Posted April 1, 2010

well i am a student at this school and there are many issues that i feel need to be solved first off the leak roofs often well everytime it rains and sometimes when it doesnt rain WELL WHAT DO THEY DO ABOUT IT most ppl may ask but what they do is put trashcans down the hallway to catch water the school is really old and needs to be rebuilt if you are just even 2 min late for school you have to go to ISS for that whole period and personnaly I feel that is ridiculous you are missing valuable class time just for being a few min late their are many other problems but Im at school right now and dont have anought time to tell you everything

Although MMS has a great curriculum, the parents are not involved in the school and encouraging their children to do their best and act their best at school.

I have never encountered such insensitive and uncaring leadership in the educational field in all my life. The treatment given to both students and parents is in a manor unbecoming professionals in this level. Every situation falls on the hierarchy of the school leaving us with no alternatives. I am disappointed in the environment practiced in this school. I have never advocated for rights, but this situation made me realize what a fallacy it would be not to speak up.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 North Carolina used End-of-Grade (EOG) tests to assess students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and grades 5 and 8 in science. The EOG is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of North Carolina. Students must pass the grade 8 EOG test in order to graduate from high school. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level on the tests.
