I don't know what the bad reviews are about. Personally I feel that the staff are awesome. You should trust me. Why, because I go there. Everyone is nice and I think that everyone at this school is very curdious. Excuse my bad spelling that's my only major problem with English.
We have had a very nice experience at MMS so far and we are half way done with our second year. They have even taken it upon themselves to go out of their way to call a meeting with all the teachers to help my son succeed in his classes. They do have one receptionist that can be a little curt at times, but believe she has good intentions. They use lots of technology in class as well to make it VERY easy for parents to be proactive in the children's education monitoring in real time assignments, grades and teacher communication. The only complaint thus far is there is no nutrition break and the food is HORRIBLE my son hates it. I have actually sampled cafeteria food from four different middle schools over the last two years and they do have the worst. LOL Other then the food that the School is GREAT, not perfect, but I believe one of the best in the the North West!!
Absolutely horrible staff. Called the school today, and was treated rather rudely and innapropriate. Expected more from the Mead school district. Have been with this district for generations. COMPLETELY UPSET - wow left an awful taste in my mouth. I have nothing nice to say.
Office staff was over the top with threatening "Becca Bill" when my 7th grader was sick for 3 weeks in spring. She is an superior student with normally very good attendance. Every absence I reported was met with a call from Councelor and followed up with demand for a doctor note. Had to have my Husband call Principal to deflate situation. My child's reputation for missing those days even followed her into her next year at MMS. Very good education, very parinoid staff.
My child was being pushed down a long hall by another student. He went straight to an aid to let her know. She did nothing, saying it didnt seem to have a sense of urgency. An hour later my son was atacked by that same student. My son had done the right thing but administration always feels that there is no victim.
I would not have purchased a home in the Mead School district if I had known what I know now. Every one raved about the Mead School district when we moved to Mead, now I realize how misinformed they were or they were using history not present reality. Mead Middle School is a very poor performer, especialy administration.
