The middleschool A.P. Is horrible. She Is not a caring educator. Shes only like The above average student and has no use for the kids with I E P's. She tried to get me in trouble but it backfired . After freshman year i took my child out of the school and finally He is doing wonderful.

My middle school son has been treated badly by many boys in his grade for years. I've heard from other parents, the girls are even worse . The middle school assistant principal, daily shows favoritism to her pet students & ignores the students who they mistreat. No wonder the test scores & school ratings have been steadily declining for years. The principal has allowed the favoritism & academic decline to continue.

This is a great public school. Always greeted with smiles and staff is very quick to handle any issues that may arise.

Petrides is a great school overall. The small environment allows for individual attention as needed. Most teachers are attentive and are willing to discuss student progress with the parent.

It's a shame that this school is doing so poorly as far as education and discipline. .. There are a lot of teachers that display favoritism and it is unfair. Also this school does not challenge students or prepare them for college. I have two students attending Petrides and I am currently in works of having them transfered out. Elementary school is not that bad. Middle school is horrible students do nothing in class other than make videos and play games while teachers sit back and allow this to happen. Bullying is increasingly viewed as an important contributor to youth violence. Well here at the M. J. Petrides teachers bully students as well as students bully each other . This school is clearly not the best keep secret and not family oriented. The administration sweeps it all under the rug. Prinipal, Assistant Principal and most Educators are horrible. Students with IEP's the assistance is horrible. Don't believe the hype!!

i love this school. my children feel like part of a family. The mix of students ranging from high school to kindergarten makes this school a family. When we have school events you can really see how we shine!!
