The teachers at the school care about each one of their students. They are always willing to work individually with a struggling student. Most of the teachers incorporate a hands-on teaching style, allowing students to be actively engaged in their learning rather than just listening to lectures. While they grade fairly, they do not grade harshly. However, the teachers don't always push the students to do their best.
There is not a lot of clubs and organizations available at Mount Desert Elementary School, but those that do exist are very well organized and funded. Clubs include MathCount, robotics, and a variety of sports. The most popular after school activity is probably soccer; 6th to 8th graders practice ball skills, scrimmage, and play games with teams from other schools.
