Staff and administration are punitive, nonsupportive , and self satisfying. There seems to be no caring for educating the student, just how it makes the school look.

We love this school. I have had one child complete 3 years there and another one started this fall. Both kids have had excellent experiences here. There are plenty of clubs and activities. The staff does a great job of transitioning the kids from elementary school. The teachers are open to communication. It is an excellent school.

Great school with great people

Excellent school, with many 'best practices.' Core classes are taught by teams of teachers who form close relationships with the students. Technology is great. Athletic intramural program is strong. Teachers communicate student progress in core subjects to parents regularly via email. 'Student led' conferences provide students the opportunity to visit with a parent to set personal and academic goals and reflect on academic performance during the school year. Excellent music programs. Honor Choir program and Jazz band are second to none. String program is growing (has to overcome challenge with lack of string program at the elementary level.) Excellent theater program, includes fall musical, reader's theater, and forensics (competitive acting.) Every teacher my children have had at MRMS has been incredible. Strong administrative leadership.
