There are many things I appreciate about MLA, but at the top of my list is the willingness of the teachers to work with each child as an individual. Children learn in different ways and at different speeds, and this school takes the time to find out what works for YOUR child... not how the statistics say they should perform. If we won the $5k, it could go toward a greatly-needed multipurpose room.

I am so grateful for MLA. From the teachers to the principal to the office staff, each and every person is dedicated to the students. I cannot say enough positive things about this school.

My grand daughter's class is small. Her teacher, Mrs. Cope, really cares about each child. The children's security is excellent. I'm pleased that she'll be there for the rest of her elementary schooling.

Caring, innovative, hard working teachers, staff, and volunteers comprise MLA. This school is not just a school but a community for students, parents, and staff. WE all contribute along with our community to prepare the next generation to be innovative, stellar, and community thinkers. The education the students receive at MLA is comprehensive and still includes various 'specials' such as music, library, spanish, art, and drama.

I am so thankful for the team that makes up such a fantastic school...MLA. It is truly a wonderful community to be a part of. My kids LOVE their school and let everyone know it. I recommend this school to everyone and feel so blessed that my kids were able to get in when they did. It's a community that really cares about our kids.

We miss MLA!!! We moved away from the Gresham area to Eugene and are in a 'good' school district but my children (4th grade and Kindergarten) and I miss MLA so much (I keep getting e-mails just to keep up on the school news) We were referred by friends who had a great experience there and we did too. The office staff are so wonderful. They knew each and every child by name and even knew my toddlers name. The class size was wonderful and the teachers were invested in the school and each individual child. I just can't say enough good things about the school. It is truly a wonderful little community (Sigh... maybe they will start an MLA in Eugene)

I started as a parent volunteer at this school when it first opened . Though I struggled with the decision initially, I was grateful for the small school atmosphere and the caring teachers,staff, and parents. I never regretted the decision to move my son to MLA and he was well-prepared for middle school when he left. He left in 2004. I'm still here! I am privileged to work everyday with the students on Outdoor Social Skills (also known as Recess) otherwise you can find me in the office. I whole-heartedly recommend MLA to incoming students and parents.

My kids have been at MLA going on four years. We have seen many changes. Some of the reasons we chose MLA are no longer in force. However, after looking at the alternatives I still think MLA is the best fit for my kids. The teachers and staff know the kids by their first names, they still have the small class sizes, and as a parent, I am able to volunteer in the classroom and in other areas of the school as much as I want. I am able to know the teachers my kids have and the environment they are in first hand. Also, the PTO is not changing the celebration of holidays. That was suggested at a PTO meeting by a parent. As a charter school, we are able to celebrate national holidays, but participation is voluntary.

My child has gone here for going on the 5th year. We have seen so many changes. Some good and bad. The principal definetly has changed the school to be more 'main stream' public like. I have always loved the fact that they celebrate holidays but this year things have changed with new PTO members. The school is moving soon so I am hoping for a good change. Most of the teachers are great. I know there is no such thing as a perfect school but MLA does try hard and being an involved parent is key.

I love it here.......we acutally moved away and came back because we love it here! We have a 3rd grader..in there now and her sister will join her next year as well as a friend of ours! We have tried home schooling, public school and private---this charter school combines all those benefits and yet relieves most of those other stresses! It's a very warm and accepting school with tons of added creativity!! It's the BEST!

I agree that the enviroment has become more like a 'regular' public school with the new changes. Some are good, some not so much. My two children have thrived in this school and we have never had a problem. I like that they do have homework now, but I wish they kept the intergraded reading and math groups. Those groups helped support each individual student in whatever level their ability may be. Overall, it's a great school. Teachers, parents, and staff are all very involved.

The school has new leadership and is very different from the past. It really is very much like your local public school. They made academic changes and never let parents know in advance so they could evaulate the effect for their child. What it says on their web site is not even true. They do have homework everyday, they don't do intergraded teaching. The new changes make this school no longer unique.

Smaller class sizes make this school a terrific place for children to learn and feel safe, with every teacher knowing just about every child at the school. The attention each child receives is instrumental in making this school superior to a standard public school. Because of the nature of the school being one where a parent has made the conscious choice to take their child to that school, there is much more parental involvement, which also lends itself to the safe atmosphere. The children experience music and art as well as receive physical education. Field trips are also planned throughout the year to reinforce subjects being taught, and parents are encouraged to attend these as volunteer helpers, which is a lot of fun! It is a wonderful school, and I cannot say enough great things about the teachers and staff!

I have two children enrolled in this school and I couldn't have asked for a better environment for either of them. We tried another public school in the district and one of the children was 'lost in the shuffle' of other childrens' needs and not made to work up to capacity. Now they are held accountable and made to work in class and the work they are doing is much better than before. Great teachers, great volunteers, wonderful involvement of everyone. I know when they move onto middle school they will be more than ready for the demands of 6th grade.

Excellent School! This school offers a small community school atmosphere in a big city environment. The principal is dedicated, kind and respectful, inspiring children to choose the right. The teachers are exceptional, incorporating all a child's senses during the learning process. They cater to children as individuals, rather than treating one age group as all the same. The results are phenomenal!
