Welcome to Muskegon Catholic Elementary School! From preschool through sixth grade, MCCES is a place where each child is cherished and taught in a caring, faith-filled environment.
We are blessed with the opportunity to teach your children about God’s love for them. We gather every morning to hear Christ’s Word and to offer special prayer requests. Students pray the Living Rosary and have Adoration once a month and attend Mass on a weekly basis. In all things, the Gospel values of love, respect and compassion are shared with our students.
Our dedicated teaching staff focuses attention on each individual child to ensure that he/she masters the academic concepts that are taught each day. Staff meet weekly in professional learning communities to assess student learning through the use of continued informal and formal assessment. Students take the MAP (Measures of Academic Progress) testing program in the fall and spring because it allows us to assess individual comprehension in the core academic areas and set growth targets for each child. The students at MCCES consistently score above the national average in all subject areas. Throughout the year we utilize STAR Reading and Math programs and assessments, Study Island, and the Reading Fluency Benchmark Assessor (fall, winter, spring). Staff utilize all data to continuously improve their teaching strategies and to provide a high quality education for all students.
Our students are blessed to be able to participate daily in a fine arts class; Spanish, music, physical education, computers, and art. We invite you to spend some time on our school page, where you can learn about our preschool programs, Small Blessings Childcare, curriculum, etc. Most importantly, I encourage you to visit our school, where every student is considered a blessing.
