    This school is great! The principal is the most involved enthusiastic inspiring and excellent principal I have ever seen. The staff from the janitors to security guards office and all faculty I have the opportunity to interact with really really care for the well being of each and every child. It makes me understand one more time that reform in the education system is sorely needed since these most dedicated well prepared and selfless individuals give their all every day forming the minds and souls of the future society and are so underpaid for their tremendous efforts and dedication. Five starts feels so little to give compared with what everybody in this excellent school provide to each and every child that attends it.

    My school is excellent. Great teachers great staff great curriculum! The school organizes many educational and family school activities after school. They also keep the kids interested in the school and their heritage. Great overall.

    This is our first year as MSES parents and I must say I am loving it and so are our daughters. Faculty and staff are wonderful and they are really there for the children. The principal Ms. Brenda Swain is never too busy to talk to parents but her priority are her students. She is there to help with student pick up/drop off picking up trash directing traffic etc. The parents are great. Everyone is so nice and I see the camaraderie. This school deserves all of its accolades and then some!!

    This is a fantastic school with a very engaged staff. I moved from private to public this past year with some trepidation yet those fears have been unrealized. I am delighted we made the move and my child is thriving in all areas. A true community school.

    My daughter is graduating this year (gifted program). In five years there only great and amazing things happened. Teachers are extremely well prepared and proffesional Principal is amazing and my Dear Cristina at front desk is so sweet and caring! We will miss you so much Cristina! I remember the first day of school in Kindergarten we were afraid of how our daughter will feel and develop only 5 days took us to see how much she was learning at this amazing school. All i could say is positive and im writting this so if you have a doubt just give it a try! Not only academics but the love and caring of staffmis worth they try! coach Marco (P.E) is by far the best coach ive known! Thank you Mimi Shores Elementary for the bright education and knowladge my daughter accomplished in this 5 years. Scarduelli.

    The school is under great leadership with the principal and assistant principal. However the staff at the front desk is very rude and has no business dealing with the public as they are the "face" of the school who the parents most often interact with. There is a wonderfully pleasant and helpful Spanish lady at the front desk but the others are gruff and rude. As a new parent to the school I do not feel comfortable going to the office. When the time comes and I do have to go I will only go to that nice Spanish lady.

    This school is really good the personnel is great and respectful and there are a lot of involved parents on the school. The after school activities are good. I am happy with them and with the activities they have my five year old is learning sign language. o)

    I was apprehensive to place my son here at first b/c he was previously in a small sweet little community church school. I was afraid that MSE was too big. However I did place him there for Kindergarten and my son and I could not be happier. His teacher is amazing (with high standards) and the parents are super-involved. WE plan on staying.

    My son has been there for one year. Overall I find it to be ok not great. His teacher; however was fantastic. She made all the difference for us the first year. Unfortunately I found her to be the only shining star. The school is badly in need of renovation. The current administration is autocratic and needs a big shake up starting at the top. Lots of changes need to be made. Aftercare is dismal. Instructors need training. There are no scheduled activities like soccer or music. The media center is closed immediately after school. It should open for a couple more hours so students and their parents (especially the ones who do not have computers at home) can do extra curricular reading etc. The home work is boring. My son never received a project for the entire year! It is not without hope. We need concerned parents!
