Weak and unprofessional leadership- a lot of favoritism- several children are way below academic standards therefore, the teacher teaches to the lowest dominator of the class resulting in the children who are ahead are kept back. The cafeteria food is horrible- found hair in some entrees- mold on bread once- huge turnover in teaching staff- principal is very condescending and prejudice and will pick on certain children due to ethnicity. Very tense and stressed out teachers that are the result in the way the leadership treats them.
The principal and staff disrespect children especially if you are not white- they accuse you of behavior issues and actions that you had nothing to do with - they do not listen to children or take their side - they do not know how to manage their classes or their selves and some take medications while in classroom
This school lacks in compassion and empathy- unless your parent works here you are out of luck- you will never get a role in any play, you will never get to do any type of unique tasks unless your parent works there.
Mr. Pope the principals is very condescending and treats children differently based on race and when the parents are not around- I have a recorded video my son took and I was shocked the way he spoke to my son- falsely accuse particular children of misbehaving - teachers let Mr. Pope run over them resulting in the entire team being unhappy and stressed out - children come home nervous and stressed = huge turnover here- all teachers are white- so obvious that Mr. Pope is prejudice look at what he hires all white- look at all the children in detention all non white students - the test scores from this school should speak for themselves - its the lowest in the district - I have brought these concerns and many more to the student services at BISD and they said what Oh Billie over there is a great principal and would take make concerns seriously.
I went to Mullendore from Kindergarten until 5th grade. I can honestly say that I absolutely loved this school. I had the most supportive teachers and they helped me get through a lot of things. I enjoyed all of the activities the school offered like dances and field day. I moved to Ohio after 5th grade, and my younger brothers now attend the elementary school here, and it's absolutely nothing like Mullendore. I feel bad for them because they'll never have the elementary experiences that I did. Mullendore is a fantastic school.
I chose to transfer my child to Mullendore, and couldn't be happeier! The leadership is amazing, and the teachers are top notch! Everything at the school is about the kids, and making their the most of their education and their childhood. So many of these teachers and staff go above and beyond to make sure that every child is involved. They have community support to help with school supplies, and the PTA is amazing! A wonderful group of parents/teachers all working together. I couldn't be happier with my choice, except I wish I had made it sooner!
You will like this school best if you are a mom who does not have to work. Kids of those moms who can PTA a volunteer a lot get to be in all the programs and get special attention. Kids not as lucky never get to sing or have bit talking parts or be so important.
