I am very disappointed in this school. I have 5 children 4 who have attended Milwaukie Elementary. I currently have 1 child in Milwaukie Elementary and 1 in El Puente. All my children agree they do not like Milwaukie Elementary. My two oldest have been to several different schools in different states where they academically and emotionally thrived. came back to Milwaukie Elementary and they academically, socially and emotionally had a hard time for the second time around. all there schools they did great except there. they do not have any enrichment. the staff including teachers have not done any training on dealing with emotional needs. they have no protocol for dealing with emotions and anger. They are slow on establishing IEP needs and do not honor the IEP correctly. There is alot of bullying and it goes on un addressed despite my efforts. The children are bored. non engaged. My son couldn't wait to start middle school. I pulled my daughter out befor this year started and I'm pulling my son out this winter break. I am moving to portland school district before my two year old starts school or home schooling.

My son has been attending since kindergarten. My other son will be starting in September of this year. I love the teachers and atmosphere at milwaukie elementary. The staff is extremely in touch with the community and the parent's. I enjoy all the oppertunities they provide for the students. As well as the education.

I adore ME. We started at a private school in Portland and I was concerned that my kids would be not be challenged at ME. To my surprise they were. I have volunteered in both classes and seen such an amazing interaction with the teachers and students. Both teachers are willing to go out of the box to better the individual child's needs. My youngest sister was a student at ME and has a 3.8 GPA now in high school. ME has gone above and beyond my expectations!

This school is horrible. I went to this school untill the 6th grade. The staff are horrible. I have to adimit the there are a few okay teachers, but over filled classes shadow there talent. The buliding is quickly breaking down. The curriculum is bad. There was alot of repeating of lessons. The food that i served is not good. It would often be discolored, and sometimes out of date. Over all the school needs to shape up before I would even think about telling someone to send their there.

this school has gone split classes across the board we have 3 classes with 1st & 2nd graders 3 classes with 3rd & 4th graders and 3 classes with 5th & 6th graders. All the subjects taught benefit the top grade of that class, my recommendation would be home school!

This school does not teach very many math areas for 4th graders. In writing it is very confusing for the kids and the teachers do not help instead the kids offer to help. I personally think that the teacher needs to help the student so the teacher can help the student with there accademic needs. This school has a high poverety level. And I think this effects a lot. I would personally not send my child there if there was a nother school to go to. I am not very happy with the teacher quality. This school needs help!

My child is now in first grade at Milwaukie Elementary. The staff and principal are great. Alot of planning goes into each and every event at this school. I am always welcomed when I volunteer. I appreciate all the great parents whom are involved in the very well rounded school.

In a world full of huge class sizes and budget cuts, Milwaukie Elementary still seems to have the community feeling in school. Reasonable class sizes, extremely friendly and educated staff (teachers, administration, assts, etc), active parent group, and students with manners. Speaking as a former student myself some 25 years ago, I am happy and proud to say that the school spirit still rides high at M.E.S. and in the entire community.

This school is outstanding. My oldest has been attending for 5 years and my youngest now for 3 years. The staff new my youngest by name before she even enrolled in kindergarten. The of this 'community' is on each individual child and their learning needs. It is fantastic that in a world of budget cuts this school still offers small class sizes, music, PE, counseling and one-on-one educational opportunities. The involvement of parents and staff in the school is awesome - the PTO, with their fundraisers and personal commitment, have paved the track, ensures every 6th grader attends outdoor school, and provides many 'extras' for students and staff. I wouldn't have my children attend any other school.

I love this school. The teachers are very friendly and really care about the children. It really blew me away this year when I was enrolling my youngest into kindergarten. The staff new my oldest son by name and were excited to have my youngest there as well. They really are focused on the children and the success of their learning and knowledge of all subjects. It is a wonderful friend environment for all.
