Handles bullying effectively: Strongly agree


- a
Bullies don't make it at MR. They are identified and dealt with.

Supports LD students: Strongly agree


- a
There is help classes for kids who just need a boost. It is for kids who are really trying but cant seem to get a concept. If there is a true learning disability I know they have the ROCK program. I am not apart of it but I don't it is for extreme cases, just kids who need mild modifications.


Effective school leaders: Strongly agree


- a
There is new leadership and its a much different school from even two years ago. The current staff truly love the kids and want to be a help to us as parents as we raise our kids. I feel supported and actually loved for the first time in many years. We have been at the school for several years and saw both administrations. We like this one the best.

Develops character: Strongly agree


- a
Kids are taught respect, compassion and integrity. Parents who choose to press into this teaching find themselves with well rounded kid who can stand on their on two feet, have a love for people and compassion for the hurting.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a
Most of the classes are team taught so there is always someone speaking into my child's needs.


Amount of homework: Strongly agree


- a
Homework is very reasonable. Granted every kid is not great at every subject but homework is used to reveal those areas and I have found the teachers most helpful. Some People build out who they are and other people perception of their parenting in how well a kid does on his homework and these people will struggle for hours to ensure that their kids work is exceptional but this is not the schools fault, it is exasperating to the kid and frustrating to the parent but again I don't see this as the schools fault. Homework is reasonable.



- a
Kids are taught to love each other.

Handles bullying effectively: Strongly disagree


- a
The school does not allow bullying. The kids are taught to love and respect each other. This life is modeled by the staff. One advantage MR has is that it draws from all over the Memphis metroplex so drama and "legacy" student who see themselves as entitled is very limited. Also, to me this is a culture thing. Students who are taught to push back the darkness and brokenness of the world around often develop a loving heart and a deep compassion for hurting people. Students are taken on service projects, host fund raiser, participate in and host events each year that develops in them a heart of compassion. Bullies have no platform or audience and normally they just don't make it at MR.


Supports LD students: Strongly disagree


- a
All my kids utilized the "Help class" system. It is free and meets early or after school. The school has a program you can pay for called ROCK it is for students with learning needs beyond what the free service can help.

Effective school leaders: Strongly disagree

My oldest son is 23 and he started in k4 at MRBS. Year-before-last the school made a turn. All the administration left, many of the teachers left and a rebuilding process started. Without getting lengthy the mood and culture have changed. Like a breath of fresh air parents, teachers and students are working together. As a parent I feel valued and my concerns heard. The new Motto is "Love Works" and it is lived everyday on the campus by the new admin and all the teaching staff. Keep in mind they are not a reformed school. Some people read this and think that their kid will love it because the rules have been relaxed. The rules have been relaxed and loving each other rules the day but a grace community still has separations from people who refuse to love and respect others around them. The new environment is different from the old environment in that students are EXPECTED to love one another and respect one another, this is no longer a FORCED discipline that is enforced by multiple rules and varying levels of punishments. If you have built your child a world where everyone has to comply to their will and wants, you will not be successful here.
