    Horrible school kids got maiced last week and there was a lock down and cops got called and of course the staff does not reach out to the parents and let us know what was going on I had to hear this from my child and see it posted on Facebook. I have a friend that was never notified by the staff or principal that her daughter was not allowed back at the school bc of problems the teacher was having with the student they decided to just tell the student to relay the message... The teacher said her child was rude and very disturbing well little did she know the student recorded everything the teacher said durning school session and let's just say the student was pulled out of the class as per her mother and that teacher walked out a few days later bc of her anger issues... Absolutely dissatisfied with this school I will be overly excited with joy when I can remove my child from this school.

    Is in desperate need of repair and a/c.........This school has been ignored to long. If we want our children to be better shouldn't we start by improving the learning conditions?

    This school is trashy. has roaches. Your kids do not learn anything when they go there. Theres not enough books to go around for a assignment. Teachers are unpresfessional

    This school is okay... I'm going there tomorrow and I just don't like most of the teachers. And the art teacher is outrageous. Reason why is because she threw a chair at me and left a bruise!

    I sent my daughter to this school for a week. I will say that this school has racial problems as well as there is no control over the students from the principal. Most of the teachers are really caring and want to go the extra mile for the students However with no control and no disipline from the principal of this school the students as well as the parents do what evr they want when they want.

    Medina is a great place to learn and and it is safe to learn. The teachers are nice the work is easy to understand and it is just a great place to be.The students should be in dress code at all times and should be diciplined at all times and should be college bound at all times. Go mustangs!

    Living in this area growing-up 15 years ago and my brother living in close reference to this school currently. I speak with knowledge of this school being a C- rated school as a overall preformance. I would say that the teachers care about the childs education but not enough to get really involved. The music programs in ths school is about a B+ the art programs a B and the sports programs are about a B-. I hope this helps someone out while deciding on a place to reside.

    Medina is the best middle school in Columbus Ohio. I was the helper of a peak techer named Mr Mitchell and he is very very very nice to me. But now I moved to Springfiel IL and wanted to admire him for his great work!
