Mendive Middles School, is the greatest school you could ask for. There are great teachers, with a fun personality, who work with students on their academics. We keep our school clean, and in the best shape possible. With our PTA, and Leadership students, Mendive is able to raise money for extra curricular activities. But not only does Mendive have a great academic program, but our school dominates in sports. Basketball, Volleyball, Track, Cross Country, we show our school spirit with spectacular sportsmanship, and skills. Here at Mendive, we think of excellence, and achievement. Overall, Mendive Middle School is the best school there is!

THE BEST SCHOOL IN THE WORLD! great classes,wonderful facility, just a over all great environment for all students! Currently ranked the #1 middle school in the county, for teachers, facility, education, wealth, and one of the most positive environments! The teachers work with the students and really give quality it to there teaching. I have to say that my favorite teacher I have ever had is Mr. Barbey my Us History teacher! He's funny and keeps me wanting to learn without boring me out of my mind! I'm going to miss him very much when I take the next big step to high school, he definitely made me smarter and I feel like i grew up a little in his class, that gos for many of his students! Good luck to the up coming 7th graders to Mendive! What a wonderful school I really enjoyed my time here! Thanks!

Great school with great curriculum. My daughter attended the school and really received a great education to prepare her for high school. The teachers are great and they make the students feel really appreciated. This is the best middle school in all of Reno-Sparks.

This is my school, and I love it already! The teachers are didcated and funny. What I like most about this school is that the teachers actually interact with the kids instead of talking non-stop for like 45 minutes. (Thats about how long classes are) Although I would like more time to get into our lockers. Thats it! The teachers, Staff, Students, and Parents are amazingly friendly and dedicated to everything that needs to be done. The principal is sweet and caring to anyone no matter who it is. There have been some problems but even on the WORST day, the principal comes to school and has a positive attitude. I love my school!

This school is the BEST! Its staff are truly caring and professional. They are supportive and concerned about every aspect of your child's life. My child was a special ed student and they welcomed him with open arms. On a bad day, the PRINCIPAL came to have lunch with him. How many Principals are willing to do that? The teacher quality is superb, most have Masters degrees. They train regular student advocates (who volunteer) to help out the special needs students mainstreamed in regular classrooms. It is a win-win situation. The trained student advocates develop leadership and empathy, while the special ed student has a peer role model and feels a part of the group. The staff at Mendive all work together in the welfare and best interest for the child, this makes it the BEST school anywhere.
