My child has been going to this school for the last 3 years, doing very well academically. Never received award for exceptional things, no encouraging awards. It really upsets me because other parents tell me their child do get awards. Kids need to be encouraged and recognized. Another parent also told me the same no award ever been given to her exceptionally talented child. I wish they do something about it.

All 3 of my children attend MHES and they have all have succeded there.The teachers and staff do a great job, they are caring and attentive, of course there is always one teacher in the bunch that is difficult , that can try our patience and forgiveness levels, but for the most part this is a great school. I think more schools would do better if the parents would volunteer more and get involved in their childrens lives. Teachers are not babysitters they are there to teach our children to learn and grow into productive citizens, that takes teachers, parents and children working TOGETHER. I applaude all the teachers, staff, parents and of course the kids that care enough to work hard everyday, They are the ones that make this one of the best, caring,encouraging and learning environments that my kids have experienced.

This is my son's 3rd year at Marumsco Hills, and it really exceeded my expectation. I am surprised with the quality of education and teachers (the teachers my son got) involvement. Few times issues happened with other kids bothering my son, and I had to communicate with the teacher to get it resolved. My son is going to 2nd grade this year and other people who have kids at private school get surprised with what he knows. Don't get me wrong, parents participation is extremely important no matter what school you send your child, there will be some or more issue. I really like the atmosphere. I checked so many private schools at PW county b/c we were planning to send our kids to private school (before I lost my job). Comparatively, the class size at Marumsco Hills is bigger and better. In general it is more than my expectation Parent

We are a military family and have always had higher learning type schooling. Unfortunately this school focuses so much on the non-English speaking students that the English speaking students are at a huge disadvantage-they are not challenged at all. I'd never pick this school willingly for my child to attend. It was more like daycare than school for my 3rd grader. There is a serious lack of professionalism as well, the front office has no tact & the teachers do not dress for teaching. They never even made a copy of my ID to have on file nor did they ever ask for it when I'd take my son out early. Just an awful experience overall-SEND YOUR CHILD ELSEWHERE!

My son went here from K-5 and I will say that the first three teachers he had were so willing to give up on him and only offered to hold him back. Well, being who I am I refused such action. They were quick to work against us and slow to work with us. The school does really need to upgrade their teachers who are willing to teach in a modern way as things have certainly changed in the last 20 years since I was in elementary. As time went on we fought our way through and "hold back" never came up again. I am so glad we are done with this school. If I had to do it all over again, this would not be my first choice of schools if .

Hidden jewel. Under estimated because of the high number of students entering not speaking english, this does NOT slow the class down (do the research). Amazing, smart, caring, superb staff. Principal knows her stuff and does what it takes to get the kids what they need.

I love Marumsco Hills Elementary because it is a school where a child can enter not speaking any English, and leave a few years later speaking fluent English, and knowing that his or her family was welcomed and loved as a part of the school family. Parents and children benefit from a staff that goes beyond the call of duty by tutoring students before and after school, providing extra clothing, and having caring teachers willing to rise before dawn and on weekends to take children on specialized field trips to provide content rich real-world experiences that students might otherwise not experience. The school also provides language and life skills classes for parents who speak English as a second language. After graduating from our school students (and their parents) still return to let us know how they are progressing through life.

Marumsco Hills is a safe, caring, nurturning place where all students can grow and learn. Our standards are high, our classrooms are fun and our staff are dedicated. Most importantly our students love to learn and bring joy to school every day. We are the best kept secret in Prince William County

All my 3 children attended Marumsco Hills Elementary. At Marumsco you will find a great program and a very caring staff. My son attended the Signed Program at Marumsco Hills and went on to attend the IB Programme in High School. If you want people to care and teach your children, Marumsco Hills is the place to be.

This school lacks the skills to teach our children at a level other schools in Virginia are teaching. My daughter transferred in first grade and was learning things at this school she already had learned in kindergarten. I have to do extra teaching with my child so she does not fall behind when we transfer to another school.
