Not the most Parent oriented school district. . . School is great, unless you want to be involved in your child s development.

This school failed my learning challenged child miserably. Endless meetings with staff had no followup on their end. She was passed along from here to the HS after a remedial summer course in which she spent more time painting a wall than learning. You need to be very proactive if you have a special needs child in this school.

I love this school. The administrators are willing to help you, help your child. The teachers are very pleasant and know your childs weaknesses. Your child is not just another face, they actually care

I agree with the previous reviews though a new kinder and gentler principal is in charge and seems to listen and follow up on parents concerns if they voice them. Teaching still seems to be out of the 1950s and too many teachers use xerox copies (that they've used for 20 years) or printed material from the internet instead of real, varied, hands-on type curriculum to encourage discussion and learning.

They would rather a problem stay home or disapear than deal with it. Sports are a major part of the program, but music, art, etc. are not. One of the only good things about MMS is that most of the teachers are wonderful and enjoy teaching young minds. But many can't handle this age group. This school is a throw-back to the 1950's & 60's and needs updating.
