The school is a small school where there is a multipurpose room for the Cafeteria, Auditorium and Gym. However, I feel having a small school there is a greater sense of community. The teachers are wonderful for what I seen. They really help and get involved. They are also very understanding as well. The Halloween Trick N' Trunking is a very fun event. Even though there is not a lot of events in the school and would like to see more. Also more class trips will be nice too. But as far as education the school does above and beyond.
My kids have been going here for years. They have a variety of programs for kids with difficulties to make them excel. The teacher's always keep me informed and always set up meetings to speak to me about where my kids are at and the options that I have to help them. I love this school and the teacher's.
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.
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.
