The orchestra program at MBMS has saved my child from a total experience of misery. The social climate there is difficult. Wealthy students tend to segregate out from the moderate income students. Also, there is a elite academic status system. If your child is in all honors and has no difficulty in school academically and if they live in a wealthy neighborhood your child will enjoy school there. If your child should have difficulty academically, despite any wonderful human characteristics, he/she will be frowned upon by other academically gifted students. As the parent of an internationally adopted child I can say with experience that issues concerning race need to be addressed. The comments, many of them negative by other students are disheartening. The staff is wonderful. I wish the Principal would stop chewing gum in public.

We had a positive experience at Myrtle Beach Middle School. Our older son just finished eighth grade and my younger son starts sixth grade this fall. My sons are in the honors program where the kids are challenged to excell. My husband and I stayed involved at the school and participateed in many oraganizations. I tried to communicate as needed with the teacheres via email. I found the principal to be very caring and effective. He knew most students by name. The teachers were willing to go the extra mile to insure the best from each student. Stay involved and get to know the faculity and staff. They are dedicated to your child. I would recommend this school.

This school is terrible. I hated my children being at that school. There is a social ranking present in this school.

Had it not been for the orchestra program I would have taken both my children out of this school. I agree with the first reviw on M.B.M.S. there is a very strong clique present. Science was weak so was math so if your child is not a self starter and highly motivated watch out.

My child just completed her first year at this school (7th grade). She came from the Las Virgenes School District in Southern California. She had both a negative and positive experiences at MBMS. After they finally placed her in the appropriate classes (honors), she was happy and the teachers were all wonderful firm but fair. We were very impressed with the high quality of teachers here. The only negative experience she had were with the students. We were told at the beginning of the year that the school's student body typically turns over 30% because of the area's high tourist industry. My child complained the whole year about the rude treatment she got from the majority of the students. There is a very strong 'click' that runs the social world there and they are very hard on new students. The peer pressure is very strong and unreasonable. I spoke with many parents of first year students and they all acknowledged that the school has a problem in this area (high level of student rudeness). With one third of the student body turning over this school would benefit greatly by addressing this problem. The new students need more support. I offered to volunteer my time to help out on this issue via a newcomers club but was never taken up on it. Beyond all that, it's a great school district for the honors class student in that they offer many programs and benefits to the high achievers. Also, they segregate the grades here each grade has a separate wing on campus and separate lunch times. We give them an A for academics and an F for socialization.
