    "Teachers seem outstanding & leadership is responsive. Management of my sons ADHD is OK, however I think questions of how his IEP is being implemented or advocating my sons legal rights to will be met with a fight. Separately, McConnell is quick to pull out a handbook and reference rules that are mainly written not to protect Gwinnett County Schools, so READ YOUR HANDBOOK . Many of the rules leave a lot of room for interpretation by the school. I came to observe my daughter in her classroom after emailing the teacher and leadership beforehand and checking into the main office as a visitor. I was treated like an intruder leading a terrorist attack against the school. The open door policy is not open door. Many of the rules (county wide) are extreme and unbalanced. (Ex.- My daughter is expected to keep her bookbag and trumpet on her lap for bus safety. She comes home indentations on her laps from the weight. The response was "We are not responsible for transporting her trumpet although she needs it for school." Huh? No recess and lunch is super short. This school and county "fits the bill" but research some private schools if you are looking for a more balanced approach."

    "This school is a mixed bag of good and bad. There are some real wonderful teachers who are concerned, responsive, and dig to find the individual and elevate their strengths. Sadly, there are also a few who are not interested or, worse are climbing the Principal ladder which is so easily climbed in Gwinnett. While good relative to other area schools, there is always a problem on every team. Be willing to advocate hard for your student and do not expect the admin to advocate for your child. They are there to defend teachers. Be a strong source of listening and if necessary go to bat on your student's behalf. You are the only one interested in your student's rise above mediocrity."

    "I am a parent, my kids had a great experience here, we would stil be at MMS but due to the stupid district change, we are now at the Bay Creek school, I so far cannot even compare the two, as Bay creek is such a mess, no one knows what is going on, and there is no help for the kids who are behind, tons and tons of homework and just not the same interaction with parents that MMS has to offer, those luckey enough to not be moved to the horrible Bay Creek Middle, McConnell has wonderful teachers willing to help in most anyway including coming early and staying late to help your child with work. Dont expect the same from other middle schools."

    "We have just finished MMS. We spent 3 years there and received an excellent gifted education, but I have some concerns about 2 new programs: the WAM and MAT programs. Gwinnett County claims to focus on teaching and learning, but these 2 programs tend to take away over 1 hour of instruction per week for the students. WAM is a weekly advisement time of about 40 minutes in homeroom and MAT is an enrichment/tutorial period of 30 minutes of 1 to 2 times per week. This time is built into the daily school schedule of an already packed school day that needs to be devoted to teaching and learning. Plus, I am confused as to why a school that has free 45 morning tutorial sessions every Wednesday before school needs to have another time of tutoring built into the school day? I feel that MMS may be lowering its standards."

    "MMS is an ok school. Test scores are good. Very crowded school tons of trailers. Principals are not usually available. Unless they want to harass your child about something. Strict dress code to 'Some Students' not all students. Teachers for the most part somewhat bias towards certain students. Maybe the students that have attended mms since 6th grade...all of their middle school life are probably the happiest...or the students who's parents are well known in the community. Please think about the adverse/scarring effects before moving to mms area. Some incidents that has happened to my child but not all...I cannot mention due to (terms of use). Please think twice before enrolling your child. Once you're in the mms area purchasing a home you're kinda stuck for a while. Not all teachers or principals fall in to the not so good group...but 75% does."
