I think this school could use a lot more structure and they need to be consistent. This is my son's third year at this school and he has also had 3 principles. Some of the teachers there really care about the kids but they are few and far between. I think that the staff needs to act more like adults and less like friends of the students.

I have a child that attends this school and this school has really made her have so much more friends then what she hade at hubbard school. Maxson Middle school is such a remarkable school for any 6-8 grader.

My 3 years at Maxson School was one of the best 3 years I had so far. I felt that my teachers were very helpful and supportive. They helped increase our test scores that increased the schools average in state exams. The principal did her job and made Maxson a better place. I enjoyed the class trips and extracurricular activities that were for the students. Overall Maxson helped me to become the intelligent young lady that i am today.

I think, some of Maxson schools teachers display lack of intrest in their students. I have experienced multiple dissappointments with this school. It's unfortunate, I have to attempt to make the best of a bad situation, since I can not afford to send my child to private school. Some of Maxson teachers are in the wrong field, it appears, the gamble on children failing more than excelling.

I am a 8th grade student at Maxson and there is not 11.5 students per teacher and classrooms are over filled and teachers have to even share classrooms.
