Posted June 3, 2014

Let me just start by saying the children that start in pre k at this school get the absolute best of early education teachers. Mrs. Fletcher is an amazingly sweet attentive teacher. Both of my girls go to Mound and started out with her. They both followed her class with Mrs. Ball, for kindergarten, and she is wonderful as well. My oldest is finishing her third grade year and she hasn't had a teacher disappoint me yet. Even with her ADD and struggling with her through first and second grade, her teacher never gave up and helped me get her on the right track. Third grade was such a big year and i'm very thankful for the time and attention the teachers and counselors and administrators paid to her and she is absolutely thriving. We are looking to move but will not consider anything outside the mound elementary school zone.

My son is in his second year here. There have been several bumps along the way. I think his education is fine. I can tell he is learning so much. I do not like the way some of the staff treat the parents. The school district seems to care as much as the principal and the assistant principal.

Overall I think that Mound is a great school. There have been several changes during the last 2 years and sometimes it takes time to get everything back on track after administration and staff changes. I believe that the majority of the teachers truly care about the children. Of course you will have some not so great ones in any school that you go to. Parent involvement is getting better. It is just hard these days when both parents have to work.

Posted April 15, 2004

My child has been a student here for several years, and with the exeption of his first two teachers I have been poorly disapointed. I do not think my son is getting the same quality of education that others are in this city. I feel that because the majority of our district is low income, that this district is not giving as much to these students. I do not believe Burleson will ever address or correct this issue.
