Both of my children attended this school and I could have not been happier. The teachers are top-notch. I feel like this school is a leader in innovative programs emphasizing reading and math. The environment is safe and friendly. I think this school is the best elementary school in the area.

Mancelona school is a well behind school. Some of the teachers are great as others should not be teachers at all. My younger children are doing good in school. Different to say for the older one that goes to the middle school. The child is struggling due to the homework b n extremely easy b cause its work they have already done in their old school from down state. so now she is not learning nothing new at all. And I feel like the school system does not discipline their children accordingly. They have their picks. lets just put it this way if I had the gas money to take my kids some where else I would. and If I could move out of this town I just moved to I would. I moved here to get my kids away from the big city. but this town is full of trashy people who couldn't move to Gaylord or T.C so if you are planning to move to mancy .Don't spend the extra money and move to T.C. or Gaylord. the extra money is worth it for your children to get the education they deserve.

I will move my family away before letting my two youngest kids attend any of Mancelona schools. My oldest attended and he went from loving school to hating it. He also went from A's to C's & D's. They do not listen to the kids or parents. Some of their teachers are great, but without decent leadership it really doesn't matter. My oldest son pulled his child from this school system & so have ALL my sisters, brothers, nieces & nephews. Believe me that is ALOT of kids. The only way any of the kids in my very large family will ever return to Mancelona Public Schools is if there are some drastic changes to the whole system (including getting rid of some of the teachers & principals).
