Wow...I'm really shocked that this school receives an 8 on this site. It is one of the worst schools I've ever had the displeasure to be associated with. Towards the end of the school year, all classroom learning stops to prepare for state testing. If you have a child with disabilities, forget about them receiving an "appropriate" education. The administration changes frequently. It's an embarrassment to this community.

This school has little to no support for students with disabilities. My child never even has a chance to come into contact with other children with no disabilites. I feel that this is a step backwards for MS. Yes the walls are colorful, but in the end the walls do not matter, education does.

This is a great school. The teacher are great and the walls and floors are so colorful. All other schools have plain walls. This school has color everywhere. The students are well taken care of and are educate to full extent.
