    "The school is getting much better under the new principal. It seems that the principal is building a new team that is friendly, professional and helpful. Last year, the school was horrible that the some of the administration staff were rude, unfriendly and bullying, Unfortunately, the vice principal, Nash, is till there, she is a power hunger, mean, and enjoy screwing up people's life. Can't wait to see the day she leaves the school, than the sky of the muirlands would be blue. Don't know how she get to that vince principal's position??? She is the shame of our public school system, she brings nightmares to students and parents. If she ever becomes a principal, than our public school system really fails."

    "As an actual former student student of Muirlands, (I graduated 2014), I feel I have more expertise to speak on the quality of the school more than these moms who feel the need to complain about the lack of a sixth-grade language program. First of all, I think the parents who believe that the eighth grade teachers are significantly worse than the sixth grade teachers don't understand that in eighth grade it is excepted that students become more independent. In fact, I actually believe the eighth grade teachers taught the material the best. Muirlands just received a new principal who seems to bringing the school in great places with the involvement of technology. Many Muirlands teachers will give additional help to students IF THEY ASK. So if your child is struggling DON'T just expect for the front office to do something about it; have your child ask their teacher. As said in a previous review, when your child reaches eighth grade they will receive the opportunity to go on the East Coast Trip. THIS IS A MUST! As for the workload, it is somewhat high. It is nowhere near the amount Bishops gets, but it is more than other SD Middle Schools. So overall, Muirlands is a very good school."

    "Muirlands Middle School provides a mostly high-quality education. Your experience at this school greatly depends on the teachers you have. For example, my English teacher is extremely well-knowledgable and has been an extremely good influence, whereas some of my other friends with different teachers (I am in seminar) complain about their respective teachers. Recently, we have a gained a new principal, who has already began to improve Muirlands Middle School and I believe he will continue to improve the school. Previously, our campus was extremely- there's no other way to put it- gross. Now, he has really come down on the issue and you can see the improvement already. In addition, Muirlands Middle School provides a reasonable amount of choices of electives starting in 7th grade. Many parents complain about this, but as it is still a public school, I think that it would be slightly unreasonable to expect more. Overall, Muirlands Middle School exhibits a good example of what a public middle school should be like- to a certain extent."

    "This is my daughter's first year at Muirlands. I was so nervous since she started in 7th grade. I was scared since the kids would already be in clicks and not be nice. Let me tell you, all of the kids have been wonderful, she has made several friends and enjoys going to school. The teachers and staff are really nice and my daughter seems to be learning a lot. So far we are having a wonderful experience."

    "My son graduated from La Jolla elementary, an amazing school, and entered 6th grade this year at Muirlands. Not impressed with the standards here at Muirlands. We lived in AZ for five years before moving to CA, and my son qualifies for gifted education in the state of AZ, When he was tested here he scored in the 96th percentile (one percent below the cut-off for honors admissions). Apparently this school is so broke they can't afford to pull him into the gifted/honors classes he should be attending. And there is no foreign language for 6th grade either!! This school needs major improvements. It is such a shame. Needless to say, we will be moving back to AZ where he can receive the quality education that he deserves. Signed, Unhappy Parent"
