    Great experience with the school. Both my children recently graduated form this school and our experience was top notch. Both of my kids need extra attention with learning differences(one had dyslexia and the other ADHD) The school provide resources to help both of children. Both loved the sports and leadership opportunities, neither were popular kids but felt included and successful.
    Each attended top colleges after graduation and felt well prepared for college I'm pretty sure they would not have gotten into Washington University without having attended MICDS. At the end of the day its about happiness and college admission results that really matter.

    Such a wonderful school. I was more than prepared for college, especially when it came to writing. The English department is hands-down the greatest strength of this school, though I found the other departments to be excellent as well. The school is also very accommodative to individual students' needs, happily approving independent studies and providing tutors to those who need them. The athletics are undoubtably the best in the sate as well, and there are just so many different clubs, travel opportunities provided by the school, amazing guest lecturers, and just all around fantastic enrichment experiences. I made very close friends that I speak to multiple times a day, years out from college, and I'm just very grateful to have gotten to be a part of this community.
    MICDS is an overall amazing school. MICDS encourages student involvement in their wacky traditions like the annual Turkey Train and the always fun Activities Festival. The school spirit is amazing, especially during homecoming week and the big game against Burroughs. I guess MICDS could work on grade intergation and making sure that there is bonding between the grades. The faculty and Student Council have made some attempts at doing this and it seems to be going well! Overall, MICDS is a good school.
