My kids have attended probably what would be considered more than the usual number of schools due to my husbands work. We moved to Trophy Club last year specifically to attend this school thinking it would be one of the better public schools in the area. Extremely disappointed! Only a few teachers seemed to really care (seemed more interested in just getting through the day), huge lack of communication between teachers and parents as far as what is upcoming in the class, not sure what the function of the counseling department is as we asked for assistance on some issues and never got any serious attention (we finally just decided to give up) and there was a lack of guidance when we were trying to choose classes or information we were given turned out to be incorrect, the student body was very uninterested in welcoming new students in...very cliquish (especially if your student is not an athlete)...and there are really very few activities that are offered to create a sense of "student body" or encourage school spirit and cohesiveness. When we were there we had the worst year of school my kids have ever had. We moved specifically to get in to another school. Much happier now.

Had a child this year in school writing in blood in the girls bathroom. Doesn't make for a 4 or 5 star rating. As far as academics I give them a 3 for trying. Too lacks with students allowing them to turn in assignments after they are due or retaking a test for a better grade. The real world doesn't work that way.

We had a disappointing experience at Medlin where our child attended for 1.5 years. The counseling office provided no support when my child became ill and was unwilling to offer any assistance. The class sizes are very large and are not conducive to children who thrive in a smaller setting.

No matter the ridiculous reviews down below; No matter the rating of 4 stars out of 5. The issue I have is not with the testing scores and the academics, but with the facilities. Bathrooms are cleaned rarely and smell horrid, a pungent odor coming down the hall every hour of the day. There is often a thin mold growing on the water fountains. The approximate number of sick days per student a year is between 15-20 a year. I love the staff and the teachers, there to make you understand what you need to, there to understand you and learn from you, taking into consideration what they have learned and using it to teach the next grade level. DO NOT go to this school if you have a need for using the bathroom or for drinking water often, as like said, the facility it purely disgusting.

All of my nephews go to Medlin and they all have dyslexia and dsygraphia. Medline does not have a program for these special services and has been very difficult to work with. The kids have been extremely sad and frustrated at trying to get help.

Medlin is an amazing school. I had difficulties in math, and Ms. Boyle was an wonderful teacher, i understand everything now. 6th grade was a good year, and this year, im in 7th grade and everything is better than ever. I don't know how any parent would not want their child to go here! Mrs. Ellis is also a very good princable.

The staff at Medlin is exceptional. Their genuine concern for each student is evident as they encourage students to reach their highest potential.

No complaints about the academics. AP Math and AP Science classes were challenging and fun for my child. This school is very clickish. There is a School Uniform Policy which appears to have a 100% student opt-out (wasted money buying buying school uniforms as required by school handbook). Complaints to the district administration was ignored and not one phone call was returned. The on-campus police officer DID notice. I do not recommend this school.

The learing is fine but the cliques take over the school.

We found this school to have some dedicated teachers the first year we were there. Something happened the next year however and several teachers quit.We were not satisfied with this campus , the Special Education department in particular. We believe this is typical in Texas and wish we could find a Spec.Ed. Dept.willing to implement an IEP not just talk about it.As taxpayers we feel we received the short-end of the stick.

The teachers try, but fall short. They are probably at the mercy of their district and the rules that limit their thinking and creativity... but alas. Not a fan of the Texas Public School System, I have found that Northwest is particularly bad (when compared with say Keller). The parents are very involved. There are programs, but their gifted and talented program certainly falls short of great. The school is also very strict, which is kinda good and kinda annoying. Especially when each teacher calls you from each period because your child forgot their planner 1 time. I think that there may be other things to worry about.

This school is exceptional. Everyone expects the very best! The facility is spotless and safe. If all public schools were managed like this, private schools would cease to exist. I highly recommend this school for your children grades 6-8.

This school is the best. Students really want to get out of bed in the morning. Its so much fun to learn here. I think the best teacher at this school is Mrs.Mcleod the best math teacher in the world.

This school is great. I think Mrs.Ellis is a wonderful principle. She has made this school the best out of all the schools I've gone to. Thank you Mrs.Ellis.

Mrs. Ellis is a straight forward administrator. She says exactly what she means without mincing words. This applies to both parents and students. My 7th grader respects and admires our Principal as do I.
