Open Quote I removed my child (1st Grade) from MPTS last year. Apparently, they have some sort of Pre planned curriculum.
They appear to be in "Receive Mode" -- They’re waiting to be told what they have to do, and that’s not going to bring success to an individual child. You have to have teachers who are empowered to facilitate great teaching. Close Quote

Open Quote My child attended MPTS grades K-5. In those Six (6) years I witnessed the Arrival and Departure of FIVE (5) different Principals ! As Trump would say, "Bad, Bad School." Its as if, the Teachers are not allowed to be independent thinkers ( Pre-approved curriculum and they follow it with No Deviations). The problem with that is, the Curriculum is seriously lacking. Fortunately, my child was in TD classes during his time at MPTS but I still had to Supplement his education at home (worksheets, Apps., elaborate on topics, etc).
Students with Behavioral problems exist in an abundance !!
And last but not least, Money talk$ at this school - the more you Spend and give, the more attention/recognition your child will receive (and believe me, they're constantly petitioning for Party supplies, School supplies, Money for field trips, Money for parties, etc.)
To sum, MPTS a has a 'FEW' Great teachers but Most are Mediocre or worse. The first 3 years were decent and We stayed thru 5th grade because his neighborhood school was unacceptable. Close Quote

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.
