My child has attended Mulrennan for 6th and 7th grade and it has been nothing but a COMPLETE nightmare! It starts from the administration and I can count on one hand how many decent teachers my son has had. The students are just a number and forget a parent who has concerns or tries to be involved. MANY teachers frankly just have too much and too little time to go the extra mile for the kids, but who suffers? OUR kids do. The homework load is ridiculous, As a parent, I feel I should be getting a salary for all the late nights and outside tutors we have had to get just to get by. When asked by friends if 'like' my kids' school? Umm, that's not hard to answer with a big NO! Very much considering pulling them out and going elsewhere. This school's administration needs to seriously revamp 'EDSBY' (what a joke), instill back in their mentality why is it they actually chose teaching as a career, and putting children first to remember they are not herds of cattle or robots, they are young impressionable kids that are not all the same and be treated and taught as such.
When will they send the information packets for school ? I like to start my school shopping early so I don't have to do it later. My daughter is so excited to go to 6th grade.
I am a parent that came 2 years ago from Puerto Rico. My first son was 7th and 8th grade in this school and my second son is currently in 6th grade. My third son is coming to 6th grade next year in this school. It is a great school, great gifted program, academically challenged curriculum and a great principal that makes the school a very safe place for the studetns. I would highly recommend this school to anyone.
I am a student here, and I can proudly say that Mulrennan is an excellent school with an amazing staff and teachers who actually care about the students. The teachers here are nice, caring, and they actually have a sense of humor and are able to make learning fun! If you are having trouble and are not as smart as others, they have wonderful tutoring programs in the mornings, and teachers would be willing to help the student as well. The staff here is dedicated and willing to do whatever it takes to make our Mulrennan Mustangs healthy, safe, and they want us to succeed. This is my last year at Mulrennan, and I have to say that I am sad to go. This is a wonderful school, and if you are considering putting your student into this school, there really is no better choice than Mulrennan.
i think that this is the best school i have ever been to. i loved mulrennan. it had a fanominal band and orchadstra with my most favorite teacher mr. vail. he helped me on my way to greatness. i play the violin and viola. it is funny that he doesnt know how to play the violin but he can teach it perfect. and mr. klas my science teacher was also one of my favorite. he teaches 8th grade science and i really recomend him. i really have nothing bad to say about this school. there are some fights once in a while but i mean what school doesnt
My grandson was ill recently and thanks to the generous and beyond her scope as a teacher, Mrs. Forsythe (6th grade math) helped him keep up with his assignments.
My daughter loves to go to Mulrennan every day! She love all her teachers!
I went to mulrennan all three of my middle school years. I'm currently a junior at Durant. Mulrennan made me the success I am today. The teachers inspired me to live up to my potential and to pursue anything, without hesitation. I had a rough home life. The teachers at mulrennan stepped in as parents and never let me fall. I am thankful that I have been blessed to have gone there. The Choral Program led by Mr. Mallernee is phenominal as well. Mulrennan is a family, always embracing and cherishing the hope for tomorrow.
awesome school! youll get a kick outta this one! mr. ducker, the principle, is very talented and is a fantastic leader:)
This is my second year at school here and i love it! They try to make sure parents aand children are happy and they go to a great extent to show it. Many parents say that they haven't been informed of anything and the administrative office is unorganized but i can assure you that children are told and they send out letters and even call home. Im very proud of my school and i also love my teachers. I have learned alot from fifth grade to now and i know your children will too. [=
This is my last year at Mulrennan, and it's a nice school. Not strict enough in my opinion, and not hard enough on the students. I am an advanced student though, but everything is to easy for me. Top classes are not enough, but they will do. Yes, I loved it here all the teachers are great, but I can not wait till high school!
I am a teacher at Mulrennan and have been here since day one. I recognize individuals have opinions both favorable and nonfavorable: that is the right of each person. Yet, for the sake of individuals who want a fair, honest picture of how the school truly is, let me point out a few things about our school. Parent Contact/Involvement: 1. We have quarterly Parent/Teacher conference nights. 2. We have a website with great information. For instance: a. A calendar of events (including extr-curricula activities) b. Teacher homework webpages with homework assignments posted daily. c. Grades posted online updated at least weekly. d. Teacher email addresses 3. We have a local radio station that broadcasts school events. 4. We have the Iris System, a direct-call phone system that alerts parents to important events. Instruction: The school has scored an 'A' every year since its opening. I have more to say, but not enough space provided. We are a great family.
Tons of my teachers are absoulutley hilarious. Mulrennan has most certainly improved since my 6th grade year.

this is a great school with great teachers and an exelent ag program in fact im now on special asighnment to this school
After having two other kids in middle school, this is an awsome school. I cant say enough about it. Thie pric. is great. How many princ. do you know will go on the kids field trip at the end of the year and walk around in the heat just making shure all is well and that the kids are having fun? The teachers are wonderful also. With the online program, I can go on every day to check the school work.
I am going into seventh grade this coming year, I was in the honors 'team' last year, which was a very well behaved group of kids.And our teachers strictly enforce an orderly classroom, and for their pupils to give them respect.But,as we came across kids from other teams, the teachers grasp on the children,seem to dwindil.Electives are very easy to get into, and so are sports.In sports, however, they check if the child is passing.Parent evolvement is not of the utmost, but I have been to a PTA board meeting(it was right before a concert)and there was about 40 parents there.Teachers are genuinely concerned about the wellbeing of your child.But it does seem your child is!Kids generally don't convey what's going on at school,or that the teacher wants a meeting with you.You usually find a piece if paper in their backpack.I think the school,overall, is great.
I have a child going into 7th grade, and our experience in the 6th grade has caused great concern! This school has been very de-motivating for my child, and we are considering moving. This school needs a serious overhaul.
