I have a first grader in this school and I have had nothing but trouble since trying to enroll him last summer. No one is good at communication from staff to staff or from staff to parent. I am very involved and they are constantly trying to shut me down. They barely have a special needs program and do not want to transfer my son elsewhere. If you can help it, do not move to this school area. We are looking for a house in another school zone to move into already. I can not wait to leave and get my son a decent education! He is falling behind because his teachers will not take the time to help him. I have been teaching him at home, for the most part. It is ridiculous and overwhelming to say the least.

In all the schools I have taught in, Malvern is by far the most enjoyable. We take the time to dive into the data and implement plans that will help our students achieve.

I have 2 children attending Malvern. There are many opportunities for students to become involved. The teachers really care about the whole child and I am proud to be a Malvern Parent!

This is a wonderful school. They have implemented many wonderful programs from student council to the Chess Club. This school has low teacher turnover and they go out of their way to see that every child reaches their full potential!

I would give Malvern probably a 1 out of 5 stars rating. We have been a part of the school since it first opened and have been very disappointed overall with the school. My oldest child had all amazing teachers, but my middle child has not. The education, leadership, parental involvement, cleanliness all need work.

When I went to Malvern in second grade I didn't really like it. Sure it's a big school but that doesn't matter. They didn't let us talk at lunch if we did we had to owe resess.The teacher's in second grade were most of the time mean.

Malvern has made a 360 degree turn with the new Principle and I have seen many changes in their students as a result. Malvern students are mostly transients meaning their zone spans many apartment complexes so children come and go often. The teaching staff is incredible! We loved the smaller class size.

After spending two years at this school, we were thankful to move on. While we were blessed to have two great teachers, the parental participation at this school is extremely low, which makes coordinating activies/fundraisers, etc, very difficult. The majority of the staff are great to work with, but can only do so much on their own. This school is mainly zoned with apartment buildings, which results in a high turn over in attendance that changes weekly. We were not thrilled with this school and opportunities available.
