My child has went to this school for three years. The staff are very young and inexperienced. They do not know how to communicate with the children. There is very little communication with parents. If you bring up a concern, they act like you have no idea what you are talking about. The principal acts like she runs your household and family. However, I teach my child more at home than the school is teaching. The teacher's have too many children to know what each child needs help at or excels at. Thankfully, this will be our last year at this school.

I have three daughters who at attended SME. This will be the 7th year there for my oldest who loves reading, science, & geography. This year she is excelling in math for the first time. I am so thankful for great teachers who have helped her strengthen her weaknesses as well as encourage her strong subjects as well. My second grader is also doing well & enjoying all subjects. And my Kindergartener has learned to read in the first 9 weeks of this school year. I look forward to the next 8 years at SME as my children grow up. The school is very open to improvement and getting the students what they need to succeed.

This is truly a horrible school. The teachers try but the bullying is a real issue at this school. The administration is lacking on keeping parents informed, often excluding parents from knowing of their own child's progress. School functions are hit or miss. School focuses too much on one demo graphical type of student.
