I have been consistently disappointed by this school. My daughter has attended for about a year now. They are way more concerned with the dress code than if their students are receiving an education. Another reviewer mentioned the office clerk. She is AWFUL! Thank goodness she retired after last year, but there is one other that is just as bad. It is a shame because there are some fantastic teachers in this school. They are simply overshadowed by the poor communication and poor concentration on academics by the rest of the support staff. Yes, you will get 3-5 phone calls a week from Mr Drye telling you all about sports, bake sales, and when they need volunteers to proctor exams, but GOOD LUCK getting any administrator at this school to call you back if you have an issue with your student. Also, God forbid that you have a doctor's appointment that comes up. IF you don't send in a note at the beginning of the day, it would be easier to break them out of jail than get them out of school early! Cannot wait for my child to be done and get to Butler. LOVE the staff and administration there!

Absolutely the best Middle School in Charlotte. The Principle is fantastic, organized, friendly and by-the-book as well. I would strongly recommend Mint Hill Middle.

Mint Hill Middle school, My daughter transferred here from South Charlotte Middle and the atmoshpere is so much better than her previous school. The teachers work just as hard with little pay, It's horrible NC public school systems do not give these teachers and staff more. My complaints are that their academic clubs are very few, What happen to quiz bowl, future business leaders of america, etc? Not every child plays sports. Also, their is one very sarcastic, rude, bitter secretary in the front office that they should fire because she places a damper on the rest of the positive staff. I won't describe her or say her name, but you will notice her negative mood if you ever ask her to anything that requires her to leave her cushioned seat. Horrible service. The school lunch is just as small and boring as any other school. My daughter comes home starving every day if she doesn't pack her lunch, and she is small for height. Cheese sticks is not a well balanced entree? The attention to foreign languages and higher academic classes needs better attention, but other than that they are competitive in this feild.

I like the teachers at this school, but the staff needs to get there act together. How can an adult ( asst. Principle) embarass a child openly for what she is wearing! Its a shame and disgrace to have such a person in charge of our children. I don't think it is appropriate to scold a child for what she has on if as an adult you are walking around in short skirts as well. Bu the way " A walkie talkie doesn't make you important or more respected" doing your job and being there for the kids is what matters! Everyone on staff except a few good people, seem to have their head so far up their butts, it would be impossible to look after our kids! What a shame for the town of Mint Hill.

Mint Hill is a great school. I recommend, Mrs. Hughes (Science), Mrs. Shoup (Science), Mrs. Cummins (Math), Mrs. Neff (Math), and Ms. Bostleman. Amazing school, great people, and wonderful academics. I'm moving to Chapel Hill, and I'm going to miss this school so much.

I'm very happy with Mint Hill Middle. The principal is always on top of communicating updates through weekly newsletters and phone calls. I get a few calls every week with announcements or updates. The student support is great, both through teachers providing extra time for tutoring and the guidance counselors being available to talk through any issues. I have two daughters, one who has moved on to high school and one who is currently in 7th grade and I've had nothing but good experiences in dealing with the staff here. The campus is always clean and well maintained.

My family is looking to purchase a home. This is the middle school for the area. I have concern for my son because he stutters. I wonder if that will be an issue or will there be teachers to take up for him. How are the kids at this school. Ive heard alot about the teachers but not the conduct of the children there. Do the principal have a hand on the students their. I'm not wanting to purchase a home and don't like the school. By the way,how is the Butler high why I'm asking these questions.

As a student I mostly recomend this school because it is a lot of fun. Especialy Ms. Campbell's class. She uses treats to make us involved more in math and stuff like that. But mostly its because it is a lot of fun!

I am an 8th grader at mint hill middle and I really like the school. I would say the three most fun activities at my school are going to dances, sports games, and hoops for heart. Our hoops for heart are games during our elective classes. The profits of the games are donated to the american heart association to help find a cure for heart disease. The games are held in memory of mr. John Guion. Our spirit week is also fun at school.

I forgot to mention the tri-weekly updates on student's progress and the weekly newsletters (I consider them love letters) from the principal. If a parent doesn't know what's going on at MHMS, it is through no fault of the staff.

MHMS is exemplary in every way. The staff are experienced and supported by administration. This frees them to focus on imaginitive instruction with emphasis on individual performance. Communication with parents is excellent; the principal sends a weekly newsletter and all teacher emails receive a response within 24 hours. Every teacher offers tutoring one day a week. Parent involvement at this school is phenomenal. I have been involved with PTA and SLT for 9 years at various schools and never have I seen such generosity from parents with regard to time and resources. Safety is never a concern for me, I know that my son is safe at this school. MHMS was a 'National School to Watch' in 2005. Educators from around the country toured our school to learn ways to model their excellence. Need I say more?!
