    Maxwell / my school is the best They have amazing inter-active teachers that help us learn a lot & never leaves any of us behind. Me & my friends are doing amazing & we all have an A. I think my school deserves that 5 000 dollars.

    My son just transferred into Maxwell Middle School this year from a middle school in Indianapolis. I expected a little more personal treatment than I have witnessed thus far but on a positive note I have seen a change in his attitude. I think some of the teachers tend to label students rather than put forth an effort to reach them. Overall I would have to say the move has been a positive one.
