    Perfect teachers perfect administration perfect education plan perfect approach! I want my kids to go there forever! Not a better school anywhere. You should have to pay for this level of education and care. Private school education at the direction of the public level. I wouldn't put my kids in UMS over this school!

    My son attended Semmes Elem. last year while a Pre K student for speech. Everyone at the school was polite. I was in the office for at least an hour in the week and always observed the office staff being polite...with the children teachers and parents. The teachers in the special education department that I was lucky enough to meet were wonderful.
