I go to marcy as a sixth grader in 2013. The school is great and i learn a lot . We are a caring and loving community at marcy. All this burned out and stuff i am reading is POPPYCOCK. Marcy is a wonderful school and i recommend it,


Posted August 9, 2012

Marcy Open is a 'has been' area school choice, and "has been" for more than a decade. Once the model for Barton Open (E. Lake Harriet) & having a dedicated, special, child-centered and creative group of 5 women teachers all who left by late 90s, Marcy's shinning legacy certainly has not been upheld by those who have held the torch. This manifests in so many ways, child attitude toward the love of learning, integrated creativity and teacher quality. Some teachers, one male in particular, are very questionable performance/social skill. Get rid of him. Others teachers are burned out and unhealthy, partly due I think to the environment. A good school goes far beyond desired discipline and academic cores. These are all Marcy is trying to hang onto and unsuccessfully. Marcy needs a sea change and a common philosophical vision renewal big time. What a shining star it was and can be again but for shining again the human spirit.

My son went to Marcy from Kindergarten to 3 rd grade, I pulled him out In 3rd grade because his teacher was gone for over 3 months and he was getting behind, the substitute teacher didn't seem to know who he was whenever I met my son at his classroom after school for pick up. There's no parking so when you drop off and pick up your child you risk getting hit by other parents because they don't seem to care who Is In the road. My son now goes to Hale and i LOVE it. Good riddance Marcy!!!!

Marcy is not the school it was in 2008. The new leadership has caused a lot of teacher turnover. It is still a "good enough" school and I'm not pulling my child out. In the past two years music has been bashed by leadership and is now struggling. Teachers that have been re-assigned, seemingly randomly and not for the good of student achievement, to grades with which they are unfamiliar. I'm worried about Marcy's future and hope my child will not need to change schools before 8th grade graduationl

This Is my son's 2nd year at Marcy and he's doing well thanks to his dedicated teacher, so far I have been lucky to get two wonderful teachers both years. My son has a good time while he's at school and learns so much. The teachers at Marcy always take the time to talk to the parents and keep them Involved. I am very proud of our school :) Keep up the good work.

We have a 7th grader and a 5th grader at Marcy and feel very lucky to have them at such a dynamic, interesting school with such a creative and involved set of parents and other community residents. I know of no other school where my kids could be learning so much academically, while also participating in exciting arts activities like theater, band, rock band, the visual arts and more. Such programs have become almost extinct in the public schools, but Marcy's dedicated staff and parent groups continue to raise money to fund them and to do the work to make them happen. Marcy is a truly urban school, with a very diverse student body and lousy parking, but being right in the city means the kids get incredible opportunities because they can walk downtown, to the Guthrie, take city buses to museums and more. Marcy is a real gem.

I was extremely happy with my student's kindergarten experience. In the first and second grades we had a teacher who went out of his way to help my child when it became clear that the pace in class was too slow for her. In third grade we were not so lucky. It was clear that there were no resources for a g/t student. It was sad to watch the enthusiasm for school draining away. In the end I had to find another school for her to attend that had a strong g/t program. All in all, I like Marcy a lot. The community is wonderful. What is frustrating is what they have to accomplish with little funding. If that weren't such a huge issue, I think Marcy would be a superb school.

Marcy is a special place and a terrific school. My daughter feels safe, nurtured, and learns so many interesting things everyday. It has wonderful diversity and many extracurricular activities!

Marcy Open school like almost all the public schools has suffered from budget cuts. Yet it seems to grow with problems everywhere year after year that never get delt with. Because of the poor leadership at marcy, students in every class in the school are not doing well.

My daughter is now in fifth grade and I feel lucky every day we found Marcy. This is a place where it is cool to be smart, creative and being respectful of fellow students and ideas is a lesson taught daily.

One of the many wonderful things about Marcy Open is the focus on not only academic acheivement, but the whole child including social and emotional well being. The adults in the school make an effort to show EVERY child that they care.

I didn't learn much from this school. The thing that they never really showed me how to do was math. The teachers at this school doesn't really know how to work with students who learn different from the rest of the students. You have no idea how glad I was when I left.

A great school My child loves the school and is actually excited to go every morning!

A truly wonderful school: great teachers, true leader of a principal and real commitment to the students. Great emphasis on basics, integration of multiple disciplines, focus on the arts and community involvement. Scores are not always reflective of the quality of the school: many! children under poverty line and do not stay at the school long enough to show greater achievement. Also impressive is the level of parent involvement which results in much greater resources for the teachers. My child has been here for four years and I feel it has been one of the best decisions I've made as a parent.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Minnesota used the Minnesota Comprehensive Assessment-III (MCA-III) to test in math in grades 3 through 8 in reading in grades 3 through 8 and 10 and in science for grades 5 and 8, and once in high school. The MCA-III is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Minnesota. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

The different student groups are identified by the Minnesota Department of Education. If there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, data is not reported for that group.
