I was very pleased last year but this year it leaves something to be desired. My child's first grade teachers were amazing (Mrs. Engle and Feliciano). My child learned a great deal of Spanish and their is a free violin program. This year though they are not learning as much Spanish. The teachers are overworked and some of the classes are especially difficult. My child used to love school but no longer holds the same enthusiasm. Overall, It is a good school but it could be much better.

After several issues with the teacher I've attended meeting with the principle trying to express my concerns and even asked to move my child to another classroom. The principle always told me she'll take care of the situation and move my child to another classroom but failed to. My child also wasn't being challenged, his reading and math is above his grade level and instead of giving him the appropriate grade level subjects they gave my son subjects he already knew and just passed him along the system. K-12 online will be his next school because Detroit schools are a big joke.... or at least Maybury is!

Despite financial problems this is a great school to work at. It is centered in the heart of Mexican Town and the general feeling I have gotten from the students and parents is that family and a sense of community is very important to them. The staff is very dedicated to improving academic performance and test scores, as well as increasing awareness of environmental and social issues. Overall Maybury is a great place to attend school as well as work.

If you can't afford to move to a suburb for a superior education, then living in Detroit, within Maybury boundaries is your best bet! The principal goes out of her way to help each student and their parent(s) academically, socially, even financially if necessary. Although the teachers seem weary, overwhelmed,under-resourced, and underpaid, in general they maintain a positive attitude and a willingness to go the extra mile for their students. Unfortunately, parent involvement is less than optimal, but it's nice to see that the few families that do contribute to the Maybury community give 100%. Until my family can afford to move north to the 'burbs, we'll stay close to Maybury and continue to send all of our children there.

I really don't like Maybury School; It hasn't egough space for kids, the gym is small,doesn't have air condition, smells nasty in summer time,and the kids lunch room is in the gym too. Bathrooms are ugly, cold and no paper. The school building is old, rooms are small. It doesn't have any sport class. School doesn't have any guard or safety personal to take care of the kids getting out school,anyone easely could kidnap any kid, also the clark street is really dandegous to cross, they don't count with any school patrol like others school to put order in streets. Theacher are nice and hardworking people,they are always working with all kids. Principal Elen Snedeker is a nice lady, always triyng do the best, but they will need more budget to do someting else, because they can't do it alone. So think twice if your want put your child in this school that need a huge improvement.
