Mears Middle School Reviews

There are those who will have and those whom will not. This is the overall takeaway from Mears. If you don't fit inside their pretty little boxes you're out! Gifted students are made up of the popular and moldable, stay inside the box and you'll be fine. Principle has thin skin!!

For a middle school, Mears is extremely divided. Teachers don't work to diminish the middle school drama and instead let their classes brew with mean rumors and bratty talk. Not enough is done to keep students safe, happy and out of trouble. Not enough discipline in general.
Teachers have tenure and don't have to push students that are in the gifted program. IEPs aren't followed up on and it's generally lacking. There are multiple teachers who are rude, judgmental and face no penalty for poor performance or poor behavior
