Principal is vindictive towards whatever teacher or staff member she selects. Then, she will ride them endlessly while ignoring real problems. Has a personal agenda and spends her days behind closed doors.

Let's be honest about education and our involvement as parents. Let's get an understanding the differance in community and test score rating. Mabelvale was rates 5 stars for community rating. Mabelvale was rated 2 out of 10 for test scores. Parents I am shocked. I have 2 granddaughters that attend Mabelvale elementary and middle school. I am afraid they will not receive the education they need to suceed in life. Parents please research your childs school before you enroll your child in it Our kids are falling behind and who seems to care about it.. A concerned Grandmother from Southeast Arkansas.

This year will be my child's second year at mmms and the staff has really made the transition from elementary school to middle school a breeze. Every one there really showed me that they really care about my child's education.
