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!
Great school, had a great principal in Dr. McKenna...he is on to Fletcher...Had Great teachers but some also are being moved...so time will tell if Mullencan remain a great school...
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 do not like the pta at al. but the rest of the schpool is out of this world.
yes the school is wonderful and the teachers are the best in the city, even though they're under-paid... and mr mckenna is the one and only top principal in the whole city.
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.
Excellent school- the teachers are wonderful and are very involved with each and every student!!!! the principal is the best i have ever seen and knows each student by name- he's completely involved and along with the teachers get the students involved in learning and participating!!
My daughter is a first grader at Mullen. She is a student with a disability and has received the best education possible in the past two years at mullen. My family is a huge fan of the teachers and staff at this school, they have made an easy transition for my child. We look forword to our 2 other children some day attending this school as well.
Ths school is very well organized.My kids really love the school is the best in tonawanda if you ask me.
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.
Mullen elementary school is a great school. My 2 boys go to Mullen and they love it! the principal is very involved with the students and makes each one feel important. The teachers are great with the kids. It is a very positve enviroment.
Both of my daughters attended Mullen School and loved it! The teachers not only taught my daughter everything they need to know, but they also loved my children! The PTA there is great! we were very sad to leave such a great 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.
