Mesnier Primary offers a wide variety of activities for even the youngest students. There are types of clubs and/or activities within the school day and outside of school for students to participate and learn beyond just the classroom (math clubs, singing, etc). There is a wonderful before and after care option for those who need it. Summer camp opportunities that are great for working parents and the kids have a blast. Affton has it's own bus system as well, where many schools don't have this as an option or it's an additional charge. The teachers, support staff, administrators, and principle(s) are very intelligent, supportive, and caring for the students. We have 2 children that attend Mesnier and we are extremely pleased with the schools overall performance and level of safety.

My son is actually at Affton Early Childhood Center, and they have been great with helping him. They spotted that he was having attention and language deficits, and put him in a great class to help him with that. The IEP team works very well and works hard to include my opinion. I really feel like they listen to me and we are a team.

I have children both in kindergarten and second grade this year at Mesnier. I have been so pleased with the overall character education and behavior management. Positive rewards for everything from good behavior to good attendance. The teachers we have this year are tuned into my kids' needs and push them to excel in the areas they need. Only complaint is the kindergarten class is too big (24), but as a former first grade teacher I know enrollment is something hard to control. Specifically love the opportunity both kids had to participate in a science fair this year, the "family" days they have every month to mix different age groups and encourage cooperation, and also that they have recess BEFORE lunch. Wish our old school had done most schools kids are racing to take a few bites, then throw away only half-eaten lunches. Wish recess first, kids are actually hungry at lunchtime and are expected to all eat together. The principal and VP are very "visible" and involved, can always be seen helping in the lunchroom, visiting classrooms, or at the quarterly family nights at the school. Also love the secured entry building. Very happy with our Mesnier experience this year.

Dissatisfied. Disappointed. Discriminatory staff. If your child has a chronic illness, be warned the staff will punish the child and unnecessarily report to the state. Negative comments, sarcasm,and bullying from one First grade teacher has destroyed my child's self-esteem.

I was there 1999 to early 2001. I had an SSD teacher that disciplined me unnecessarily. Also she had a very strict restroom policy. You get three restroom passes a day! That was second grade! We were also given yellow slips that has guidelines you have to follow. They have a "yes" or a "no" printed next to each guideline. Every "no" is circled, you lose five minutes of recess, no exceptions! We have a timed math tests in the afternoon to improve computation. I've remember a student was using fingers to count. It was working for the student but not the teacher. She was given no credit for the test. Another teacher I had was teaching second grade. She wouldn't allow me to express my obsession which is disability-related. She would of been in hot water under IDEA. These teachers were both petrifying and better change!

So far, I am really pleased with this school. My daughter just completed kindergarten, and has been asking all summer when she can go back. She is already reading extremely well and doing math problems with ease. Mesnier is a 'cute' little school( the murals in the halls and the ice cream cone out front are darling!) with a close knit feel to it, and the parents are always kept really informed. I think this school is a perfect 'fit'.

This school has an absolutely fantastic teacher staff. I have not encountered any I do not like in the two years my child has attended. They are instrumental in encouraging children, building self-esteem and teaching values of citizenship. The teachers seem to be very good at spotting all types of needs of the children to pinpoint the ones having difficulties and the ones excelling and needing a challenge. The school provides access to extra activities throughout the year to help children of this age explore different opportunities. Opportunities in reading, math, science(fair), scouts, music, sports, etc. I would recommend this school to any who is looking for a sound and stable environment in which you can work at whatever pace works for you and your children.
