    MCMS is a beautiful school with an excellent faculty. Small class sizes and "divided" age groups create a harmonious and peaceful atmosphere for learning. An outstanding middle school!

    This school provides a wonderful learning atmosphere. There are a lot of great teachers and staff who care about each child and their well-being. Parents are always encouraged to become involved and particpate in their child's educational experience. I highly recommend this school.

    There is a revolving door of teachers coming and going. A lot of parents think its becaues of the principal. I know a lot of our kids are upset that their favorite teacheers leave every year. I have to rate this school one star because of that and they put too much pressure on the kids to score high on EOG tests.
