They have the best teachers and best students and we have been hit hard this year because of the state budget and has lost some of our staff. Money would help boost out spirits.

I love Mars Hill Elementary! The staff is so friendly and nice to the children. And the principal is the kindest man to the kids I've ever seen in a school!

I went to this school as a child and now my children attend this school. Overall, I have to say that the teachers are wonderful. However, I am concerned that the administration, with the exception of the superintendant, operates at a political level. I feel that unless a parent is 'a part of the loop', or if he/she disagrees on certain issues, then the status of the child's demeanor drops tremendously. I find this not only unprofessional but greatly unfair to the student and can have a very negative result in the child's overall well being. I am very apologetic to those teachers who do work hard to give our children a wonderful education and am grateful, not only as a parent but as my child's 'protector', for those few good teachers who really love what they do. Thank You.

Both of my children attend Mars Hill Elementary and love it! The new facilities are beautiful with so many personal touches and great teacher who really care about going the extra mile for their students. There are lots of clubs and activities and my 5th grader stays after with her teacher, Mrs. Harvey, to do AIG science and reading projects two or three days a week! There are so many great teachers at Mars Hill Elementary...like Robin Ray, Claire Gillespie, Mary Smith, Kathy Pfeffer...the list goes on and on.

My daughter started going to Mars Hill Elementary last school year. I have 2 neices and a nephew who have attended this school since they first started school. They have excellent teachers. I love the fact it's such a small town and everyone knows your child by first name when they walk down the halls. I like all the friendliness around Mars Hill Elementary School and I am proud to have a child attending there.

Mars Hill Elementary has got the School of Exelence again this year. My son will be going into the 4th grade, and my daughter will be going into the 3rd grade when summer is over. The teacher's my children have had so far have been great teacher's. My son scored 4's on his EOG test's. His teacher, Sheila Saunder's was one of the best teacher's I've known. She put my son in a special class, for gifted student's. He's a math genious. He was on the A-B honor-roll, this year. Ithink it's one of the best school's ever. I am proud to live in a community where the children and their education come first.
