I am on my 4th child threw this school. It was great. The last 4 years there has been such turn over with the teachers. They are all teachers just out of school. Administration doesnt seemed to be concerned when I talked to the Principal. I am transferring my child to another school that is more stable. The students are let out early to go to the bus's, I dont feel welcome by administration and everyone looks so unhappy. I have 13 years at this school with my children, Sad to go but my child needs a good atmosphere and a good teacher.

We have been so please with MMES. We were worried about the transition mid-year third grade to a new city and a new school. The MMES community took our son in and he has excelled academically and personally over the past year and a half. He is active in many different school sponsored clubs and is student council president. He is involved in many community and charity events. His fourth grade teacher was so motivating and challenged him to always do his best. We look forward to fifth grade and all that MMES will have in store for him. As an educator myself, I can tell you that I am beyond pleased with the care and attention given to each child and their families from the smiling faces that greet you in the office, to the school nurses (best I've ever known), to the caring educators who really go the extra mile to support learning outcomes for children and encourage family and community collaboration.

We have LOVED Manzano Mesa!!! We chose our home in the school boundaries, as it was rated well, and have not been disappointed. We've had great teachers, no bullying problems and enjoyed the awesome after school programs! We have had 2 children here for 3 years and it's been a great experience.

My family and I recognize this school to all. The teachers are fanastic and the school faculty are awesome people to work with. I wish my children could have attended many more years of school there. Ms McBride/Ms Mondaragon is super awesome! We miss Manzano Mesa Elementary. The most important about this school is a lot of parent involvement, and open door communication between teachers and parents. Thanks a lot for reading this message.

My children have been attending MMES since the school was opened. I have been with MMES 7 yrs now, and This 2011-2012 yr will be my last. I have to say that all the teachers I worked with have been great. I have not found any problems that can not be fixed. I will say that MMES biggest lost was Mr. Brown, This school will always be number one in the city and I will encourage all to attend. If you dont take the time to be part of this school you will never get what is offered.

Manzano Mesa is an extremely wonderful school. The teacher's are very caring and concerned about each and every one of their students. The front office staff are very helpful and friendly. As a parent, I have always felt very welcome and have always been encouraged to talk to the teachers about the progress of my children. Both my kids love this school and are receiving a great education. Keep up the good work MM!

Wow, I cannot believe all of the positive reviews that I have read about Manzano Mesa Elementary. I was actually excited to move to Albuquerque and send my daughter to this school after I read all of the positive feedbak, but now I realize that this school is a disgrace. Last school year, my daughters teacher was great (she was the only person there that kept me from going crazy over the fact that my daughter was going to such a crummy school). This year, her teacher is terrible! Too bad I have to keep this to a 150 word minimum because I could go on and on. MME is terrible!!!

I love this school so far. My daughter has only been there 2 months, but her teachers are great, lots of communication. PTA is fabulous & very active & involved. Facilities are wonderful, with new everything in the main building. Great parent room & library. Curriculum is fun & my daughter is thriving! Diversity is important to me & classes are very diverse too. Thrilled with all aspects of the school

Manzano Mesa Elementary School is absolutely the best school in Albuquerque. I am also a parent and my child learned so much from this school. The administration is very fair, caring, and helpful. The office staff is absolutely amazing. The redirector at this school is the greatest I have seen. She is so helpful with the students and very informative immediately to the parents. The teachers at this school are top notch, the best of the best.
