Best decision we have ever made for our son! First school to ever challenge him academically. Watching his spiritual growth is amazing. School has great kids, teachers, and parents. Love the hockey and lacrosse coaches, too. All these have helped our son grow into a responsible young man. Looking forward to another one attending this fine school.
Love Mullen! I came from a public school and worried about fitting in, but lots of people do. The community is great. The academics are great and challenging. And they have a great sports program. I couldn't be happier. It really sets you up for a bright future. I recommend this school strongly
Wow. I have two current students-both honors/AP students. The comments about freshmen honors english couldn't be more wrong. This is definitely one of the best classes and I don't know another parent who disagrees! There are parents who think their child is the chosen one and their delicate eyes and senses can't handle any "worldy" literature. Good luck in the real world. Oh and good luck at the next school. You might try the convent. This is a great school and a good fit for a variety of teens. I don't believe a word about that parent's comments on spiritual development. Mullen has an overwhelming student population of spiritually devoted young men and women. True community spirit. It's awesome!
This is not a Catholic high school - this is a private high school with a Catholic history. The academic curriculum is more concerned about adhering to worldly standards than it is with developing its students morally, spiritually, and intellectually while adhering to Catholic principles of excellence. We just pulled our straight-A, scholarship recipient, freshman student out after completing the first trimester after she was assigned reading material loaded with profanity, sexual content, racism, violence, and anti-Catholicism in her English Honors class that was condoned all the way up through the principal. We were told that if we objected to the R-rated "literature" assigned in this and future classes that we were expecting "special treatment." If you value your children's faith development, find another school. This school can say that they are 100% faithful to the Magisterium of the Roman Catholic Church on their website, but they don't let it influence their curriculum outside of the Theology department.
I love Mullen! I came from public school and fit right in. It is a very diverse school. The academics are challenging and there are a lot of options. The athletics are great and fun to follow, but certainly don't overshadow the importance of academics. The tradition is great and helps to create a true Mullen family, even for those like me who are not Catholic. As of now (2011) Mullen is going through a time of transition, but is already making great strides toward an even brighter future.
A fantastic school. While people complain about sports being the "soul" of the school, it isn't true. The media portrays the school as being so. I haven't heard of any other school that has the quality teaching and overall quality of Mullen. I took honors and AP classes and have clearly seen their impact in my life. I can also confidently say I have seen other schools honors courses and AP courses, including some IB programs, and they don't compare to Mullen's. The school holds its students to an extremely high standard. I would absolutely suggest Mullen to hard working students and their parents. It is worth the sacrifice.
What a place for structure- foundation- spirit- ethics- values-academics-athletics-principles! What more could we ask for in a school for our children- The pride can be felt all around the Mullen campus- on a "daily" basis---------it overwhelmingly the best fit for our son!
Amazing school. Prepared our son for university incredibly well - plus, he recieved so much academic scholarship money because of the great education he recieved at Mullen. We love this school. Great community. Great spirit and values!
My daughter graduates from Mullen this next spring (2009), and I couldn't be happier with the education she's received. Academically, the school is world-class. She will graduate with six AP classes on her record - practically her freshmen year at college done - and she aced the three AP tests she's taken already (two fives and a four). It's a very friendly, spiritual place where she's feels welcomed by everyone. She told me her freshmen year, 'It's easy to make friends here; you just sit by yourself at lunch and someone invites you over.' BTW, she doesn't play any sports, and that's no problem there whatsoever. I guarantee that her three siblings will follow her to Mullen!
I'm currently a Mullen student and I love mullen! It's a great school and I would suggest it to any eighth graders looking for an awesome highschool to put on their college app!
I am a Mullen Student and I can honestly say that Mullen is a fantastic school and you should recommend coming here. Yeah, the sports are big, but where are they not big? The academics are what is really important to me. The classes are challenging and that is what causes me to learn. Come visit!
Mullen is definitely the best school in Colorado. As a former student, i can honestly say that going there was one of the best decisions of my life. There are a lot of mullen haters out there, and truth be told they are just jealous, but who wouldn't be? You truley cannot get better than mullen and i would reccomend this school at the highest level to any student looking for an exciting and challenging high school career, as well as the birghtest of futures. Trust me, this school is amazing.
i lovew this school and you cant get better than it, this school is very well rounded and it has a very good campus and the children attending this school are very bright.
This school is a very well rounded school. It helps the students challenge them selves. The faculty is also very good with the students and helps them learn.
A very quality experience for students and parents. High marks for spiritual, academic, athletic, social, emotional and physical development of teens. Graduates are well prepared for the university experience, academically and socially. Great school spirit, with students, staff, parents and educators who really care about building ethical indivdual character, team spirit and active citizenship. We have had 5 children go through Mullen with great success in every case.
Mullen is mediocre at best, Sports are the big draw. New blood, higher expectations and some discipline would be helpful as well as less emphasis on boys sports.
My daughter is a freshman at Mullen, and up until very late last spring she was to attend another Catholic HS. For various reasons, she switched course and went to Mullen in the fall with less than total enthusiasm, but it is the best decision we have made as a family. She loves it, and so do my wife and I. The teachers are great, the environment is supportive and enthusiastic, and the parent involvement is outstanding. I can unreservedly recommend Mullen.
After one semester at another private Catholic High School my son transferred to Mullen. This is a school that meets the needs of the individual student. It was a great move and worth every dime. This is a school run by the staff and not the parents. A wonderful change.
My daughter currently goes to mullen, she will graduate 2008. When she started there, she was definitely not gung ho about the whole idea. This year, she joined the poms team (lets face it, she cant throw a ball to save her life and dancing is her passion) and she has started to love it. The spirit at their school, the school spirit is impeccable, and seeing the homework levels and class levels of the kids she used to go to school with, she is excelling quite abundantly. Mullen is more like a family than a school. And its a great school to send your kids to.
My son is a student at Mullen High School. He will graduate in 2008. Mullen is one of the greatest schools if not the greatest. Academic performance is of the out most important. Sure Football, Basketball and all the other sports at Mullen are entertaining and help keep the students focused, but Mullen is so much more than a sports school. I am hoping my son will get some scholarships for some great colleges but never the less, I know he is prepared for a great future. Yes, my son is a Football player but his academic skills are so much more exceptional. He is an awesome kid as is Mullen an awesome school. GO Mullen Mustangs!
