wonderful positive school principal and teachers. my child went from special ed at another school with possibly needing a higher level of care to a normal classroom got caught up in academics and no behavioral problem, amazing!
Outstanding School - like a private school w/o the tuition! Our daughter just graduated from 5th grade today, she has been a part of this school since Kinder, less Military moves, she's been to a blue-ribbon school in Orange County, and a public school in Washington state (Seattle). We live in Allied Gardens, but actually choiced into Benchley Weinburger in Kinder, but changed over. Let me say that Marvin beats all the other schools hands-down bigtime! No other school even came close. The Principal and faculty are absolutely superb! Great, safe environment for kids. They go out of their way to make you feel comfortable, and listen to any needs or concerns you have in your child's academic success. This school also has an excellent PTA/parent support group, and the after-school program (SAY) is top rate; A+++!!! There's absolutely nothing bad to write about this school!
Marvin Elem. has turned out to be a great school. I am from a small midwest town with only one school and being confronted with the decision of finding the best school for my son was difficult and stressful to say the least. We are there on an interdistrict transfer and all of my expectations have been exceeded. His Kindergarten teacher Mrs. Hannah is excellent and is caring with her students but she's got great control of the classroom but is also a lot of fun. We are only 4months into the school year and he's on the verge of reading! Excellent school!!!
Marvin Elementary is a great school. Now that parents in the neighborhood are keeping their children in our neighborhood school and not choicing out we are seeing increased enrollment and lots of parent involvement. Marvin is a seminar school with 2 full seminar classes. All Marvin Students enjoy science lab every week with a special science teacher. Marvin has lots of extra-curricular activities after school and many fun functions throughout the year. The teachers my children have had at Marvin have been outstanding. Marvin now has a developmental Pre-K program. Come to Marvin Elementary! We can soon be a #10 school with your support!!
Great school with a wonderful principal and staff. Some great teachers. Kids are are very happy and thrive in this encouraging, positive learning environment.
Excellent School - Extremely supportive of my son who was transitioning from Foster Care to our home. Academics are high and teachers and principal all extremely supportive. There are a few parents who are negative but thankfully, they are pulling their kids out. A+++ school
Excellant academic program, many extracurricular activities, a great deal of parental involvement. My child is a Type 1 diabetic, the principal and staff have been extremely supportive of he medical condition and have provided necessary accomodations.
We think this school is wonderful! Our experience has always been positive, especially with our child that has special needs. The teachers keep us informed at all times and really get to know the children. The academic standards are very high with the expectation that all children will meet them and that all children will learn. The changes we have seen over the last several years has made Marvin an outstanding school. We feel that our children are in a well organized, clean and safe school. Many thanks to the teachers and especially the principal for the many positive changes they have made.
Many families are pulling their kids out of this school. This has been a growing trend since the current principal came 3 years ago. He is ruining our school. Don't bother 'Choicing' into this one!
