This is a very small school and most of the teachers are good with the kids. If you like to be involved in your child's class, you can forget it unless you happen to be a room mom. How you get to be a room mom is a mystery to me, but it is always the same moms, no one else gets a chance. The education is average, you can find better schools in the area.

Both of my daughters have had terrific teachers every year and the principal is involved and caring. I also like the fact that they have wonderful art and music programs.

My daughter is in Kindergarten and absolutely loves her teacher and what she does in school. Her teacher makes learning fun for her and keeps the parents extremely informed on what is going on in the classroom and what they are learning about. She seems to go out of her way to help. We are very happy we chose MES over the private school we were originally planning on.

I could not ask for a better education for my child. When she needs help, she gets it. If there is ever a problem it is addressed. Both the principal and guidance counselor are available to help. The curriculum is outstanding. The after school activities are plentiful and help develop well rounded young people.

MES is an excellent school. My son loves his Kindergarten teacher and is doing really well there. He has mastered some spelling words, is learning to read and has learned all of his numbers. Ms. Appalucci is one of the best Kindergarten teachers I have ever met. She has a knack for making learning fun and the children relate to her very well.

Christian learning environment? What are they talking about? My child has attended for 2 years and there is nothing Christian about it. It is a public school! Last year was okay, but this year is a nightmare. My child's needs are not being addressed and I am being treated like a nuisance now that I am not going along with the prescribed program. His teacher is not appropriate for his needs and the district is not willing to even discuss moving him from the class. His feelings and my beliefs are the only considerations that don't matter all of a sudden. I am ready to move out of the township to change schools! I hope this gets posted. I once sang the praises of this school and I am now sadly dismayed. My son is suffering. The stress is making him ill. We feel lost and abandoned.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
