Not much done for bullying. Most students are from a culture that demands kids to get A's. This is a High contributor to why percentiles are high. My child says many of her classmates freak out when they get B+ and comment : " my parents are going to kill me." Too much blah blah.

Develops character: Strongly agree

The small ratios between teachers and students allow the formation of relationships that emphasis individuality and responsibility. Kids simply do not slip between the cracks at this school. There is also a strong sense of community. Older students helping out with projects of the younger students, good extracurricular activities, and very few behavioral issues.

My daughter just completed her first year at Messmore. I could not be happier with the experience and her progress this year. The teachers are very caring and devoted. The parents group is very involved with the school and activities for the students. There are a few parents who 'drop and dash' but many volunteer as well. I wish it was a more modern building, but all of the hands on things the students use, media resources, computers, etc. are top notch.

My daughter is going into her second year at Messmore. So far, this school seems great. She has excelled in all academic areas. She has always been a bright kid, but this school (and the Montessori method) brought out the best in her. The new principal seems like a good fit for the school, too, as he is friendly, understanding, and proactive. Perhaps one negative aspect is the somewhat elitist attitude some parents bring, but that isn't necessarily against the school itself.

We are currently in the Pre-K program starting Fall 2014 (my son was in the nursery school program for the 2013-14 school year). I was concerned first about sending him to school 5 mornings a week, but he LOVED it and came out of his shell!) He enjoys the autonomy in the classroom and the fact that he has so many choices of what to work on in class. We chose this preschool specifically because it was Montessori AND a public school. We look forward to many more years at this public/montessori school. On a side note, the parking lot situation is a work in progress...with all the children being driven to/from school by parents, it's a bit hectic in the parking lot. I know there is a committee working on this and hope for some improvement this coming Fall.

I am writing this review on behalf of Messmore Elementary. I have had the pleasure of attending their end of year school event. It was so much fun and family oriented. You can tell the teachers and staff there care about their community. I hope they win the $5000 so they can continue to do great things for their students.

Great place for kids to enjoy a Montessori program and public school environment. Program is very detailed and gives the child to learn at her/ his own pace

The secretary is polite with students and that's the main point. If you think the secretary is rude, then maybe you are not being well-mannered towards her, and you need to work on your people skills. You can not boss schools' personnel. As for bullying, they do punish kids when it happens. If you know how to handle bullying, please give your ideas to the new principle, sincr you have high hopes on him. I agree with you, he is a great addition to the team.

I also feel that the staff is not properly trained or effectively handles bullying. I have high hopes for the new Principle who seems to be on top of things. As for the office staff, I can only say that yes, the secretary is rude and needs to retire.
