Mountainside Middle School - staff seems committed and very hard working. Front office is helpful, friendly and welcoming. Kids seem happy. Campus is clean and safe . . . a little worn in areas, but there are a lot of kids running around there! Art and music departments are what brought us there. Excellent music department! All sports are great and well organized adn attended, theater and choir department are taking off. Beautiful artwork displays. AZ needs to increase teacher's pay or all the fantastic teachers are going to keep leaving for private schools or other states. Class sizes in public schools are too large. Discipline in this school seems to be working - not sure how those teachers can manage so many students in one class. It is a very nice middle school with teachers and admin that care.
