    "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."

    "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."
