Mullen is an amazing school! Children truly become part of a family here. If your child has special needs they will work with you to ensure their well being and sense of security. Any problems at all, they take care of it right away. We love that the school ends with 3rd grade, which is a safer and more comfortable environment for our child. They even have an onsite counselor who is amazing. With the implementation of Steven Covey's 7 habits, these kids are all being exposed to a model for lifetime success. No I dont work there. I am just over the moon for the school and quite honestly, will be sad when 4th grade comes and we have to move on to another school. Mullen is a true gem and I for one, am thrilled to have my son there!

Yes Mr McKenna and the staff are wonderful, but cheers to the cafeteria staff as well--as soon as the teachers drop their kids off, this fine staff watches over them and makes sure they have nutricious meals!

I think the school is wonderful with great staff and Mr.McKenna is the best. The school and teachers are the best in the whole city but the PTA rules everything else. More parents need to get involved to find out the real deal.

Mullen Elementary school has a solid base of quality teachers, allows for parent involvement and has steadily increased its quality of programs over the past decade to meet the ever changing NYS standards. Unfortunately the leadership isn't what it seems as their is much inner turmoil that runs between McKenna and his staff. On the plus side the staff overcomes the leaderships inadequacies (never judge a book by its cover)with much hardwork and dedication to the children. Mullen is a quality school overall and is one of the best in the City of Tonawanda.

Mr. McKenna stands out amongst Pricipals. The leadership is top notch, the teachers are excellent, and the intervention/prevention methods are outstanding. Definately a top notch school.

My child has been at Mullen School for 5 years, this is his final year there. I have been more than impressed with Mr. Mckenna's leadership skills as well as his personal involvement with the students. This is a principal who makes it a point to know each and every student by name. I hope they keep up the good work, my middle child will be attending next year.
