They don't know what they are doing. On my math exam the teacher gave us all a 100 because she didn't even know what she was suppose to be teaching. Teachers don't seem to care about the students or their grades.
There is no discipline. If students are being rude no one controls them. When I went there in 7th grade a lot of the classes made substitute teachers go home crying. The students have no respect for authority. Maybe that's because authority doesn't treat them like people who have needs and rights.
This is our first year at Maus and it has been wonderful. Teachers and counselors are really great with the students. I believe that most of them seek to give the students the individual attention that they need. It seems to be a very positive and encouraging environment.
This school communication between parents and administration is horrible. If there is any issues at the school, it will take several calls to even meet or speak with someone for a resolution. I think there are way too many young teachers/staff members there that do not have the maturity to conduct business in a professional manner. Some of the teachers are great!!
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.
