Our school is a blessing when it came to our child's educational needs. She's still mainstreamed within the classroom with others in her grade and leaves the room to spend focused time learning in a smaller group with another teacher for certain subjects. Our daughter has Aspergers Syndrome and has fit in very well at school. The teacher's are very open to communicating when we have questions or concerns and always available. We have a small group meeting with our child's teachers twice a year to touch base on how our child is doing, setting goals for our child and things we can do to help our child achieve the best education. The special education department has always went above and beyond in supporting our child and being available by phone, email or a visit. We never felt we were imposing and it has always felt more like a team effort among all of us. If we came across any materials or resources we felt might be helpful we always felt we could present them to share and several times we would share materials back and forth during the school year. It's a smaller school setting which allows more attention for the students. I highly recommend them to anyone.

My wife & I choose MCW Schools because it is one of the best schools in the state & in nation. Our daughter has excelled greatly. The staff is wonderful to work with & listens to our concerns. Anyone that has a problem with it has a problem child or is the problem.

Poorly organized curriculum. My daughter is a very good student. However since this school lacks proper structure, she is struggling. I do not want to send my child to Trimont Elementary for another year.
