Great school. They really have an open door policy! My kids' teachers are very involved and connects with my students! The teachers call or email me when needed. Both principals are awesome. I feel as if they are getting a great education at SMCES!

SMCES is a great school! The teachers teach and are concerned about their students' educations. The principal supports her assistant, as well as her staff. Overall, I believe the children receive a quality education.

The entire staff at this school is excellent! My kids attend this school and I love the communication that the teachers have with me concerning my kids. The teachers contact me whenever my kids are not up to par in their school work. I love the fact that I don't have to wait until parent/teacher conferences to find out what is going on with my children. I give this school 10 stars!
