very great school. some teachers are not so good but they are outnumbered 5/1. We have band, orchestra, choir, jazz band, and music keyboarding/dance so we have lots of music. PE is mandatory to take(some students cant because their schedules don't allow it). We also have cultural art and regular art, wilderness safety, business education(this one is pretty bad but we do have it), and wood shop/applied tech. Overall great school! would reccommend. Now i will give gruening 1/5 because mlms is better.

It is a very nice looking school with great facilities. However, Some teachers at the school use ridicule or put downs to get their points across in class. The curriculum is good, however it is sometimes hard to track what the children are supposed to do. Some responsibility goes to the child however, parents need a place they can check to see that everything is as it should be. The school also seems to be so focused on their music program they don’t pay attention to much else.

Mirrior Lake Mirror School lacks in many areas.First acedemics.Teachers teach at a lower area than where student at the age range should be.Second it lacks parent involment.Students are almost hardley ever punished for inapropiate behavior.Last but not least it is very divided.Only 2 precent of the school is african american and everyone is divided into thier onwn racial backgrounds.
