Great school, the staff and faculty are great. They are always exploring new ways to bring in new opportunities. They have recently started a new art class for all students.

The school is a well kept secret in the city of Ozark, the teachers always go out of there way to assist my kids, both of my boys currently attend Mixon and love it. The staff is exceptional and always put the students future at the forefront. The one area of concern is the lack of parent involvement. There are a handful of great hard working parent volunteers who go above and beyond but for a school that has over 500 students the parent participation is lacking. Mixon is a great place and should be a showcase of Ozark City.

Mixon is not a bad school. However, the attitude of some (not all) of the personnel in the administration office is not welcoming. The two teachers my son has have been great!! (Exceptional) Even with disciplinary actions. Most people wouldn't annotate that, but I'm a fair person and I give a balanced assessment.

Mixon has a bullying problem and no interest in fixing it...It's also all about raising money-- there have been 4 fund raisers, 3 picture sessions, countless t-shirts to buy... And discipline follows this rule: It doesn't matter how well or poorly you behave all day long-- it's the last 15 minutes that determine your rating for the day. There is almost -no- socializing allowed-- even at lunch, they run 'the red light' for a good portion of it-- meaning children aren't allowed to talk. They're not allowed to touch-- games like tag are asking for disciplinary action. It's probably going to sound silly, but there are 2 other school here that manage to put -something- in the local paper every week-- and Mixon never puts ANYTHING it's doing in there, which comes off to me as a lack of school pride, or an attempt to keep the media out...

New Principal. She is the best I've ever seen. The teachers are working as a team, curriculum is being monitored and student achievement is improving. Giver her two years. This will be the best school in Alabama.

I love this school! The administration and teachers make it evident that they love children and their jobs! I did my lab experience here and loved every minute of it! I highly recommend this school to all parents. The academic programs and involvement in the community are outstanding. Overall, Mixon is a great place to learn and grow for the students and teachers!
