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.
THe best thing about this school is that they encourage you to constantly do your best and the saying here at Medlin really is true at medlin you never walk alone you always walk with someone by your side at all times.
I think this about the best school on earth because i am going there now. Teachers are very supportive
it rocks! it's the best school u have ever seen! the teachers are the best!
I love this school the teachers are understanding and love the students i learn plenty here. And are very tolerant i've gottern in trouble at this school that could've got me jail time but they take time to speak to you about the problems you may have teachers such as mrs.Savell,mrs.Mcleod,mrs.Haughland,ms.Myers,mrs.Shirley,mrs.Roach,mrs.Vineyard,mrs,warren,mrs gibbson,mrs murf,mr.Bixler, coach culberson,coach lovern,coach savell,coach lovern, coach knisley & mrs.Knisley,officer and mrs.Conklin,mr.Harrington,mr.Glancy,mrs.Ellis,mrs.Alwin,mrs.Seltzer,coach mayo,senora webb,coach kephart,coach sis,coach alred etc etc all these have their own personalities and are magnificent educators and i wouldn't recommend any other school on earth!
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.
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.
Both of my children have gone here; prepared them very well for High school.
two of my daughter attended medlin middle. there are good teachers and a good learning environment.they offer alot of extracurricular activities. they also have great parent involvement.
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.
