    "I daily regret our recent move to Oak Park. The school is not at all what we had expected. Don't get me wrong all teachers know the textbook content. But that's all. The textbook is an absolute ceiling for the 90% of the teachers here. Students have to accept the fact that there will be no answers to the questions beyond the book content. With teachers only capable of reading textbook paragraphs aloud the point of education is completely lost. When I look at the property tax form and see $1300 in extra taxes we had paid to OPUSD plus $300 in donations, the only thing I have to say is WTH. Is my family paying for the 40 kids per classroom, or for the fact that my child didn't get into an elective class of her choice, because there was no space available, or for the teachers who come unprepared for classes, or for them not sending home a single graded test in a year so I had to take time off work to come to school, only to find out that teacher had made several mistakes in the test answers - hate to think how many times my child was given a lower grade before, or for the dirty and smelly 10-year old textbooks that my child is using? IMHO, MCMS is not worth a single $."

    "The teachers are not up to mark. They do not know how to solve math problems, It is just hype. The teachers do not come prepared for the classes. They google the math answers and tell just the answers , do not know how they arrived at the answer, if questioned they feel offended and yell at kids."

    "I'm not impressed with the school. The major disappointment of this year is the refusal of the school administration to take measures to resolve the issues in the foreign language class. Multiple complains by parents and students, were completely ignored and now we would have to get a tutor to be able to continue into the level 2 class. I've been told by many parents of the OP high school graduates that tutors are the must in this district, but I was not expecting that foreign language tutor would also be needed. The biggest overall disappointment with the district is their hiring policy. OP district does see the need in investing into experienced teachers. Most of the teachers hired in the recent years had zero years of experience, no appropriate degree or degrees from some odd places. It is all getting to the point of ridiculous - we are living in the area with public universities rated among the best in teacher education and yet we are getting no benefits from that fact. As to the comment that "one should not expect high school quality teachers in a middle school" MCMS offers several HS level classes I actually did expect qualified teachers at least in pre-algebra and algebra."

    "There are some reasonable teachers at Medea, however, especially in the language arts, the teachers are pushing these 6-8th graders into insanity. The large homework and projects along with starting every morning by screaming at the kids, doesnot present the school system having any control over whatever each teacher wants to do. The other problem is in the math department. They use a book for Algebra that has no instruction and common core also does not require the teachers giving lectures on algebra. Imagine the frustration and dislike it creates for math by frustrating the kids. PE coaches push the kids to the point that they become anxious over PE."

    "MCMS is a fabulous middle school. The staff and parents work well with each other to ensure that the students have the necessary materials required to achieve greatness."
