Open Quote Just enjoyed my daughter being able to attend a very good school. She graduated and is now a Nurse in the Air Force USA yes very good school. Close Quote

Open Quote My child is now starting her 7th grade year at MMS.
I can say that she absolutely loved her 6th grade year. They wisely keep the 6th graders isolated from the older kids, something that us parents who went to 7th & 8th grade "Middle Schools" can appreciate.
She really liked most of her teachers and really enjoyed band. The Band director is a shinning example of what we wish all our educators aspired to be.

7th grade has just started for her and so far she has no problems.

So, educationally I give this school pretty high marks. I also give it high marks "discipline" wise. They have a zero tolerance policy that has made some parents bristle ... but then again, most bullies have parents who think their little angles are always just misunderstood victims. My child follows the rules, gets good grades and so far, I feel safe about her there.

I do have a negative. During the April 27th tornado outbreak, there was an F0-F1 that passed over the school at tree top level. Although they had plenty of warning (my child said her science teacher had a radio on in the classroom and they could all hear that the storm was headed their way) the school waited until the last possible second to get the kids into the hall. My daughter said she had just stepped foot in the hall when the lights went out and the doors blew in. Apparently, they still had kids upstairs as well.
Had that tornado been on the ground or stronger, the results could have been truly tragic.
I have now informed my daughter that if she knows a tornado is headed her way she is allowed to immediately excuse herself to the hallway and I'll do the detention for her. :) Close Quote

Open Quote Monrovia Middle School just started a program called "Every Assignment, Every Time". What this program essentially does is if a child forgets their homework, they fill out an EAET form and can bring their homework in the next day for 75% credit. If they fail to bring in the completed assignment the next day, they will attend Saturday School (school on Saturday from 8:00-12:00) and complete the assignment for 60% credit. If they do not attend they will complete two days of Saturday School instead of just one. Mr. Brown approved this plan because over 90% of the failing students would not be failing if they had completed their homework. Students can also be given Saturday School for discipline reasons.

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
