I like this school except for one entitled worker who doesn't permit phones during lunch while my teachers do. She is very close to the principal.

Fantastic teachers and staff. They are attentive and care about their students. We have come from a private school and Malbu Middle School is superior by a long shot. The students watch out for each other and parent involvement is high, which makes for a much better and safer environment.
