I think Mission is a good school overall. So far, my child's teachers have been really great. The office staff is very helpful and friendly. There's a lot that should be done with updating the school , such as play grounds & field's condition. It's very outdated , and in definite need of help. The cafeteria ladies are screamers! I understand that kids, a lot of kids can make any day hectic but to constantly yell and be grumpy towards kids is a definite concern! It's a fairly small school so you get to recognize familiar faces quickly . The principal does her best to keep the kids safe , there are parking and pickup rules but never in forced , that's a huge problem and a Emergancy concern , there are no ways out in the event of an emergency due to cars blocking ALL lanes . I think mission is good, but there is definitely better

Mission is an awesome elementary school, I've had 3 of my 4 children already pass through and my 4th child is currently a 3rd grader. I still bring my middle and high schoolers back to see their old teachers, that's what kind of impression they made on them, that they are still happy to see their elementary school teachers!

My child has attended mission since kindergarten she is heading to 3rd grade I want her stable at 1 school through her elementary yrs I agree with other parents the bullying not much being done about it I ask to have phone calls returned Its like nothing ever happens I believe my child when she tells me about being bullied I know its a problem with many other children also it needs to be addressed children should be able to go to school get education feel safe have fun with friends without worrying about who's going to bully them i believe my child when we're talking she's crying letting me know what's going on at school she doesn't like to fight call other children names something has to change she's constantly telling me she really wishes that the children wouldn't fight be mean to each other just because someone is treating her like that doesn't mean she has to treat them mean either Or why can't everyone be nice my little daughter says she is the way she is because she want to set a example hopefully a lot of the children will see by her being kind and nice you can get along just as well and be friends She has a very sweet kind heart and is hurting behind the bullying

We love this school and the staff too. They are making the school safer for our kids this year by changing how the kids are picked up and dropped off, and many other great changes too.

I had a son and daughter who got out of Mission not long ago i currently have a daughter attending this school. I love this school but my only problem with this school is the bullying, and how some staff and teachers treat the kids. I give this school a rating of a 3.

My kids have been at Mission on and off for the past 3 yrs(moved away, then had to move back) I really HATE what I see going on at this school...way to much yelling from teachers at the kids and parents....Children hurting others and NOTHING really being done, but spoken too.....The Principal isn't very good at her job, things are brought to her attention, and there is ALWAYS an excuse. Some teachers are great, but MOST shouldn't be teaching. =(

I'm very new to this school. I was extremely apprehensive signing my kids to this school. My first visit I noticed that the children were constantly getting yelled at. And soon, I found myself getting yelled at.. LoL. Some are rude. It isnt easy. However, the principle is amazing.

This school will be the first for me - my kids will start going this year and I know efforts to improve all round depends on the Principal, teachers, and involvement of parents. As they say "A bad carpenter blames his tools". I am not going to be judgmental and will think positive my kids will get the best experience in Mission Elementary. Takes a village to raise a child - per ex President Clinton and I concur.

I really like the school especially the principle. She is very quick to responding to problems and complaints. I have been having an issue with my child's teacher, she is very difficult to talk to. However, the principle has help fix the problem.

I think Mission has some great teachers, although I think the supervision of children and leadership is not all that great.

The teachers care about each student's learning. They are very proactive and work to prevent future learning problems rather than just looking at their year with the child. Academics are stressed, but music, computers and physical education are also a part of the curriculumn. The staff is ahead of the district on implementing the nationally reknowed 'Character Counts' program. Your child will have a chance to achiever his/her very best at Mission Elementary School.

Its been really good so far. The teachers are very helpful and the only thing that I think helps your child overall is your involvement as well as the schools.

This is a good school where teachers pay attention to every single student. I have two boys going to Mission and they love it. Once we had a problem with a child hurting my son and as soon as I called they took care of it. The principle was notified and the other boys parents. The boy appologized to my son on the same day and the teacher made sure that my son knows that he did the right thing of telling me about it. It make me feel good that they take things like that very serious.
