I have an older son who used to attend Maury and a younger one that is right now in his second year there. I think there's a marked improvement since my older son last attended the school especially with the teachers and principal involvement and better communication with parents. When I attended meetings with the school's principal and my child's teachers, I felt that my concerns are addressed directly and they seemed more encouraging than the past meetings I had when my older child was in Maury. I believe effective leadership combined with heartfelt sincere wish to help students do better and accomplish more will make this school a five stars one.

The administration is to worried about personal agendas. The school is dirty and poorly maintained. If you haven't been from here forever and in the "know" your child gets nowhere. I have heard the same is true for the high school.

As a parent with two Children one in 7 gread and one in 8 gread, I've seen a lot over the past few years. I've seen it go from a school with low over all greads to top t-cap score. The teachers seem to be better with being on board with what needs to be done for the children in our county. Each year I have to say it get better and better. Also They have no billy's but have a buddy club. Everyone looks out for eachother now. They also have clubs for everyone. And sports that anyone can tryout. And also some that everyone as long as you try your best you will make your part on the team. I see kids highfiving the teachers. And the kids with speacil needs are always at the top. But being we are a small low income school with just enough rich people in our area. We get looked over on State Help. Our PTO is trying raise money to put AC in the GYM. And we are not having any luck. This would get it done and more

I have children currently enrolled at Maury and a child that is now in high school. My high schooler was a year behind in her studies when she began at a private school and had to be ordered a different curriculum from the other students. I believe that the teachers do as well as they can with the limited resources that the County gives them. It is more a county wide problem than just this school.

My grandkids go to Maury MS & I think it is the greatest. It offers so much for them to do and be involved in. Helps them get ready for High School and the future.

I am an 8th grader at Maury and sadly this is my last year. I have learned so many things from all of my teachers these past 3 years. I am going very sad that i am going to have to leave. I have made Maury my home and leaving it...wow! it just feels unreal. All of my teachers are the nicest and...words can't express! I have been here throught the good, like Ms. Miller (counselor) got an award, and the bad, but i would never change going to Maury! Most of my greatest memories have happened here!

I am a 6th grade student at Maury so this is my first year here. Coming from the best elementary school academically in the county I am used to being at a great school but this school is by far the best school in the county the teachers make you feel special the principal is great at his job and when I walk into school I know im going to be safe. This school can be tough yet fun we have special things we do on certain days going to this school is a blast I love it here

I am a past student at Maury, and I must say that it is by far the best middle school in Jefferson County. Academics is first priority here, and sports are highly available to anyone qualified by the principal's standards, (such as no out-of-school suspension, no 'F' grades, etc.) This is a wonderful school and teachers are absolutely amazing here. Parents are asked to be involved all of the time and are big parts in the school. The teachers make you feel like not only a student, but a priority as well. The teachers here are truly talented in their field of work. It's amazing.
