    Mt. Energy is a great school. The teachers are caring and dedicated. Ms. Garrison is a great leader.

    My son has just completed his kindergarten year and I am so pleased. His teacher Mrs. Branch did an excellent job teaching students at their varying levels. Even though my son entered with reading skills I never felt as though he was held back. Mrs. Garrison is an excellent principal and her leadership shows throughout the school. I was consistently told that Mt. Energy was the best school in Creedmoor but now I know why. It seems that we may be relocating to the MD/DC area and as I research schools in that area I realize how blessed we have been at Mt. Energy. I can recommend it without any hesitation

    My daughter has attended Mt Energy for the last three years and I also substitute there on occasion. I am very pleased with what has been taught in her classrooms. Mrs. Garrison is a fantastic principle. I would like to see more opportunity for parent involvement. I am very proud that my daughter is a mustang!

    I have a 10 year old nephew and a 7 year old niece who attend this school and have since kindergarten. They both enjoy going to school adore their teachers have grown substantially as young people from the variety of extra curricular activities provided and have been shown much love and support from their teaching staff each year.

    My daughter really enjoyed her first year! She was more than prepared to move on 2 1st grade & cant wait to go back!

    My son started kindergarten last year and I was very pleased with his teacher and assistant.. I am also pleased with the school overall. I am looking forward to the rest of my son's school years to come and hope that Mrs Garrison remains because the school overall reflects her.. She and her staff are doing a great job.

    I am the grandmother of an official 1st grader now. She is a very shy little girl and had always been at home with mom. She was very skeptical about going to kindergarten but she was blessed with a very good teacher and assistant teacher. The whole school is run very smoothly hats off to all the staff... We couldn't have been more pleased.

    Three of my children have attended this school. The principal my be 'militant' but my children love and respect her. Mt. Energy isn't a typical public school...this quality of education is usually found only in private school.

    My three children have been at Mt. Energy;2 since they were three 1 since kindergarten. I couldn't be happier with the educations they are receiving there. The teachers are the best I've ever seen. They know my children and care about their success.

    My son attended from kindergarten through 5th grade. The Principal Asst. Principal Staff teachers everyone are top notch and think of the children and only the children. Problems are handled quickly and efficiently. Children are challenged. A very good school.

    I think that Mt Energy overall is a good school but the Principal needs to realize that these are children. She is very militant. I feel that they give way too much homework in no case should a third grader have 2 hours of homework. The teachers are top notch though.

    If I had to choose a school for my children to go to it would be Mt. Energy. The teachers and staff are the best. They are always willing to help any child do their best. They have something for everyone to do sports music art. The teachers really care about their students. They are not there to just get a paycheck they are there to help the kids. I have two kids at this school grades pre-k and 3rd and I WOULD NOT want them any where else. Thank you to the teachers and staff for doing such a good job.

    The Principal and Vice Principal of Mt. Energy are wonderful. They aren't 'just doing their job' they truly care about their students on a personal level. The teachers are exceptional as well. My children have made much progress in this school. We couldn't ask for a better school!
