The school itself is safe and clean and surrounded by good families so it looks great on the outside. It is sad to say that this school among so many others is here to herd children through and take your money doing so. I was personally let down by the Principal, Vice-Principle, counselor and teacher. When I approached them with some results I found out about my student I was almost shunned. They made sure they let me know they knew more than me. Even guarded with results from a nationally recognized test they let me know their kids were "smart" to and would not help accommodate a bored child. There are a handful of great teachers at this school unfortunately the ones running it and their click of teachers make it a hit or miss school. Your kid will learn here but only what the state test requires nothing more. They are concerned about looking good on paper not helping students on their level individually.
My child was one was just one in a crowd it's too bad they did not see what he had to offer. Now in a Gifted school in Houston, at Madeley he was labeled "immature". Even after discussing with teacher and counselor there was no effort to try to work with my child. They truly had no idea he was gifted because he was labeled and not a favorite. Don't bother attending this school if you don't play the favoritism game.
This is one awesome well-rounded school. Excellent Teachers, Strong Leadership, Great lesson plans, and very involved families of the students along with very supportive staff! The minute you step into MRE...you feel at home! Always greeted with warm smiles & caring attitudes ;-)
