    A good school district but kids should take a foreign language at the grade school level. Several school districts do this and the kids pick up language great at this age.

    MES is a wonderful school. My son has attended Preschool through 2nd grade so far. The special ed department has been outstanding in helping us with our son's special learning abilities. Highly recommended!
