Every teacher I've worked with is always prepared to engage my children each day in learning, in particular their science, Orchestra, art, Life skills, English, and history teachers. Most of their Math teachers have been excellent too, but with the change over to the Common Core Curriculum, and lack of honors math as an academic option in 7th & 8th grader my daughter was not given enough one-on-one or group instruction to help her succeed. She loved her 6th and especially her 7th grade math teachers, but her 8th grade math teacher (who usually taught Honors Math in 8th grade) was lacking in academic training skills between her and her students who wanted to learn. I've been super impressed though by how much each teacher puts into giving my children and other students the opportunities to succeed in presenting their own findings (such as Science or English classes throughout our 6th-8th grade experiences). In particular, MMS has started having their 8th grade students do two major PACE projects each year (District mandatory Science, and school mandatory English research project on a career, training, schooling, cost of training/schooling, etc.). I hope that MMS will continue to open their classrooms to utilizing Junior Achievement of Idaho training (such as budgeting, career planning, savings plans, etc., etc.) into their daily curriculum from now on.
