    "I have been a parent of MBES for the past three years. My oldest has since moved on to middle school. My youngest is going there this fall for kindergarten. Overall the school is good. Much better than the ES we came from in Amelia County. The teachers thusfar have been great. A touch over zealous when it comes to absences for family vacations during the school year or other parent sanctioned appts. But otherwise, all is well within the class room. Now on to the bad stuff (fair and balanced right?)...the front office is horrible. Horrible on the phone, horrible in person. They either seem completely untrained, highly opinionated when approached with a problem or issue, etc. It is so bad, that we avoid the front office as much as possible. When registering my 2nd child in preparation for kindergarten, you would have thought we were bothering them when seeking information or process. Common sense and customer service are rare as I have had this dialogue with other parents that my children are friends with, and my experience is the common experience. Otherwise we are happy with the rest of the school and all it has to offer."

    "We made a middle of the year move to MBES (2nd and 5th grade) from WA state. I couldn't be happier with this school. The staff at MBES were so welcoming and made our move so much easier. Both of my children had a great school year!"

    "We have three children currently in MBES. I can not say enough how much we love this school. The teachers are both kind and understanding and very helpful to children who do need that extra help. If I had one complaint it would be the constant flyers coming home from the PTO for fund raisers etc. We live in a very nice area and while many families I am sure have the extra money for these things, there are many families who live pay check to paycheck and it is not fair to those children who can not afford these things. Also there has been more the one occasion where one or more of my children have said they were rushed out of the lunch room and were unable to finish their lunch."

    "I currently have 2 kids at Margaret Brent. We have had great teaches and no so great teachers. This can happen in any school but there is a need for consistentsy. Also there is a real lapse in the communication, both with the office staff and teachers. There is a need for more professionalism. We are also not happy with how the lunch schedule and recess times. Lunch can at times be as late as 1:oopm and recess is not also given. The facility is nice and new but new does not mean better. We had high hopes when we moved but now we have many regrets. Overall our experienced is just okay."

    "We used Great Schools to educate ourselves about this school & focused our home search based on the information here. While we have not been totally disappointed with our choice, there is still a lot to be desired. We have 2 children enrolled, 2nd & 4th grades. The 2nd grade class seems very disorganized & has a lot of distractions... not well controlled. the 4th grade class, while better in those areas, the teacher seems to think she knows it all and doesn't involve parents or have regular communication with them. The office staff... the nurse... the lunchroom staff... counselors...everyone we have contact with has been lacking in some regard...professionalism, attitude, knowledge, organization... we came from a school that was locked on...and this one is definitely not. We are not seeking perfection... just better than this. Still, this is probably one of the better schools in Stafford."
