This is a great school, we were apprehensive when we moved to such a rural area and even tried the private schools first. Our children have thrived here and I am amazed at the range of extra activities they offer. Students can participate in piano lab, chorus, Odyssey of the Mind and Lego Robotics, the Great Computer Challenge, Drama Club and Kiwanis Kids, all in Elementary school! The teachers are dedicated and the students are polite and well-behaved. We are fortunate to have such a wonderful school in our community.

School is great, one particular member of the office staff is horrible. Clearly us parents are an interruption to her day. I have had 3 kids go through MES and I am so glad that this is our last year dealing with her. Not to mention the new "no transportation changes after 12 noon." Well stuff happens and if I call to say there is an emergency and I need to make a change than so be it. I am still the parent.

The office staff is awful! As it has been stated a few times here. I don't know why these ladies are still allowed to work there. This year( my daughter's last year thankfully) they have "lost" my daughter 4 times and almost a fifth. It does not matter if you send in a note or call before noon ( their new policy) they do NOT communicate with the teachers. I have had to chase down the bus when the school has been told not to put her in it. I have been very happy with MOST of my daughter's teachers and she has excelled academically.

This school, and its sister middle school, have pulled themselves up academically in recent years. Unfortunately, however, the SOL scores for the Middlesex high school remain dismally low. Despite the improvement for the elementary school, I took my daughter out because she was not sufficiently challenged (and was bored). I recently found out the school doesn't even conduct spelling bees, which I cannot understand - what message does that give to kids about the importance of mastering the English language? I know that MIddlesex is a relatively poor county, but how much can it cost to open up the cafeteria one night for an hour or two? One last note: the county really should cough up a little money to train the ladies in the front office how to act (even if they don't feel like it) like normal, friendly human beings.

I am very impressed by this school. My child has been diagnosed with ADHD. The teachers and staff have been very willing to work with us as we find the best medication and treatment. The school works closely with parents to help all children with their needs. The principal keeps all parents informed about school events and needs with phone / text messages. My child's teachers have been fantastic, caring professionals. I couldn't be happier with our school.

I am not that impressed with the office attendees or the principal, they seem stressed out when I am in the office. They have never said,"hi!" when I walk in. During Girl Scout Cookie season I was rudely approached and told "now is not a good time". When offering free clothes to students at the school, I inquired as to how does one register their child? They did a one up and down on me and assumed my needs were of no importance and said to me, we sent home applications in the childrens folders of the needy students. You would know if you got an application"

To not be allowed to walk your grandchild to her class, what has school become prisons without bars or hiding something...we are asked to get involved they say, and yet we can't even walk a child down the hallway to their class....we are talking a (5 year old)...very distrubing...

In 2010, Middlesex Elementary School is led by a Principal and Assistant Principal who appear to be a team. They held a creative event last night at our local FOOD LION that was absolutely superb. It involved and engaged entire families to support math reasoning and practical application in a familiar setting. It was well organized and allowed parents to meet and greet one another at the end over refreshments set up in the store. What an awesome project to promote academic success at ALL GRADE LEVELS in the school and in the community. WELL DONE MES!

Let me just say that my experience with Middlesex Elementary has been nothing but positive!!! Having one child that is reading above his grade level and another child that is having some difficulty is certain areas, the school has worked to meet both of their needs. The ladies in the office know just about every parent by name and make it a point to learn who each child belongs to. Not only is Mrs. Banks, the principal, doing an amazing job making sure that the students are being taught, she also takes time with parents and provides a safe and loving environment for the students to learn. The teachers are nothing short of amazing!! The best decision I ever made for my children was to have them in the Middlesex School system!!
