The majority of my child's teachers and school administrators have been very helpful in trying to work through ADD issues. As always, there are always a few bad apples, but at this school, they are few and far between.

Their main focus is to bring out the best in every child. They have learning labs to help c hildren reach their potential. The children have projects which are educational and fun. The teachers and staff are very professional and personable. They genuinely love teaching. The school has an excellent nurse who is most caring and concerned. I love this school. My two grandchildren go there, and I will not be happy when they move to another school in Hall County, which I am sure is just as professiional and dedicated.

I love this school. My son loves it too. He loves the playground. One for 3rd 4th and 5th grade. He also loves the libary, teachers, block time and math. It is a great school for any kid. Even if they are special ed or falling behind. And yes we do have S.E.A.R.C.H. because i heard some rumors that we dont have smart enough kids , to stupid to have that class, and to stuck up to hire a teacher for that class

We love CMES. My son started there in Kindergarten and is in 1st grade now. His teachers have all been so caring. They are good about giving him stuff to do if he finishes before everyone else. That helps keep him out of trouble. I would highly recommend this school.

I currently have two children in this school and I think it is a wonderful school. The teachers and staff are very informed and easy to talk with about my children. I really like the principal, she is a very understanding and helpful person. This is one of the best schools in Hall county, just ask my kids.
