Mossy Creek Middle School Reviews
I am not impressed by Mossy Creek Middle School. They spend more time on "making daily rules" for the kids. Have you heard of "pick your battles"? This seems to have been lost in schools. Set up basic rules. For those who don't follow ... give them individual punishment. You are turning good kids into angry kids with so many rules.
Also, quit selling! I hate getting phone calls from the teachers or staff saying go out and sell sell sell that fundraiser. Teachers seem to spend more time on setting rules, promoting the sports, and selling selling selling. They need to spend more time on figuring more creative fun ways to learn.
This schools seems to rely on printouts to teach. I suppose that way they teach directly to the standards. There is not much creativity in their teaching. My son brings home these pages and pages of handouts printed off from some ridiculous online site (the font is about 6 point). You can barely read it. I guess they hide the fact it would have been 8 pages long at 12 font. Terrible amount of homework considering they take "powerpoint notes" a lot in school. Where is the teaching? I wonder these days.
