I have a daughter in 1st grade at MES. Good school, mixed reviews on the teachers, some are outstanding.. but competitive parents help to drive their children to exceed expectations.

I have two children--one in 4th and one in Kindergarten-- at Morningside and we have been very pleased. Both of my kids love the school and I am amazed at the level of the curriculum. They are learning at an incredible pace.

My child is in his 2nd year at MES. We have been extremely disappointed in the school in both academics and discipline. Tremendous lack of support from Principal and ass't principal. Great neighborhood feel and terrific parental support. Unfortunately, it runs under the Atlanta Public School system.
