Maus Middle School is a fine school, there's nothing special about it. When you're there, you may notice that the school favors females far more than they do males to the point it's ridiculous. In lunch, girls get to class fastest and boys have to go the long route. In classes, usually if the boys do something wrong, even if the girls are doing it as well, boys will be told to "look at the girls", as if they were a good role model. However, the largest favoritism I've seen so far in this school regarding boys and girls is in any athletic class that I've attended. Here's an example of one of the instances: We had finished our warm-up and 2 boys were talking to each other, and 4 girls were talking in the back of the gym. The coach said "Girls, you can go change, boys you have 50 push-ups for talking". After this, whilst everyone was at around 20-25 push up mark, one person messed up his push-up and the coach had made us all start all over again, except this time we all did it in sync. We had to do 20 push-ups given we had little time. If your child hates favoritism or you do, do not attend this school. They largely favor girls over boys, to the point some could call it sexist.
