    The Missouri School Board Association has just selected MRH Early Childhood Center as one of the best preschool programs in the state. Two other schools in the state are up for the award which will be presented in October.

    Not impressed. We will go private school next year.

    My son went to preschool kindergarten and now first grade at the ECC. Thus far we have been incredibly pleased with his progress and development of an overall love for learning. It is the only public school in St. Louis that subscribes to the Reggio Emilia philosophy. Teachers truly care about the kids...and the principal makes sure all the kids have coats on when they go out....AND writes personal notes on their report cards. Our son's teacher even visited our home twice for conferences which is amazing! We expect more of the same next year at the elementary level.... -Kristin Tanner

    In the process of investigating schools for my kids to attend once they reach Pre-K I have been most impressed with MRH Early Childhood Education programs. I believe that we owe it to our kids and ourselves to truely spend some time in the classroom with the teachers and kids speaking to principals and administrators to form an opinion about our public schools instead of relying on hearsay and moving to another supposedly 'better' school district. I am convinced that everyone visiting a MRH school before making a decision will be positively surprised by the cutting edge innovations in education that are taking place here.
