    This school is amazing. The staff and PTA work together to provide oportunities for the students. The sports programs are competative as well. The honors program has worked very well for my kids to keep them interested and challenged.

    This school has many fights and is lowly funded and has few of the books they need for there projects

    Hard working staff that cares about their students

    I believe that MVMS has had a bad rap. The staff are dedicated to improving students academic growth as well as their mental and emotional growth. My child attends school here and is happy to go to school everyday. They are preparing students for WASL with WASL programs offered in school as well as after school. I am proud to have my child there and appreciate the dedication of all his/her teachers. Communication is not a problem and teachers are more than willing to talk with you whether by phone in person or by e-mail.

    this middle school has a wonderful choice for the lunches. the students here can get wild but then it gets taken care of with the great detention teachers. the school will have a new building next to it in 2007-2008 class.

    This school was awful. The teachers weren't helpful and often lacked knowledge in the subject they were supposed to be teaching. The music program was horrible. My child only had one teacher that she actually learned anything from her math teacher. The sixth grade vice principal didn't seem to like children parents or other people in general. We transferred to Fairview this year along with many other students.

    We had several problems last year (2003/4) especially with the assistant principal. I was not notified of in-school/out of school suspensions problems my son was having with other students or teachers. Fortunately the teachers were more receptive and agreed to meeting all together as a group and discussing ways to improve my son's behavior and academic standing. Hopefully this school year will be better due to the hiring of a new principal.

    My kid is in school to learn but with reasent events of threats and physical abuse while under the supervision of teachers (during classes) has made it difficult for us and him to get an eduction we do not condone violence we do how ever belive in defending ones self against others The teachers must be held accountable for our kids health and safty at all times.

    The overall test scores at this school are troubling. Something is definately not right here.

    I would say that if a parent doesn't know how a student is doing in school there has been no visit at open house no open parent-student dialog no observation of the student's first progress report in autumn no visit at parent conference time and what more can be said? Do you know that your student got home with the mandatory progress reports until 'the end of the year.' If you somehow managed to be oblivious of all of these standard reporting times I understand why your student was not doing well. You were as disengaged as your student. Why did you wait until the end of the year? It was too late then.

    we were not informed of our child's academic progress or lack of until the end of the school year.
