As a parent of this school for over 15 years, I can say I will not be sending my youngest here. It bothers me how inexperienced parents are giving this school a five star review when they never even knew the previous principal, they're children are in their first year and they don't even attend the school themselves. I don't either of course, but I did many years ago when I was a pre teen, and I can say, the school has taken a turn for the worst. As a matter of fact, the entire school district is falling apart.

With a brand new science wing for the students and teachers to enjoy and a new Principal, I have great hope for the future of MMS. My daughter loves this school and the friends she has made there. She adores her teachers who are smart, experienced, enthusiastic and passionate about their work. Every day the students are encouraged to visit their teachers after school if they have a problem with the work covered or homework set. In addition, the after-school clubs run by these teachers range from the amazing MMS play into as varied categories as fencing, adventurers club and more. MMS is a charming, but old, building so some of the corridors seem a little tired, but shouldn't reflect on the learning that goes on inside. In this diverse community the test scores mirror that economic and social diversity and do not necessarily demonstrate the overall capabilities of the school.

MMS is the rare case of a great middle school that balances an enthusiastic, caring environment with high academic standards. The teacher s and counselors have been carefully selected: they truly love teaching kids of this age, and it shows. They are smart, encouraging, and get the most from their students, who are well prepared for honors/AP level classes in high school. BTW, the music and art programs are extraordinary as well. A rare gem.

MMS is a great school!I graduated from there last year,and overall....it's just great!All of teachers care about their students and make sure they get good grades and have the highest confidence in themselves to take with them out of middle school and in to high school and so on.MMS really helped me from when I first entered in 7th grade.I dont think I was ever as sad to see something end.If I could rewind the heads of time and start at the first day of 7th grade again,I would.GO MMS!!!!!!!!

We are new to the town and district, an untraditional family with a 7th grade son. We have no real complaints about the middle school, the staff set high standards, there are also high expected levels of behavior. The guidance staff has been WONDERFUL and our child seems happy.

Maplewood Middle does about as good a job with middle school years as any school I've seen. The principal is dedicated as well as the staff.

This was a disapointment to my family. There is a wonderful music program but not a great education. The test grades are okay. The teachers need to make learning fun because when the students come from elementry to middle school their grades drop!
