Mary Lillard Intermediate offers a great school in a great district. The teachers are all highly qualified educators that have several years of teaching under their belt. Students receive top notch instruction as well as many hands-on, real world experiences through research based projects and activities. This campus has experienced growing pains as the neighborhood expands and brings in more students each year. Mansfield ISD and Lillard have worked very hard to keep the students as the priority. Way to go, Lillard!

Most of the teachers that I've met are excellent, but I do not care for administration at all. They have forgotten what it's like in the classroom. You can't have adult expectations for 5th and 6th graders, or really, unreasonable expectations considering I have yet to see a teacher's lounge where the teachers were expected to eat without socializing. It's school, not prison.

I can't believe no one has reviewed this school recently. I think 7 is a little high for this school. The couple of ok teachers can hardly make up for an administration that could care less about most of the kids, and more than a few teachers that are wack. What is going on anymore with teachers. My neighbor was a teacher and she proudly admitted she became a teacher to get plastic surgery in the summers. My experience was that if you brought bullying up to them, they would then suddenly start noticing little things your kid is doing that never happened before. Just horrible.

This school has terrible leadership. The staff is so unprofessional and this school only cares about certain students. I took my child out of this school as soon as I could. The administration does not protect the students. There have been incidences of students trying to put other student's heads in the school toilets. My child was miserable here with the chaos and coldness of the atmosphere. This school needs a whole new staff --beginning with the administration. Shame on You Mansfield ISD for such poor leadership and exampleship. Shame!

I like the pricipal with great communication through parents for any special events. The school adopted after program activities which are great to keep kids busy. However, the teachers needs to give student more challanges, more creative technique by mixing fun together with academic in every subjects and continue pay attention to each student individually for specific needs.

I have so enjoyed working at Lillard. The school is truly kid focused, and the support from administration to help us teachers meet the needs of our students is always there. I feel blessed to have landed a teaching position at this school.

Wow! We have moved around a lot and this school is great. Teachers and principals really care about students and are invested in individual children. Communication is great; we always know what is going on this year.

We have a 5th grader at Mary Lillard and have been very pleased with the cirriculum offered as well as the response of the teachers. Ours is ADHD and they have responded very well to his needs. He can be as involved as he wants to be. It takes parental involvement to make a school great!

There is one main problem with Texas Schools and that is the standardized TEKS test. It requires teachers to 'teach to the test' rather than creatively having students learn. It also puts unnecessary pressure on students. The 'no child left behind' is a great concept but doesn't work. It has created a school system that is inside the box and has totally ended creative teaching and learning. Get rid of TEKS!
