Moved from the UK and placed our daughter in MCE. She has been there for 2 years and loves the place. All teachers and support staff are wonderful!

My daughters have attended Maize Central since they opened! They both have enjoyed school and learned so much in the 5 years they have been students. I would recommend this school tp any one looking for quality in learning in the public school system.

We recently moved to Wichita, and when we were searching for our home, the Maize school district was highly recommended to us by several people. We enrolled our 2 children at MCE back in December, and we were welcomed into this school with open arms, and could not have been happier with the administration, their staff, and the wonderful teachers our children were assigned to. No wonder everyone spoke so highly of them. We love MCE!!
