Handles bullying effectively: Strongly disagree


- a
Bullying from wealthy kids/families and faculty children seems to be tolerated indefinitely.

Supports LD students: Strongly disagree


- a
They will accept anyone who can pay.


Effective school leaders: Strongly disagree


- a
Well he is effective at taking days off to make music videos. He could care less about the students or academics.

Develops character: Disagree


- a
They talk the talk, but don't walk the walk. A general lack of respect for parents and students.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly disagree


- a
Most do not have education degrees, and seem to only be teaching there to get free tuition for their own children and then they leave when their kids leave. Few career teachers.


Amount of homework: Strongly disagree


- a
Poorly managed homework - used either as busy work, or for parents to teach concepts the teachers don't teach. Hours upon hours of homework in elementary school.

IMO: A great school for behavior problems or low IQ rich kids. Not a place if your child has any academic talents. Teachers are extremely lazy, most have little teaching experience, very few have education degrees, and turnover is high. Head of School is more interested in making videos and construction projects, than he is in quality education or creating a cohesive community. There are definitely favored families, whose kids can get away with anything, an many with learning disabilities that are not addressed. The school is more interested in collecting money (and they will ask you for more at every turn) than they are in your kid. The school nurtures a clear social hierarchy and bullying in teachers, parents and children. There is a good reason so many parents, including MB teachers, have moved their children to the school down the street.

My son started at MB this past year in the middle school, grade 7. His experience thus far has been wonderful. The class trip at the beginning of the year was a terrific ice breaker & allowed him to assimilate with ease. The faculty and administration are outstanding & provide great detailed feedback (where my son excels & what he needs to work on). The music, drama & athletics programs are also fantastic, my son played in the jazz band & orchestra, played 3 sports & will participate in the school play next year. Matt Glendinning the Head of School at MB is a fantastic leader, a real bright guy who & is transforming the school & building a strong foundation for the future. Jared Schott, Head of the Middle school is also an outstanding leader & so great with the kids. It really comes down to fit, & so far MB has been great for our son.

I graduated from MB nearly 2 decades ago. My time at the school was unremarkable and average at best. I have to agree with another poster below who had graduated over 20 years ago in terms of there being varying categories of students and how those categories of students were treated, encouraged and even taught by the teachers. I can recall many instances where there were certain students who could do no wrong and always were winning awards and goaded onto stardom. There were other students who were treated like pariahs and were never encouraged to do anything except to be average. In my opinion there appeared to be favoritism for certain students that was rampant from the teachers to the administration. There also seemed to be some teachers who practiced the favorite student religion more than others. It seems like the majority of those teachers have either retired or moved on from the days when I was a student. I am not denying that the education I received was superior. For someone who was average I went to college and really excelled and went on to become a leader in my field with 2 doctoral degrees. I can't deny that MB helped me a lot in this regards.

Moses Brown The teachers and academia are superb, my child is in middle school and thriving, he's not an athletic child but chose to push out of his comfort zone with the support of his teacher and coaches and played sports every season and well as advancing his musical talent. The arts are a big influence on Moses Brown and I am excited to see what the new performing arts center will bring. In my humble opinion, there is no better school than Moses Brown and I will always be grateful that my son has had the opportunity to attend.
