GreatSchools Rating
Parent Rating Average
The majority of the staff listed in previous reviews are no longer employed at MES. Our family is new to the school this year and we're considering other options. The younger classrooms seem to be a bit disorganized. At any particular time (or visit) you'll find children just up and wandering the room. Teacher's seem to only care how many words are in a sentence verses if words are spelled correctly and/or used correctly. During our one and only teacher conference (they only do one at the beginning of the year) neither of our children's teacher's offered any comments about our children that didn't involve "what a test told them". In other words, it didn't seem like they knew anything about our children other than a test score. One of the teacher's sent a lot of mixed signals about our son's progress. It was just a confusing experience. There seems to be a disconnect between the administration and the educators. You can feel it walking around the building. My wife and I have noticed that most of the teacher's seem generally unhappy. It's the oddest thing! For the first several weeks of school, the place looked like a prison. No art work on the walls, no "here's what we're working on" papers on the walls. It was just odd. If you can choose where your child attends, I'd consider looking elsewhere. It's certainly not terrible or horrible. But, it's mediocre at best.

What Locals Say about Mechanicsville

Trulia User

"Mechanicsville used to be a wonderful rural area. Unfortunately, the area is growing faster in housing than the schools and infrastructure will be able to support anytime in the near future. I am sorry to say, there are no rental properties affordable to moderate income families, and the rural atmosphere we used to enjoy is becoming impossible for lifelong families who have loved this area for generations. Before long, what we love will be history. "

"We don’t live in a structured neighborhood, but I feel completely safe, and I love living here. We have been in this home for five years. It is beautiful, peaceful, and removed enough to feel country, while still being close to what we need and want. "

"People do not pick up after their dogs as they should feel it’s more important to let dogs go on your grass then to let kids play in the grass"

"I was one of the first in this development. I know many of my neighbors and I’m on the homeowners association board. This neighborhood is quiet, people get along, and has lots of dog owners."

"Commute is good around the area. You are close to everything, there’s a lot of stores and places to eat. I have about a 25 -30 minute commute to work in the west end. Traffic can be difficult during rush hours."

"Amenities include a pool, two playgrounds, tennis courts and paths. There is considerable forested green space lending a rural character to several areas of this subdivision mostly those from magazine drive east. All utilities are underground, no above ground wires. This is a safe area with awesome schools."

"This is a great location...right down the Street from Pole Green Produce - fresh veggies & fruit always available. Minutes from shopping and restaurants - yet in a nice country setting. In a top notch school district - Pole Green elementary / Oka Knoll Middle / Hanover HS. Pole Green park just 2 mins. up the road with a wonderful kids playground and recreation fields. I also love the community - wonderful pool and tennis courts in Sherrington. You always see activity any time of day. Just an all around great neighborhood for your family. The lot this home sits on is a very good size and it only borders 2 neighbors...most back up to more 3 or more. You can tell the owners take pride in this home and it has been kept very well. There is a stair case that leads to a huge attic...a bonus for those who need plenty of storage. Another nice feature is the stainless stell gas oven/stove in the kitchen. Not all homes in Sherrignton have gas appliances. Owners have installed irrigation for the front lawn and a good size storage shed in the backyard. You really must see this house to appreciate."
