Mendham Township Middle School Reviews

2 reviews
The school places a premium on quantity over quality, especially with math homework and night writes. One math teacher routinely assigns hours of iExcel homework rather than teach the kids math. The grammar teachers are mediocre to poor. Students report the teachers ignoring them in class while they play on their smart phones.

The school also has a bit of a social hierarchy. Some of the more popular kids form "clicks" and bully the less popular kids. The administration reinforces and enables this behavior by making the popular kids "peer leaders" and passing over the less popular kids. Casting for the HSA school musical tends to favor kids whose parents know the directors or have connections. Having seen first hand the auditions of many students and the performances at the end of the year, I can confidently say that casting is NOT based on the most talented kids. Ditto with the sports program. Kids who are really, really talented end up not making the team.

While there are teachers that do actually care about students and make learning an enjoyable experience they are greatly overshadowed by the huge push for exceptional test scores and the exorbitant amount of homework students receive. There is also a problem with the social ladder where if one doesn't fit a certain mold then they are treated poorly to a certain degree by the more "popular kids". However, it is important to note that this fades away pretty quickly in the high school.
