Open Quote If the previous principal, Mr. Stauffer, were still at MMHS, I would rate this a 5 start school. However, the current administration, Mrs. Batts, does not care about the staff, students or community. She is bringing the whole school down. What a shame. This school used to be excellent.

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.
