Mellon Middle School Reviews

2 reviews
As a current eighth grader, I would say my experience isn't too bad. School is divided into two "teams" for each grade, with their own separate teachers. This can cause anxiety for students hoping that they will be placed on the same team as their friends. It's not really diverse, as many of the kids are upper-middle class white folks. I remember when I came to one of the elementary schools here from a school in the city, I was surprised to see a classroom full of white children (including myself). Despite this, noone at this school makes hateful remarks, and treats every race with respect. My favorite teachers are Kevin McCann (8th grade Iron Brigade conceptual physics teacher), Susan McDonald (7th grade Eagles history teacher), and Phil Hessler (art teacher). Julie Snyder (Tech Ed. teacher) and Jeff Holliday (8th grade Iron Brigade history teacher) leave a lot to be desired.

As a teacher at Mellon Middle School I am proud of all my colleagues, support staff, and administration who put forth their best effort each day. We do what’s best for our students, not what’s easiest for us.
