    We started MCE at the beginning of the second semester and all I can say is that I have been extremely disappointed in this entire process. I feel as if a school should be providing all pertinent information regarding the school transportation etc and it was not. Starting a new school year has been just as frustrating. Transportation situations will not be set until after the beginning of the year with bussing being a free for all for the first week or so. Compounding this with the fact that my 6 year old child did not get off at his stop last year after school and nobody noticed except our after school babysitter. The websites are extremely difficult to navigate and in order to obtain information I have had to speak with other parents. I don't feel I am asking too much and the disorganization and chaos that I have felt during this year has been frustrating and has helped me decide to enroll my child at an out of district school.

    So far the school is good we just moved here from out of state and the reviews of the school were good that's why choose it. The only problem I have is the teachers forget that parents are adults and talk to you as if you are 9. I think the intention is good they just need to remember that parents want to be talked like adults not children. Otherwise a pretty good school so far.

    An amazing principal Mr. Davis is extremely active with the students and keeps them interested in education.

    I have had 2 children and 2 grandchildern attend this school. Mr Davis is exceptional. The teachers know it also thr staff does not come and go... The first year for one teacher had my daughter in her class she later had her son (now 21) my grandaughter (9) now attends the school and that teacher is still there! J.M. parent/grandparent

    Mt. Comfort Elementary School is a great school. All four of my children have attended there. The teachers are wonderful as is Mr. Davis the principal. My husband and I have been nothing but impressed with this school for the 11 years we have been involved with it.

    I believe that both of my children have received a high quality education at Mt. Comfort Elementary. The leadership of Phil Davis principal is exceptional. He makes sure that no child is left behind. The staff of this school has left us completely satisified.
