School Reviews

  • Recommended January 18, 2013 - Malow Junior High School is amazing. I''d recommend it to anyone in a heartbeat. The school is always very clean, surprising because of the number of students. Great academics. Pheonominal teachers. Extra police were brought in to protect the school''s students and faculty after the Sandy Hook shooting. - Posted by Student/Alumni
