Manassas Park Elementary is and excellent public school with caring teachers and front-desk staff. The vice-principal is highly responsive to parents needs. The principal is tops...very impressed by the may additional to the traditional schoolwork they suggest doing. The cafeteria has very healthy choices. My child went to Cougar elementary and it used to be great until the principal left and now. it is just ok. I was glad my child had moved to MPE.

This school is great! Most of the teachers are nice, the school is very clean and tidy, and they have many cool books to read. What makes this school unique are the solar panel, and the fact that this school is green to planet earth! This school has been the best i've been to.

Our daughter is now in fifth grade at MPES and we have been very happy with our experience at this school. All of the staff are kind, caring and dedicated to the kids and what they do. Our daughter has continued to thrive here and has enjoyed the additional activities and opportunities offered here. She especially has been enjoying the chance to learn how to play an instrument for the first time. This is the first year they have offered band for fifth graders and the whole things seems to be going so well. And everyone was so excited to play in the first every band concert. They offer alot of different after school activities all year long - from just for fun, to additional learning type clubs. The building is an older one, but we look forward to the new building and our next daughers move up to MPES.
