Marshall Elementary (MCEP) is the school both my boys go to and is the best school that I have ever been a part of!

This school is amazing. I had my reservations before coming in because of the commitment that I was required to make as a parent, but it was the best thing for my child, and don't regret it for a second. The teachers are great, and having the support of other parents in the classroom makes things so much better for the kids.

The MCEP is a wonderful community that enriches our entire familiy's life. Every class has parent volunteers, so it takes the adult to student ratio down so I feel like there's more eyes watching out for kids all times. The time commitment is quite manageable if one of the parents in your household has a flexible work schedule. Totally worth it. Enrichment through field trips is amazing.

I love this school. I am a teacher, staying home to raise my children. I like being in the classroom and I especially like all of the individual and group attention my child gets here. Monthly field trips, parents in the classroom, wonderful teachers.

Having parents involved with the child's learning is an outstanding tool. It sets the bar high from the beginning. These days where parents don't participate in their kids lives, is where the issues with our kids start. I am glad my son is able to be part of a higher learning environment that will impact him in a positive way fro the rest of his life.

We love this program! I would suggest that any parent who has an invested interest in the success of their child and is able to spend the time volunteering 2.5 hours a week per child in the classroom as well as 2 field trips and 2 committees a year, that you do this program. It is superior to the traditional public school education and the kids are more behaved and feel more secure. The teachers are not overwhelmed and can enjoy the students more. It is a great alternative to homeschooling.

I witnessed a change in bullying overnight when my son started co-op 2 years ago. Now he's in middle school, but his 2 younger brothers are just starting it (this year and next year) and I love the preantal involvement and the student to teacher/parent ratio means the teacher can actually TEACH! The parents are always learning something new too! There's committees that parent actually run and monthly field trips. Plus, the 4th and 5th graders don't have to fundraise money for outdoor school; it is already covered through donations (as well as all the field trips). It is worth the 2.5 hours a week we willingly give. I LOVE being in my son's classroom. Those kids are awesome and it really makes me day.

Where else can you know the students your kids hang out with, the teachers who share their insights, and faculty who are above reproach? This is an excellent oppty to participate in a program that is far superior to any traditional/private school setting and very affordable. You always know how your child is doing, what your child is studying, and you are working cooperatively with the teachers as a whole. Monthly field trips, special presenters as time allows, etc. You won't be disappointed and it's a welcome change to traditional schooling. If you are an involved parent wanting looking for like-minded families, this is the place to be!!

I have had children in this program for 9 years and the spectacular relationships built between families, Students and staff have been life altering. Although there is no middle school program yet, this program has helped the children learn to ask for help, not only from the teachers and staff, but also the other volunteers working at the school. There are generally 4 adults/day helping the teachers move further along in the process of educating the students. The ability for my children to have other adults in the community to trust and watch over them is invaluable. Scores are higher in this program. Volunteering does make a big difference!

We are a military family and it was the best program to get involved in. YOu meet parents right away and you get to know your child's freinds and paretns. THe children get to go on 1-2 field trips a month that pertain to what they are learning. The reading program, Sucess For All, is an wonderful way to get your child to read. YOu have to put in time in the class and go on 2 field trips through out the year. At the end of the school year they get to go to outdoor school which is so much fun! I would highly reccommed this program to anyone interested. Take a tour to see if it's for you.

This is a great program if you have time and want to be involved in your childs education. The program works well for any level of child from the struggling to gifted because with the extra parent help the teachers can have each child working at thier level. Example a fourth grader that reads at over 7th grade level will be in a group of children reading at that level for reading(SFA). The same child may struggle in math and will work at the proper level for math. the school has many resources others in the district do not(due to the parent donations and fundraising).My daughter did her first Power Piont Presentaion in second grade. She is in the fourth grade now and I have lost track of how many she has done now... Spend a little time and check it out! It's great!

I have a 2nd grader and a kindergartener that attended this school. My children seemed to feel more comfortable making friends, bonding with the teacher etc., because of the parental involvement. Educationally my children felt successful and they did well. However, the office staff did not seem very friendly and the security of the school was low, occassionally I would see a stray dog roaming and the staff didn't seem to enforce checking in at the office before entering classrooms. Driving your child to school daily was a disadvantage along with the location of the school.

Quil Ceda has a wonderful reading program! The parent involvement makes such a huge difference in the classroom!
