As a former student I'd like to say that MTS prepared me emensly for college. I tested out of both Freshman English and all my math courses for college. The teaches are there for the students who need them and the new teachers blend right in .

This is a middle class school with potential. Their theatre arts program is wonderful. The teaching is somewhere in the middle as there are committed teachers as well as burned out teachers. I would like to see more teacher-parent involvement. It is in a quiet location with nice amenities.

This is a good middle class school. There are not alot of students per teacher which keeps the class size down. They have nice amenities such as a pool and planeterium which alot of others school do not.
