Both of my children have had wonderful experiences at this school. Most of the teachers are excellent and provide a lot of positive reinforcement while making a real effort to connect to the students. The leadership is fantastic, particularly the counselors. The overall environment of the school is positive and fun. I do feel that the homework and weekly tests could be more demanding-- homework is rarely given, and students are often able to use their notes during tests. While I hear that this is becoming the "norm" for middle and high school, it worries me in regards to college preparation. All in all, this is a wonderful school, and I have two very proud and happy McMath Tigers!
I LOVE this school. I have homeschooled my son all his life and decided to send him this year for 7th grade. The teachers have worked with my son with the transition wonderfully. I find the teachers to be enthusiastic and very caring. This school is the best.
I used to go to McMath, I went there 7th to 8th and all i can say is 8th grade was my best year 7th was too, but 8th was amazing the teachers really want you to understand and I 100% believe that do care about their education, parents that disagree with me and have a student attending there now, you need to go sit in class because if your child is not learning or understanding then mostly likely they are not raising their hand so think about it
School lacks leadership and communication. Half the time what we the parents are told is not reality. Trust issues surround the Principal. Where is the blond lady that was principal last year she knew what she was doing this year everything seems to be a mess.
