Big which may be hard for some but quality is wonderful. If your child is organized and a self starter they will thrive here.

I went to mbms for two years and I loved it. The principal was awesome, I learned a lot in class, and I'm excited to start my eighth grade year there. There is a lot of homework, but it helps you learn and makes the tests easier. The only class I didn't like was French, because the teacher makes you ...  Read more

This school is completely overrated. Teachers are non responsive, especially when you are actually trying to help your child -- I guess they aren't accustomed to parents actually participation in their child's education. Education is sub-par. The iPads are a joke -- some classes use online textbooks, ...  Read more

I'm a sixth grader at MBMS and so far I've been loving it here! The choral director is so nice and a great example for us students of what we can be in the future. The band and orchestra are amazing, too. The teachers are so helpful and give us challenging assignments which, as hard as they may be now, ...  Read more

What a fantastic school. From the recently built campus to the great leadership and caring teachers to the strong, involved student body, this is a public middle school that gets it. What's more, my kid ENJOYS school at MBMS (well, maybe not the homework) and is developing stronger study skills with ...  Read more

* In 2011-2012 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
