  1. Congrats to MRH (and Brentwood); I have had the opportunity to see some of the math teachers in action when I substitute as a co-teacher. I am always very impressed and can honestly say there strategies and attitudes towards student learning are laudable. Very proud to be a member of the MRH community.

  2. Awesome for MRH and our community……Congrats to the math department and all of the district leaders. Results like this are why I have voted for every school related tax increase since we moved here in the late 90’s (and FWIW, our children attend private high school). To be ranked with the likes of the Parkway, Ladue and Lindbergh Districts can only increase demand for living in Maplewood…..good stuff.

    Congrats to Brentwood as well……..great school district……very impressive.
