We are a new family to the school and would like to be involved for our children. Unfortunately, I feel there is so much negativity from gossipy moms here. These moms actually target you to listen to this list of negative comments about other moms. They have no problem mentioning names to you. It is very disheartening and uncomfortable. My kids have even told me some comments made by these women because they are at the school during the day to volunteer. We are completely turned off and are hesitant to volunteer because of these gossipy moms. It is a shame because the school seems to have a staff that cares and helps your child with their education. We are looking into moving our children elsewhere so we can feel comfortable with being involved in their lives at school. I would normally post my info but feel these gossipy moms may target me and my children next.

My oldest son is 11 and in the 5th grade and I also have younger kids that attend this school. I have never had a problem with any teachers or the principal. They offer a wide variety of programs for kids who are having difficulties with speech, reading, & writing. The school is phenomenal.

For a school like Menlo Park Terrace, five stars are not enough. I would give it 10 stars if the web site allowed it. It is an extraordinary school and the teachers are so friendly. Over all it's a great school, great teachers, great principal and the students are great too. Proud to be the parents of the kid who goes to MPT school.
