    "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"

    "PARENTS - PLEASE READ: Let me sum up your kids' experience at Muirlands: 6th grade is awful, 7th grade is OK, and 8th grade is an amazing experience. When you first enter the school, you'll find the administration to be very unhelpful and rude, the campus/student/teacher atmosphere extremely unpleasant. They make absolutely no effort to make the incoming 6th graders welcome, but just help your child get through the year and push to make sure they get all the good teachers. Although there's no teachers that are truly awful, there are some unpleasant ones that can quickly ruin your year. In 7th grade, the Yosemite trip is a good experience, and in 8th Grade - MAKE SURE YOUR CHILD ATTENDS THE EAST COAST TRIP. It's an incredible learning & social experience where they spend a week traveling on the east coast cities with some of the best teachers. Although the administration, campus, and teachers are all pretty poor in 6th and even 7th grade, your child's amazing 8th grade year will more than make up for it. Check RateMyTeachers.com to see who the best teachers are, and who's not. There's some really hard classes and also really lazy ones."

    "PLEASE READ IN FULL!.. I am a parent of a student that went to muirlands for two years, and my child did very well the first year. The second year however my child started to struggle a little with math and they immediately wanted to get my child tested. They said my child needed an IEP and they couldnt provide what my child needed at their school. It was my first child, I was ignorant in the ways of test scoring and school funding.In my opinion We were BULLIED out of this school!! I realized a few years later that the diagnosis was bull. In my opinion they basically didnt want my child bringing down their scoring. PARENTS DONT GET AN IEP until you have outside testing done. It is easy to get a child on an IEP but SO HARD to get your child off one. In my opinion this school is all about scoring and funding and have no room for empathy or nurturing. I was appalled by our treatment once I figured out what really went on . I do take some responsibility, I should have done my homework. Now my child has this on school record for the rest of my childs life. My child wanted to join the Marines and cant now because of the IEP. Be a ver involved parent, fight for them, they sure wont."

    "I attended Muirlands Middle School for 8th grade. The school was nice, kept well and most of the teachers were amazing. I was robbed at the school and school officials did nothing. I was bullied by other students that I did not know and reported this to three different teachers nothing was doing. The bulling never did stop, until a group of the bused in kids had some words with the bullies and the bullying stopped. I was rejected from the 8th grade trip to DC then the school turned around and asked me to donate money so other students could go. ( I still have the reject letter and the donation request letter). I had a terrible time making friends, because the cliques were so tight knit. La Jolla High was just as bad for me as well. I left after the 9th grade."
