School has too many kids. Easy for a child to fall through the cracks. Advanced math teacher teaches by intimidation and ridicule. Has stated that a parent should expect their child to have at least 1 major melt down about the math class. Do our kids need this added stress & bulling by the teachers? Not impressed!
Malow is the school everyone in this area wants to be at. It has the highest student performance level of any Macomb County junior high school and really prepares kids for their future. I love it here!
For a blue ribbon school I am highly disappointed. The school is way to big and the children that need a little extra attention and help don't get it. I tried so many times to work with the school to help my child and I was blown off. The principal couldn't show any less concern. Their policy on backpacks is crazy.
Malow Junior High truly isn't as perfect as it seems. I'm a student there as of now, and I'm struggling with classes that I would have absolutely no problems with in a better environment. The teachers treat students so much differently compared to other students. Favoritism is a big thing here, therefore students don't get as much help when they need it. It seems as if they care more about the sports than academics. Sad, because it really could be a great school, just problems with priorities and teachers. :-/
Malow Jr. High is way too big. It cannot give extra attention to those children that may need it, especially in the math and science department. I feel that the school puts extra emphasis on football and cheerleading, and less on academics.
