    This is my third daughter going to school in Mad River. If you asked me before to review this school I would of had nothing but good things to say. But my youngest is special needs child and it is my opinion that they can not handle special needs children. She needs a smaller class setting and they do not have that so the way to handle it for them is she only goes 3 hours a day. She is in my opinion loosing out. It is not her fault that she can not handle a regular class setting. I do believe that the overall staff is a good quality. But they are just not equipped to handle student such as my daughter.

    My daughter is currently enrolled in the mad river district and I find that they work hard to meet the needs of all of their students with a variety of options and an open forum in which I am able to directly participate. I attended the district from K-12 receiving an excellent education and look forward to see my child receive the same opportunity. Parents have ample opportunity to become involved with their child and school they just have to say yes makes it easy and fun!

    Until Middle School my child had not issues. My child attended Mad River Schools from Kinderrgarten on. MRMS staff seem to care little about students their success or grades. They also lack in communication skills. I would not suggest MRMS to anyone wanting a decent education for their child.

    My son has been attending this school for 2 years now and it doesnt seem that the teachers care about if the students fail or not . I wouldnt want my children to attend this school again.

    I noticed a homework assignment my son had done and I told him he could have done much better. Why did he turn it in like this? He said mom they are just happy to have a student actually turn in their homework. Pitiful!
