My child is a 7th grader at this school. She has not had a very good experience. I feel that they allow bullying to happen and it is not addressed properly. I will be looking at switching my child at the end of the school year.

I am a seventh grader at this school and it is been a very good experience so far. Although I do have a few concerns. Some staff are rude and don't care for the students. My math teacher made a student teach the class all by her self while she was on her phone and computer. Some students do not follow the dress code and don't get in trouble; what's with that. By that I mean short dresses sagging pants and see through shirts with only a bra under. Please fix these minor problems for our school to become brighter and full of learning.

I am a former student of MMS. I had a great experience there. The Deans were helpful and easy to talk to. The teachers challenged you and made your brain work. Parents seem to say in the reviews that the teachers aren't good, maybe their child wasn't focused? I always challenged and put to the test, ALWAYS. The BEST part of MMS, is the Music Department. I believe they had been told to have the best in CCSD! The band last year (8th grade year) took home EVERY PRIZE at Cali Festival! I was in Orchestra, Mr. Riley made the class eccentric! He made my cello playing from a grade to a passion! The Choir is phenomenal as well.

I do not think you are going to find a better school in Nevada. The teachers are easily approachable as is the administration. They offer great opportunities for the kids and it really feels like a safe and careing environment.

Some parents maybe concerned becasue of the size of this school. ( 1800 kids) but there is no need. The leadership team is well organized and involved. The campus is open; parents are welcome and incouraged to visit. The special education dept is caring and focused on making each child reach their fullest potentional. The teachers are not only highly educated but want to teach. The kids are well behaved and respectful. Rules are clear and followed at this school. Great school with a great staff and parents that care.

Not a huge fan of this school. I find that the office is lackadaisical. The teachers seem to take a lot of days off. We also have found a problem with parent link be updated on a regular basis. If they are going to commit to uploading grades and giving parents away to support progress-then they should be updating daily. Office staff is staunch with parents and students. I wish we could afford private school. The design of this school is horrendous. Every time I take my child to school-I feel like one of these kids will be hit in that crosswalk on Paradise Hills. There is no crossing guard and you have parents that are in a hurry racing to drop their kids off = not a good scenario. I would also encourage that teachers NOT give their opinions on politics in school. Teachers should deliver education as unbiased as possible.

The school is okay. There are many good things about it. Some of the teachers are really excellent, the kind who restore your faith in the public school system. But there are also teachers who should not be in the teaching profession, and who seem to be there only because they have been teaching for so long, I'm guessing they are impossible to dislodge - a representation for what is wrong with the public school system. My children have experienced both, unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on how you see it).

I hardly believe a word of this. 1. Teachers do not give away grades for a signature. 2. How is it a teacher's fault if your child is goofing off in the classroom? 3. Show me one school that doesn't have office aides. 4. You should be glad we screen adults before letting them near your children. Imagine the alternative! And finally, there is no chance your child was in a computer lab unsupervised. They are locked at all times unless a teacher is in there. These allegations are false, and most likely the rantings of a parent of an expelled student.

This is school is okay. 6th grade is the easiest and 7th and 8th are very hard. :> But the teachers are okay, some are mean, and some are just okay.

Mannion is an okay school .I agree with most of these comments!! The children should be in the classroom not up front doing the teachers job and pay more attention to the students. I'm taking my daughter out also! Go online there is free public school online here in NV. That's what I'm trying! Better Education for our children.

The teachers are okay but I feel like the work is elementary and they give A's away for parent signature's. I haven't seen my daughter have any projects. There is no supervision. I pop in and find my daughter in the rest room goofing off or I wait for her at lunch but she's in an unsupervised computer room with some boy. The office is horrible. Staff is rude and most of the time you have to deal with a student 'working' the front desk. You try to get a 7th grader to pay attention when she's yacking to her friend. After I got to an adult to ask if I could come down to check on my daughter I had to go through 3 people including a dean til they would approve it. I would never leave my hormone filled 6th grader here. Needless to say she is homeschooled now.

The Deans and administration of Mannion MS consistently fail to address issues of bullying and harrassment in their school. This lack of discipline does not facilitate education; students should be free to learn without fear in their school environment. This school does not provide the educational environment every child should have the privilege of
—Submitted by a parent

Mannion is a good school that can either propel your child to do better, or at worst maintain the status quo. Certain teachers are knowledgeable and competent in their subject areas (Teachers of the Year), while others are less concerned with their students and more aware of when the last bell rings to go home. Ask other parents and students which teachers are the best (NOT necessarily the easiest) and your experience here will be more fruitful! The Principal, Dr. Erbach, does his best to create an environment that puts students first, yet the inconsistency of some teachers and the frequent rotation/transfers that occur in the Dean's office has lead to a largely unenforceable discipline policy. All of this to say that I would enroll my own kids at this school. I would just make certain that they were placed in the classes of the best teachers.

Posted June 25, 2007

Overall, Mannion is okay; though, I really, really didn't like it. However, that was primarily because of the students, not the staff. This school has some wonderful staff, such as Mr. McMurray :), Ms. Siewert, and Mr. Riley. It also has some terrible staff. The orchestra teacher, Mr. Riley, is wonderful. I don't know about art or sports. I saw little parent involvment except on field trips.

Have had one child at this school, currently have a 7th grader here and this Fall a 6th grader. The school is currently overcrowded because the of closure of Burkholder MS. which will be reopening in the Fall 07. This will result in a smaller school population as well as eliminating the need to share lockers. Considering that they had to accommodate an entire other school, they have handled it well. My kids are and have been happy here and we look forward to the smaller population this Fall.

Posted April 12, 2007

This school is in need of improvement! They need better supervision for the children. They also need more locker space for P.E. so the children are not having to share lockers. Sharing lockers created some concerns with missing items and bullying. Some of the problems with the bullying have not been handled accordingly. There are a few members of the staff (not teachers), who are very unprofessional. So far the majority of teachers as well as the principal have been very fair, and kind. Mannion just needs to work out some kinks and make some changes that will address some of the loop holes on their campus.

So far I am very impressed with this school. My kids have no complaints. They have a lot of clubs to offer after school. They seem very organized for being a newly opened school.
