This school is phenomenal!! We have attended another elementary school in the past (in the same county) and the experience here has been night and day compared to the other school. The Principal and VP are both extremely approachable. You can always expect a return phone call or email from them. One of our kiddos has special needs and the school has been extremely accommodating. He is a part of typical classrooms and well respected. The principal has created a fun learning environment for the kids and the "trickle down effect" of great leadership is apparent within the entire school. Our second child is in the gifted program and I have been impressed how the teachers continue to raise the bar for her in areas that she excels and assist her in areas that she could gain more confidence. This school has special group meetings complied of children from all grades-they all wear their group colors on selected days and complete fun activities together. It is not uncommon for our son, who has special needs, to receive "high fives" as we walk him down the school hall b/c he has been introduced to so many new friends in different grades. Means the world to our family! Highly recommend!!

My son is graduating from Mashburn this year while my daughter graduated in 2012. For the most part, we had a good experience with all the teachers. They all are very dedicated and care for their students' character and educational progress. In the end, that is what should be considered when choosing a school. Unfortunately, Mashburn's reputation is tied to its CRCT scores as that is what gives the school it's 'ranking'. On that basis, Mashburn has been sliding over the years for whatever reason. So, if you want a school that cares about its students, Mashburn is a great school. But if you want to say you are sending your kids to an 'elite' school, then Daves Creek or Big Creek will fit that bill better. I personally think a child makes a school elite and not the other way around. I rather get value for my money when buying a home (instead of forking $100-150KK above fair value) and enjoy the beautiful lake scenery and nature than get too tied up in the 'ranking' system. Teach your kids the value of education and it will not matter if they went to a 9 star school or 10 star elementary school to become successful in life.

I love this school! My son has special needs and they've gone above and beyond to not only help him feel "included" but also to meet him where he's at socially, academically and emotionally.

We have three kids that go here. My daughter is so sad to go to middle school because she loves Mashburn. Mashburn is AWESOME and I feel blessed that she was a part of this school from K-5...all I can say.

Love Mashburn! The school is small enough to still have a family-like atmosphere while providing excellent teachers and academic programs.

As a former elementary school teacher myself, I am very pleased with the quality of the staff and instruction at Mashburn. The atmosphere between staff and students is wonderful, and parents are welcomed to be as involved as they wish. The 'small town' atmosphere and smaller school size at Mashburn were an unexpected and wonderful surprise. Great academics, great teachers, great kids.You'll love this school!
