Not the greatest school of all time. As a student I see things that happen inside like drugs, bullying, no kindness. majority of school is Hispanic. Overcrowded classrooms, graffiti, foul language, not a great learning system, school in need of TLC, disrespect, and discrimination, and lastly LOTS OF FIGHTS. Not returning next year.
As previously mentioned above my child started attending MFMS in 7th grade (now in 8th) and transferred from a local charter school Oxford Prep. Although we loved our charter school we needed a change and MFMS was the change my child needed! My child is thriving at MFMS, he is in all advanced classes and the teacher student ratio is very low considering it is a public school 26:1. My child excelled in the advanced classes and loves the teachers at MFMS. The teachers at MFMS really love their students and have an open door policy, think of the teacher from Freedom Writers in Long Beach, CA. During the teacher's lunch hour my child would eat his lunch along with the math teacher and get extra help in math. I later learned that all the teachers do this, not just the math teacher! This was unheard of at my child's former school. At my child's former school, if my child went into the classroom during the teacher's lunch hour for any reason my child would get in trouble! Another amazing thing about this school is parent population. The parents of the students at this school are very humble and hardworking parents, they are very grateful and appreciative of the teachers. I also like the fact that the boys and girls club is right across the street so my child can walk over after school!
Extremely happy with our experience here at Marco Forster. Love the diverse community, programs (Music and AVID are stellar in my opinion) and dedicated teachers.
I am a very happy parent! My child had such a good experience at this school. He was terribly bullied at his last middle school where nothing was done to help him. This school met all my expectations and beyond. Nice kids, great teachers, wonderful staff and administration. Rosie at the front desk is a doll. She was so nice to my child and to us, and really helped us out throughout the year. As a whole, the people at this school are real people ...kind and down to earth. I absolutely recommend this middle school!
