This school has been a blessing for my child. She did not do well at her last school, but has blossomed and excelled at Mendenhall. The teachers are amazing and truly care about every student, and they offer plenty of extra activities. Furthermore, they focus on teaching students how to learn, rather than just teaching to a test or giving students facts to remember. The principal is very concerned and involved, and they do a great job of including everyone. More schools should follow their example.
This is not a good school. They focus on the lower students to the detriment of the smarter kids. Smart children deserve to be served just as much as ESL and lower level kids. This is also a very rough school with many discipline issues and problems with the kids after school. We are moving to get away from this school.
I do not recommend this school because they focus more on bilingual education rather than academics because most of the students are Hispanic. There is too much focus on discipline rather than encouraging the children. Test scores have gone done in average in the recent years. Many of my neighbors have sent their children to other schools, and so will I in the upcoming year.
I love this school. We have had 3 of our 4 children go thru Mendenhall, and they have all excelled in honor, pre-AP, and AP classes. The teachers are very loving, kind and interested in your children's education. No school is perfect....but Mendenhall is pretty close.
My own kids went to Mendenhall. The teachers invest themselves in the kids by building relationships and helping students succeed. Teachers tutor after school and Saturdays to see that kids soar academically. There would be more parent involvement, but many of our parents are employed.
This is the worst school that my children have ever attended. The parents are not kept informed as to what is going on w/the children, you find out everything last minute. My children will not be returning to this school in the fall.
