  • MP facilities are beautiful and clean. Administrators that really care about connecting with the community.
    On the other hand, many teachers do not have high expectations for students. Evidence of this is the reduced amount of homework, low quality instruction ( handouts are poorly written, not precise instructions etc.) A science teacher is not even using the book to guide his instruction, he has his own curriculum and parents still do not know if it was district approved. I hope that the school can improve his academic programs this year, otherwise taxpayers will not pass more parcel taxes for school beautification and facilities.
    Our kids deserve better.
