My daughter was a good student, earning a's and b's at her previous school, until attending this school. She has struggled with being bullied by students and by teachers. It has come to a point where I cannot get her to go to school and I am going to have to enroll her somewhere else. The teachers care about students that are already succeeding and leave struggling students behind. This school lacks in technology and more importantly ethics. The principal told met she does not have time to deal with troubled students and students don't have the right to take away from her day. I'm looking forward to a change for this school because there are many struggling students that need more than this school is providing. Teachers expect MS children to take on more responsibility than they are used to and do not provide any flexibility. Most teachers assign daily homework that is due the next day. Students are unable to participate in activities if they are on an ineligibility list, but it is not difficult for a student to get there. The inability to participate in school activities further drives a students uninterest in school if they are already having a rough time fitting in.

This school honestly is trash. Not in the way it looks, but in the way everybody, including teachers, act. As stated in another review, teachers and staff show favoritism. For example: if your parents work at the school, you get treated so much better, and of course if you are a Presley of Francka, you get looked up to. Not fair for all of the other students. Also, students there need to learn to be polite for once and also stop picking favorites and discriminating. I often have my kid coming home complaining about how one peer is being extra mean. UNCALLED FOR! This is a school, not a jungle gym. Teachers are the next issue. Especially highschool and middle school teachers. They are horrible. All they do is teach a lesson thinking that the kids understand, even if the don't. Teachers need to stand over each kid working them through individually until they get it. My kids grades are suffering from this. Ridiculous.

Marion C. Early is the worst school that I've ever been to. They are ages behind most of the other schools in Missouri. The teachers show favoritism to names such as the Franckas, and Preslys. I wish I had a way out of this school.

MCE has a background of graduating seniors that go on to be professionals in their chosen filed, mainly through the teaching and encouragement of excellent, caring educators and school board members. Hopefully a bond issued will be passed for a new high school!

Ive been at this school for 3 years and me and my family are not very happy with it. The school is falling apart and the town wont pass the levy to build a new one. The school is extreamly small therefore provides good one on one attention but they teach a lot of the same things year after year. I came from another school in a different part of the country to here and they are so far behind that were still learning things that I learned in my other school 3 years prior. They dont offer football and a lot of other sports.

This is actually a student. This school may not be the best but we are the nicest. Each time we get a new student they never have trouble fitting in. Even since most of are students are white when we had african-americans come to our school they fit in easily. Trust me kids love this school the teachers will do anything to help but we may not have all the stuff but we will do anything. One more thing we dont have football. :(

The DESE district manager said that this school has 'internal problems' that need to be addressed by the board. Hopefully they will take care of these issues, so that our children do not suffer the consequences.

Mrs. Killian has done a great job with the high school. There are still a few teachers there that should probably look into finding new professions, but overall, MCE is one of the better schools in Polk County.
