I have been very pleased with the teachers and administrators at Mustang Elementary. All three of my older sons have had excellent experiences here. The teachers have been professional and concerned for my student(s) and at least two of our teachers have earned their masters degree. The one time I had to contact the principal about a problem, she addressed it efficiently and professionally. We are soon moving out of state and I'll miss this school when my little girl begins her public education.

In my experience with Mustang Elementary the staff has always gone above and beyond. When my child was being bullied by another student the teacher and assistant principal immediately investigated the issue. They truly care about each child and their education. They do a lot of fundraising but it all goes back to the school to buy better equipment for their students! They also have more up to date technology ie I pads and smart boards than other schools in the district.

One star for this school, is one too many! I agree with the other parent that says this school has teachers that are bullies! The principals are completely unprofessional and put on a show and act like they have your child's interest at heart. However, the sad truth is that this school lacks any concern for the child and puts their own interests (such as fundraising, fundraising and spending their funding) as a priority. Unless your child is a saint, they (and you) will be labeled and bullied relentlessly. Think twice before enrolling!

I am not impress with ME at all. Leadership lacks when going to the principal to resolve an ongoing was worthless! They have teachers that are bullies, and no one in charge to resolve the problem. Teachers should set examples, and encourage our children. If you want your child in a good school that teaches a child respect, sincerity, and actually get an education instead of feeling worthless move somewhere else. Warning!, Going to this school can be harmful to your child's future.

When my family moved here from another state, our son was having trouble with school. Mustang Elementary took him by the hand and within a year he was a completely different child. He was at grade level and exceeded everyones expectations. My youngest son loves the school also and so do we. The teachers are the most caring I have ever seen.

My son loved attending kindergarden at Mustang Elem. The teachers were allways willing to discuss matters in a timely manner. We would have liked all day kindergarden but it was not to be. Hopefuly kindergarden will be all day in the next two years:)

Over all I think M.E. is a great school. The teachers really care about the kids and the kids love the teachers. When we have had a problem the Princial and Vice Principle have been there to help us in every way they can. I give it a thumbs up!
