RUN! Don not enroll your child in this school if you car about their health, safety, or education. There are many health concerns in the building like leaking sewer pipes, abestos, and lack of heat in the winter. The boiler system needed to be replaced YEARS ago and instead they continuously do quick fixes just to keep the students in the building. Also there are a few leaking sewer pipes in the garden level classrooms that have been fixed multiple times with quick fixes like duct tape.
The school is also not physically safe. The Director/Principal is never in the building and has little to do with actual discipline. He also chooses to look the other way when students are physically harmed by staff (even when it is caught on camera).
Educationally, this school is a joke. Their advanced curriculum is dying fast as teachers quit and classes are no longer being offered. Current students, staff, and parents are frustrated and disgusted by the direction the school is heading in. Again DO NOT ENROLL your child. Look for alternative schools.
The teachers and administration lacks motivation, are genuinely unconcerned, and seems to just be there for the check. Starting w/the office staff, whom all seem to have attitudes whenever they have to actually assist. The teachers are callous and their curriculum is average, at best. Trying to get a call back or conference with anyone of higher authority is absurd. The only reason I gave it two stars is due to their selection of electives and after school turtoring
A comprehensive education! Our five children are not only excelling in the class room, they reinforce social responsibility and offer a global view in each subject . The staff and professors are creative, loving, committed and ambitious. MMSA is a engaging college preparatory for students who will one day design and run the world. We expect that our children will remain Cougars!
