor classes teacher that I have had the experience are great. The honor class teachers, really challenge their students and make them think rather than just doing hand holding like some others do.

Parents please beware that you do not have a choice! As a parent I am concerned about not only my children but all of the other children in the Maize district who apparently no longer have a choice about where they will go to school. We had no idea that this was a lottery and if we had known we would have chosen to move to the Goddard district.

Be very careful when placing your child in these schools. They (meaning Maize schools themselves) pick & choose whom will go to what school. This is happening to us right now. My son attended Maize South Middle School & should carry over to Maize South HIgh School right across the street (along with all his friends) The school decided to pick him out of several hundred students to be placed in the other High School across town. Thus meaning all the children he's grown up with and gone to school with will attend MSHS and he will be asked to attend MSH across town. And get this! We actually own a home right across the street from MSHS he could walk. He will not be allowed to finish his last four years of high school with the children he's grown up with. What they're doing to our son is very in ethical. They pick and choose & you live with it. I thought we made a step up from Wichita schools & realized we took a huge step down. And our son will most likely be in treatment for depression shortly. Think very hard before placing your children in their schools. Don't think for one minute it can't or won't happen to your children. It's happening to mine as I write this review .

Maize South Middle School is honestly the best school anyone could ever go to. Mr. Blazek is the best principal you could ever have, he cares about how people are doing in school, and encourages you do to your best everyday. The teachers are also the best teachers you can ever have. They teach you everything you need to know and more, to make sure you get exemplary on your state testing. The whole usd 266 district is the best district in Kansas. =]]

Both of the middle schools in Maize are exceptional. They each have excellent teachers and administrators. Our students are quite fortunate!

MSMS is by far the best school in Kansas. The admin is exceptional and the staff is terrific! My kids have learned so much here, not just academics, but how to live in the real world. John Blazek is the pricipal, he is a wonderful influence on the students. He really cares about them and the community. The teachers at MSMS are the best around. They are very involved with the students. USD 266 as a whole is a wonderful school district! Music, sports and other activities are plentiful. We are truly blessed!
