I love the teachers that strive everyday to give my son the best learning abilities they can. The activities that the school has for the students are terrific. However, the front office staff is lacking in one VERY important area. I've signed my son out personally on two different occasions and I sent my boyfriend in to sign him out (which btw he had never been in front office before) and myself nor my boyfriend was asked for our name or our identification... When I tried to speak with the principal on this subject (three different occasions) I've yet to have the opportunity to do so. So, I encourage any parent who has a student attending MIS to please push this issue to be taken seriously before(God forbid) something bad happens to my child or one of your own. Thank you

3rd grade teacher last year was a bully. She would call out kids on their incorrect answers on assignments in front of the whole class (amongst many other things). If you get her, report her. She is still working there. However, most teachers are caring, forgiving, nice, and love the kids.

I have had nothing but great results from the staff and principal at MIS.My oldest daughter is in Middle School now and she misses this school so much that she goes back to spend the day when possible.My 3rd grader absolutely loves it here and I am very happy with the staff and how this school runs.

This staff does care about each child. Often, it is the stress of the state's 'high scores or your fired' mandate that restricts some talented teachers from doing what they know best - teach. I would send my child there, without question. The principal is always willing to listen to parents. Have you given that a try yet? I hope your child's year gets better!


Posted March 6, 2010

The staff at this school seem to have forgotten that kids matter. Its not just a paycheck people, you need to care about these kids, and care what input these kids parents have. My child is a completely different, unrecognizable little girl now that she goes to MIS.
