    MMS is a good school. I'm puzzled by some of the negative reviews here. My kids have done well there and have enjoyed it. I suspect the few parents and kids that have problems with it are clueless as to what a middle school is all about. These kids are trying to figure out how to become young adults and there are greater expectations on them... some may not like it but that is part of the education.

    As a parent of a student of MMS I was terrified on what my child would tell me that happened in the school! My child came home upset because one of the teachers there told his class that he didn't Care about any of them! My child also told me that the teacher slammed scissors on her desk and broke a ruler on a classmates desk the teacher also threw a clipboard at the Lockers almost hitting a student! I WAS STUNNED! TO HERE ABOUT THIS! The most upsetting thing is that children in MMS don't refer to the school as SCHOOL but as jail! Also that the children don't get All punished the same the same even if its for the same reason! What hurt me the most is I went in the school one day to have lunch with my child I cought a teacher there yelling at my child beyond what is appropriate! Also my child told me that two of her classmates were pushed by a teacher" what happened to learning without being affraid to ask a question? My child told me that A

    As a parent I am infuriated with this school system. The teachers that I have encountered have been sub par and are only there because the system has a hard time both recruiting and retaining highly qualified staff. My daughter has been completely unhappy and often complains that she is not learning like she did before we moved here. She often complains that her teachers are teaching from behind their desks or are passing out worksheets to keep them busy. What happened to formative assessments? What happened to administrative walk-throughs? Needless to say we are leaving and finding her a school elsewhere because the education that the students receive here is horrible. There are no opportunities for the students here to succeed and the majority of them will be fighting over who will work at the local Subway sandwich shop. It seems that in rural areas the quality of education is horrible and teachers do not care as much because they know they will most likely not be replaced. In my humblest opinion this school should merge with another system that has its "thing" in place because WCPS needs a big brother to help it become established.

    I taught there briefly during 2008. There are a lot of improvements going on within all of Westmoreland County schools. Of course there is always room for more improvements in the future. There are less fights than before and lots of support between the teachers and parents.

    My problem with Montross Middle School is the large amount of fights and bullying that goes on in the school. Some type of classes need to be set up for the kids that are fighting and bullying. Let them attend these special classes to learn that fighting and bullying is not the answer to their problems. Also the punishments are not the same for different children. Have a set punishment and stick to it - don't let the parents dictate how long a child gets ISS or is suspended. This school needs a major crackdown to the discipline problems and lack of respect for the teachers!
