Posted September 1, 2003

Both of my children have attended MES, with one in her final year there. The girls had previously been in two private schools in the area, but quality of education provided at MES far exceeds both. Despite an enrollment of over 800 students each year, the staff members know all of the kids by name. I have personally observed the principal, who roams the halls and talks to students constantly, congratulate children on good grades on weekly tests or reading scores. My husband & I are convinced that the quality of learning at Munford Elementary School is directly responsible for the academic excellence both kids have achieved.
