Welcome to the Midtown Community Elementary School website. We educate and support just under 500 Pre-K to Grade 5 students, many from very diverse backgrounds. Our staff is highly qualified in providing our students with the highest quality education, one that supports the cultural diversity of our community. Working closely with parents and community resources, our goal and responsibility is to provide every student with the skills and opportunities to develop their full academic and social potential. We want every student to develop an enthusiasm for learning, and positive character traits for themselves that include being respectful and responsible individuals as they work within our community to improve the learning environment for us all. MCES’s vision is to provide a safe environment designed to foster self-esteem, character and academic rigor in education where every child can achieve their full potential. We encourage our parents to become an essential contributing partner in the activities and programs that MCES hopes to provide for our students throughout the year. This starts with your participation in events such as: Back to School Night, PTO events, Parent Conferences, Music Concerts and Book Fairs.
