I am a parent and I volunteer at this school I am proud to say that my child has the opportunity to learn in Mariana's environment. The standard at this school is, children first! The staff and volunteers/ booster club really do care!!!!
I have 1 child at this school. Although she is only in kindergarten you can see certain things in a school. Mr. Mc Mahon is a great teacher. I am very happy that she is in his class this year. I couldn't ask for a better teacher for my child. The school can only do so much and it is up to the parents to make sure our children are getting what they need. If more parents were involved I am sure they wouldn't be complaining so much. Stop complaining and start doing something about it. Join the booster club and make a difference.
I have 2 children at Mariana. They are 4th and 5th grade now, having spent thier entire school lives at Mariana. I am involved, as are many of my fellow parents. The teachers are ALL great. The front office is excellent. The exception has been in the role of Principal. Do not care for the current one at all. We have had 3 in 4 years. I vote for Mr. Cleary for Principal...He can turn this school into a 10 !!!
My daughter is in the 4th grade every teacher she has had was wonderful however, this school goes through principle left and right the newest Ms. Sims will not deal with you if you disagree with her on something, too many parents complain about non important issues such as where another parent can and can not pick up their child instead of worring about academic achievment or bullies, finally Mariana's test scores are way below the state and district requirements. The teachers so far up to the 4th grade are great considering what they have to deal with such as not enough funding for the school. I would recommend another school if academics is important to you and you want a principle who will listen to all parents.
