Teachers are not so great at teaching,there was more homework due to short periods (6 classes a day). There was also less time for tests ...  Read more

A great school that has good and bad teachers. You can get an amazing teacher OR a terrible one, but most likely you'll get a good teacher They offer a WONDERFUL programming club, where you can learn how to build websites, and much, much more!

Hands down the most enthusiastic middle school teachers possible. The principal is wonderful, very caring and capable. So many great programs, especially music, in addition to impressive academics. Very good vibe here, not your typical middle school. Great neighborhoods all around, quality people. Love ...  Read more

I agree with the comments of other parents, my child who had always been an honor student suffered a decline in grades while attending this school, particularly in 8th grade. There is a female 8th grade teacher who is incredibly cruel to her students. There is a lot of bullying in this school and Administration ...  Read more

Unfortunately my experience here was unpleasant at best. Daughter's grades suffered and meetings with teachers was not a possibility except with one teacher. Most teachers did not return calls or emails. Sadly the one teacher that did meet with us began accusing my daughter of lying, and then would apologize ...  Read more

This school is truly amazing! I came to this beautiful academy in the 6th and sadly had to leave in the 8th. Those 3 years were the best I had ever experianced. I met tons of friends here and the teachers here are awesome! I love Mesa Verde, the parents, staff, teachers, and students. I greatly recommend ...  Read more

This school is amazing! I came to Mesa Verde in 7th grade and I loved the experience. I met many good friends here and I had great teachers. I'm currently in 8th grade at this school, and I'm still liking the school. I certainly recommend it to any other students/parents who are thinking about joining ...  Read more

My child attended Mesa Verde for 8th grade only. We moved to this area from another state. My child's experience was less than satisfactory on many levels. The primary issue was that he had been in an accelerated/gifted class since he had been in the first grade at his old school. Mesa Verde had ...  Read more
