    I'm currently a new student at Mount Hebron Middle School and have just entered the seventh grade. Most of the kids have known each other since preschool but they're all very welcoming and helpful. It's easy to fit in and basically drama-free. Good teachers good students good school. It is very diverse and kids help new kids get to their classes. All of the kids stick with their groups but they're always happy to add new members. It's fairly big and there are 5 houses that the kids are assigned to. A house is basically a floor where the child's homeroom and locker is located. Kids constantly leave their house throughout the day to get to their other classes located on other floors. House 1 kids stick with the same students and teachers for all three years as well as House 2 House 3 House 4 and House 5 kids do. You can take Spanish or French. There are many of electives offered. There's a A & B-day block schedule. English Math Social Studies and Science are mandatory but the rest are up to you. All kids take gym and have a gym locker. Children with special needs get an equal education and are mixed up with the other kids at gym. There is a fair amount of work challenging.

    I have to say that this school did not prepare my daughter for the higher level courses at the high school. As a straight A student in middle school we had hoped that she would not struggle with work load. However the teachers at the high school told us that the mt. Hebron kids struggle the most particularly with science while A students from the other 2 middle schools have easier transitions. We believe that is correct..our daughter is in renaissance and having a very high quality education while my older daughter had what I now understand to be an extremely poor middle school education. My recommendation is to not risk it...unless your kid needs a less rigorous education for a specific reason...just DON'T allow them to put your kid in Mt. Hebron unless you make a point to provide extra academics on the side so they will be able to be in the same place as their peers from the other schools. Mt. Hebron languished for too long....it's broke and I really don't think a new tech lab or more extra curriculars can fix it. Its unfortunate...and completely unfair to unsuspecting parents! what a mess...

    This school has undergone a wonderful change in the past 2 years; with new principals new schedule new vision. The best is yet to come for students!

    What a difference a year makes. Under the leadership of our new principal and energetic PTA Mount Hebron is resuming its academic strides and sense of school community. We are very pleased with Mount Hebron's dedicated teaching staff and learning environment.

    This school is really fun. All the teachers are amazing and I've learned a lot from them. I'm in 7th grade.

    I loved the school. The teachers were great and the learning environment was bettet than I could hope for. I loved having A and B days so I was able to learn so much more in a huge block of time compared to 45 minute classes every day. The school itself was amazing and the fact that it is a technology-based school is so much fun. Almost everything was done on computers and I learned so much about typing microsoft excel spreadsheets computer animation and so much more. Honestly I would not be where I am today if not for the great experience at Mt. Hebron. Currently I am a high school student and I really miss this school.

    this is a terrific school for a child that has been held back from private school.

    The school has small class sizes making it easier for student and teacher to have a better relationship. The school is separated into five houses. The student will stay within that house for the entire time enrolled as a student. Changes of schedule are easily made. Students interact with the same people throughout the three years. At lunch two houses are combined. There are four blocks in the day and A and B days. A days has a set schedule as does day B. Students will find that the middle school is much different from the high school because of the 'togetherness' in the high school the kids will be separated. Overall the school is okay. If your child is into technology this school is great if they are interested in the performing arts Glenfield would be a much better choice. School buses pick the students up.
