I think Mt. Pulaski Elementary School is a great school. We have a safe, clean environment, with dedicated staff who really care about the kids. We offer a variety of programs and sports, and fairly small class sizes.

The Mt. Pulaski School District has been very good to not only myself and my husband, but to our kids. We all received a great education and have gone to achieve higher education degrees. After completing the first semester of college, one of my children remarked, "I guess MPHS was tougher than I thought compared to how well I'm doing vs. my classmates." My children were involved in band, FFA, sports, and scholastic groups which were all very successful and taught them many, many useful skils as they moved on to the next phases of their lives. Incidentally, Mrs. Dulle, her players, and parents work hard to RAISE all of the money spent on the volleyball program.

I've been involved in numerous school districts (public and private), and every one of them has flaws caused by many things (i.e. finances, teachers, parents, students). There are NO perfect schools, but there certainly are great ones. Mt. Pulaski is filled with enthusiastic, educated teachers who sincerely care about the students. The students are typical school age children who work, play, and interact like all children.

I love MPGS. The teachers are hard working (overall), creative, energetic, and very caring. Students with special needs, emotional needs, disabilities, and reading problems get the support and help they need. Students who love sports have many to choose from. Students who love art, music, library, or computers have plenty of opportunities to learn more about those areas. The Homework Club is very helpful for students who don't have support at home to get their homework done. The teachers try to reward students for acheivement in AR, ISATs, good grades, good behavior, Boxtop collection, returning library books, and good manners as well as teach the core subjects. There are a few clubs for the junior high to join and occasional dances. Overall, MPGS is a wonderful school.

This is a great rural school where each child gets the individual attention he or she needs and deserves. Parents are encouraged to get involved and invited to attend monthly PASE (People Acting for Students and Education) meetings. The meeting dates and times are posted in the local paper and on the school's website. Parental involvement always begins with the parent. As a parent, I have been pleased with both the education my children are receiving and with the many ways in which I have been allowed to be involved in the activities of the school.

This school district is completely against any parental involvement in your childs education. If your children attend this school be sure you are parked outside their classroom door to make sure you know how they are doing with their education, and to know what they are teaching in class. I pulled my children out when they tested my son for a reading problem that I was never informed about, and they did not notify me that this testing was going to take place. Be VERY cautios.

As a past student of Mount Pulaski Grade School I feel that other kids that have to go there should read this. MPGS puts almost all its resources into sports, mainly VOLLEYBALL! Also into Boys' Basketball. if you play any other sport you are setting yourself up to be ignored. The teachers are extremely good. The Junior High Teachers are the best. We have an ecxellent Math teacher, even if you stink at math she can help you! also we have an excellent Language Department. Plus and astounding Scince and Social Studies Department. The Primary grades have great teachers to. MOGS puts a lot of money into technology. Every classroom has an average of 2 computers per room.
