I went to this school when I was in middle school, and I am happy to say I really enjoyed my experiences there. I never experienced any problems with bullying. A little drama here and there, but at middle school, that's to be expected. I liked and respected the majority of my teachers, and always felt safe. The ceiling, floors, and walls of the school were redone this summer, and it looks nice (I still have younger siblings at the school). I think it is a really good school.

I am fairly happy with this school and perhaps it is not the schools issue as much as it is parents who don't care how their children behave. To beiieve that it is normal for teenagers to bully and be cruel to other children is crap. That being said, some of the teachers here are great, they care about the students and try to make school fun. Others just go through the motions and get paid. My boys should be learning and excelling, possibly even enjoying school but are not. MMS is a good middle school in comparison to other schools. Lakeville schools are very good for average students.
