I would like to see more administration care for the students and more welcoming. The school overall is a great and just small things can be tweaked to make the school nearly perfect. The school is so small so everyone is friends with everyone and rarely a fight occurs. The environment at the school is great, and is a great school overall!

I think the best part of Mardela is that it is a small school. Everyone knows everyone. The worst part would have to be the fact that it is a middle and high school. It allows older and younger kids to be able create a mentor/mentee relationship, but it also makes middle schoolers grow up a little too quickly. It exposes them to inappropriate high school things. It doesn't give high schoolers the opportunity to feel like they've started to grow up because they walk into the hallways and middle schoolers are running around like madmen.
I’ve gone to this school since I was in middle school! I love how the teachers take the time to really make sure every student succeeds. They have tutoring for each subject after school at certain times and I have found it really helps me with whatever I am struggling with. We are family oriented and treat each other with respect.
