    "Our 7th grade twins love this school. Everyone (from teachers and coaches to the entire administration) is committed to the students well being and education. This school 100% prepares the students for high school."

    "I wholeheartedly disagree with your assessment of this school. I think if you look at any surrounding schools in the area, you will see that Medea is among the most progressive with heavy implementation of the Common Core State Standards and has been for the last couple of years. There are NO research based texts available yet, as the CCSS have not been fully implemented and won't be for at least the next year. Sure, there are plenty of publishers claiming to be aligned, but they are not proven and purchasing anything at this time is not best practice. It appears you are looking for high school level teacher qualifications in a middle school setting. I don't think you will find that anywhere. The teachers are very well qualified and all are credentialed. As a parent, I am offended by your negative post about this wonderful school."

    "For those who consider moving to Oak Park because of "great schools" Things to check before the move 1. Teachers qualification. MCMS doesn't release much info on teachers, but available data is pretty upsetting. Out of 5 Math teachers 2 don't have ANY math or technical degree. None of the teachers got a degree from a reputable public university. There are no History/Social Studies teachers. These subjects are taught by the Language Arts teachers. 2. Curriculum. The school did not adopt the common core standard (which is very decent). The text book the school uses for Algebra "Algebra Connections" by Tom Sallee is not the best choice. Actually it is probably the one of worst choice. Not surprisingly, since the school teachers are very far from mathematics. The fact that the last edition of the book is 2006 is a red flag already. Popular textbooks get republished often. History/Language Arts/Social Studies/Science are taught using the standard California edition text books, nothing fancy, nothing extra. All efforts are put into getting high CST scores, no effort is "wasted" by teaching anything beyond the test questions. 3. Honor classes. MCMS doesn't offer any honor classes."

    "I love this Medea Creek Midle School, the teachers are great and easy to talk to in person and also by email, wich I find really convenien, the staff is so helpful on any question or inquire. As a parent I appreciate the involment of the Principal and Staff in the morning, keeping the children safe and most important making sure that the traffic not an obstacule for the children to get to school on time. The way that Madea is well thought is that they have the libary right in the heart of the school, where all the kids have to walk to go to the lokers and more, and them Books are not hiden in a big room, the books are expose to them every single day, I belive about visual and I think is fantastic. The children have their own hidration stations in the school, purified water for them to drink as they need, in other School by law they have to flash the fountain water in the morning to prevent levels of plomo. They tought about everything, less water bobles coming from home, we are looking forward a great Year at Madea Creek Midle School. I like like the way this year the school had the Madea Camp for the new children, that was a big plus, and they make the 8th graders participate."
