We recently moved into the area and enrolled our son at this school. He was bullied by the other kids, and was definitely made to feel unwelcome The school was not up to par in academics and we were very disappointed. We pulled our son out of school there and are moving to another town to have a better school alternative.

It is a wonderful school. It is a small rural school that does a great job educating our young students.

I have been very pleased with MHES. My daughter has attended K-4. 4th grade has been somewhat disappointing, however. I would like to see an improved exceptional student program than the existing one. I am pleased that they are working on advancing the program. The principal is personable and responsive to issues. I would like to see a more relaxed school dress code, which allows imbellishments on jeans and does not require collars on shirts. Other than that it is a good dress code. The school cafeteria is providing healthy options, meals and drinks for students. The music, health, physical education, library and computer programs (specials) are a big plus. I would really like to see soccer added to football, basketball, track and softball activities. Overall, the teachers and staff are friendly, cooperative, available for discussions about your child and allow as much parent involvement as one is able to do.

About the tests


In 2013-2014 Florida used the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT 2.0) to test students in grades 3 through 10 in reading, 3 through 8 in math, in grades 5 and 8 in science, and in grades 4, 8, and 10 in writing. The FCAT 2.0 is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Florida. The FCAT 2.0 has 5 achievement levels, with level 1 being the lowest and level 5 the highest. Florida considers scores of level 3 and higher to be on or above grade level. The goal is for all students to score at or above level 3.

About the tests


Florida uses School Grades to measure the overall performance of a school each year on the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT). Each school is assigned a letter grade (A-F) based on three criteria: the overall performance on the FCAT, the percentage of eligible students who took the test, and whether or not students made progress in reading and math. The School Grades are calculated by adding points earned from each of the performance criteria listed above.
