I've had children in MNE and MNP for 23 years (no typo). MNE had strong leadership at times and poor leadership at times. The current principle is awesome and engaged. She's in her second year over both schools. The former principal (MNE) was a nice person, obviously loved children, but simply an incompetent administrator in my opinion. Prior, the schools had been award winners and often recognized. The present principal is fun, goal driven and has high expectations. The building are dated, but well maintained and clean. Lunches well prepared and actually taste good. The statements about parents being "not welcome" were true under the old principal, but this was never the case previously and not the case since the current principle has lead. Parent participation is much higher than just 2 years ago and there is a marked difference and both administrative and teaching personnel. Submitted by a parent

I would say the same as the parent below, I came from an extremely weathly school and this was a shock but after having my child enrolled I can truly say don't judge by the outside, look at the teacher inside. Its quality, even in the location its at!!! Both my children are happy. The teachers are top quality! That is MNP not the other building! I cant say yet.

My son is in Kindergarten at MNP and while I had some reservations initially, he absolutely loves it. My child is quiet and shy and we've had no bullying problems. They have a very strict no bullying policy and on top of that, the kids are all great. This isn't the school that all the wealthy families have their kids in, but I am convinced that MNP is near the top for character.

My son loves MNP and so do I. Mrs. Parks is a wonderful principal and a truly vibrant person. The teachers are warm and concerned and compassionate towards the kids. My son is in kindergarten and I wouldn't have him anywhere else! The school really inspires self esteem within the children.

We have 2 children who attend Mitchell Neilson Primary. This is by far the best school any of our children have attended. The staff is wonderful and puts alot of thought and time into the children. I am amazed at all the things they do for the children. This is not just a school, in my opinion! It is also a place that teaches more than just academics. They teach important values, from the character building to the community involvement. I am very happy with this school and what my children are learning there.

I have a child who is supposed to be receiving special education services in this school. Yet at every chance possible, they refuse services, lie about what services are available and refuse additional testing that they are required to do by law. I have heard from many different parents as well as pediatricians who are familiar with this school district that this is a regular practice for them. No child that needs services should be denied them, yet this school as well as the district seem to do this on a regular basis.
