Medlin Middle School1

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.
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.
