    "A few years ago the MCMCS was a great school. It lives inside the Museum, it is small and the energy was very inviting and family oriented. Unfortunately, during the past few years this has changed. At first the changes didn't affect the children but this past year was a disaster, and this was primarily due to extremely poor leadership. The principal was non-existent during most of the year. The office staff was a disaster, they did not know how to communicate with the parents. Every school has monthly parent information meetings, this year there were 3 meeting and they were run by a secretary of the school who is also a parent who was hired by the principal, but no one can understand what her role at the school is...and the meetings lacked any useful info...why was the principal never present at these meetings? The school year began bad, the text books arrived late, then as the year went by parents were pushed away, parents who wanted to volunteer were turned away (volunteering is required) French class disappeared, Classes very OVERCROWDED, unhappy teachers, It just seems they care more about $$ and less about the kids ...It is so sad. I hope things change for the better."

    "Parents and teachers make this school the good school it is. Lack of leadership is evident. Principal rarely seen. Teachers overwhelmed by crowded classes. Recess, time in the museum get cancelled often. Also Spanish which is now the only alternative language being taught. Nobody knows why French was canceled. We started the year being told that the school was working towards IB certification. . Still don't know what happened with that, where we are at. Only 3 parent meetings this year. Poorly run and with useless information. A PTA would certainly make all the difference."

    "This school could be amazing but due to the poor leadership, it fails to deliver the academics and organization it needs to thrive. Text books did not arrive until the 3rd or 4th week of the 2013-2014 school year and the principal chose not to order all of the needed books so the work came from overhead projectors and papers copied from books. I have never seen social studies or science homework nor have I seen 1 graded paper in these subjects. I know he takes these classes because I see the grades. The saving graces are all of the teachers my child has had are amazing. They care about the students, the communication has been fantastic and they are good teachers if they were just provided with the resources and leadway to teach. Their frustration with the school leadership is evident by several of the really great teachers leaving in frustration. The parents and students are wonderful. It's like a family because the school is small and the parent involvment is high. Most of us know each other, on some level. There is refreshing diversity of culture with a great global diversity. I find the education is on par with like schools but it could be much better."

    "Overcrowded, therefore not enough one on one attention. I think they pack them in for the money."

    "There is a sense of family that is undeniable. You feel your children are in a safe and happy environment. Teachers and staff care for each student individually. They help him/her succeed academically as well as emotionally. The students well being is their number one priority. If you want to pick up a happy child at dismissal send him/her to this school. Good luck :))"
