Our child has attended Messmer for 6 years, and to read some of the comments regarding Messmer I find disturbing. Messmer is overall in our eyes an excellent school that thrives on academics,faith,leadership,self-worth and zero tolerance for disruptive behavior. Our daughter is a high achiever in the overall curriculum. So yes I encourage anyone reading this blog..see for yourself, and ask other parents that are involved in their kids school. It's unfornate that some parents had such a bad experience.
I am a parent of a student here. I feel that the wool was pulled over my eyes on the first visit to the school. There is a huge difference in what the staff told me they will be doing to what was done. The teachers at least the ones my daughter has had are great. The school however seems more intrested in if i'm paying them then teaching her.
This is my child's third year at Messmer Preparatory. For the most part I have been pleased with the core academic curriculum. I do feel that diversity in cultural awareness and adapting to various student learning style differences is lacking. I am pleased that Messmer parents appear involved and accountable to their child's education. This makes a less chaotic student body and provides my child with a sense of order and security. If you prefer a school with strict, traditional, discipline guidelines and preventions, then check out Messmer Preparatory. However any school requires we as parents to stay closely involved in all aspects of the curriculum and to hold the teachers' and administrators' accountable.
I attended Messmer as a child and I was not happy with it. My son went there and when we moved to california he was held back a grade. Don't attend this school if you want your child to be successful!
