We have loved this school! Every teacher and staff member have gone above and beyond! Nothing but good to say about it!

I love STME! The principal is great and the teaching and support staff is above and beyond wonderful!!! My kids love going to school each day...I am constantly amazed at what they are coming home and telling me that they are learning. Both my son and my daughter have excelled in each of their grade levels. The principal, Mrs. Bichler, cares so much about the students. We couldn't ask for a more involved and helpful principal! The teachers are great! They are so wonderful with their students...they know those kids so well! They push their students to achieve the best and the kids rise to it! I love that I am able to volunteer so much in the classrooms!!!

Poor school at best. Principal not invested in best interest of child. Superintendent not concerned about it either. They are willing to take taxpayer's money but are not interested in well being of children.
