Mendham Township Middle School is an academic pressure cooker. My children got great grades but the amount of schoolwork assigned was absurd & pointless. There is no feeling of MTMS being a caring community. Unfortunately, my children described the school as being as cozy as an abandoned bus terminal at midnight. After a long day at school our children looked like stressed out zombies. It's unfortunate the lack of importance the student's overall well-being gets taken into consideration. Basically don''t go to MTMS it's horrible.
