Great school with teachers and principals that truly care about students. My child comes home and talks how much he loves school because of the teachers
—Submitted by a parent


Posted September 26, 2008

I want to know what do they do with the money we give for 25.00 school fees? My child claims that she does not have a book to bring home for social studies. Why is this school not up to date. Why are the always asking for money and why dont the teachers have a seminar where they can update their skills for improvment? this schools does need help an overall update.

The school is plain awful like the first review said. The principal is to afraid of the students to discipline them! there is a lot of bullying and favoritism that goes on with the students. I know several parents who actually moved so their children would no longer have to go to this awful place. The person who wrote the 5 star review must be a teacher there. I don't know anyone else who would say those things about that place. I wish that my child never had to set foot in that school. I highly recommend not putting your child in MMS.

I cannot say enough good things about MMS. I love this school. The teachers are phenomenal and truly care about the students. Children learn to appreciate diversity at MMS. Our top students outperform all students at neighboring schools (district champs at Academic Team and very high disaggregated CATS scores). This school puts students first. I wouldn't send my child to another school in the area. MMS is tops.

About the tests


Beginning in the 2011-12 school year, and continuing in 2012-2013, Kentucky used the Kentucky Performance Rating for Educational Progress (K-PREP) tests to assess students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and mathematics, 4 and 7 in science, 5 and 8 in social studies, 5, 6, 8, 10, and 11 in writing, and 4, 6, and 10 in language mechanics. The K-PREP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Kentucky.

About the tests


Until 2010-2011, Kentucky used the Kentucky Core Content Tests (KCCT) to assess students in grades 3 through 8 and 10 through 12 in reading, social studies, science, writing, and math. The Elementary School results displayed on GreatSchools profiles are for grades 3 through 5 combined for each subject. Middle School results are for grades 6 though 8 combined, and High School results are for grades 10 though 12 combined. The KCCT is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Kentucky. Beginning in 2011-2012, Kentucky switched to the K-PREP and EOC exams.

About the tests


Beginning in the 2011-12 school year, and continuing in 2012-2013, Kentucky administered the End-of-Course (EOC) assessments. EOCs are tests given to public high school students when they complete a course to assess their knowledge of important course concepts. They are similar to a final exam, except that they are created and scored by an outside testing company, ensuring that the tests are both rigorous and aligned with state and national college readiness standards.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
