Amazing school with a gifted staff and principal. The students are bright and attention is given to each child based on abilities. As a volunteer I was able to see many things first hand and could not have been more proud of the kids and staff of this school. We were sad when our daughter had to move on to the 7th grade. It is truly a gift for your children.

We enrolled in this school, after moving up here. It was the start of the second trimester. My son was recently identified as a special needs child and i feel the teachers have worked with him, and gotten him the help that he needed. The principal is always available to talk about my concerns. I feel that the people my son comes in contact with during the day are there for him, and that they have been willing to work in concert with me, in helping my son improve this year. We have had a very rocky school experience in the past, but this school jumped right in and showed us that there are still some really terrific schools and teachers out there. Thank you, Mullenix Ridge!

I have had a wonderful experience with this school. I have two sons that have attended Mullenix for three years now. The school is beautiful, the staff helpful, the teachers caring, and there are always lots of parents volunteering every day. It makes it a great educational experience.

My children are open enrolled at Mullenix Ridge and I feel that they receive the highest level of education possible. The principal is knowledgeable and has a strong relationship with the students. The teaching staff is professional, committed and truly cares about the individual child. We are blessed to be a part of the Mullenix family!

We have been pleased with Mullenix since we first signed our daughter up 3 years ago. The staff is always warm and friendly and the quality of education has been excellent. Our children have truly learned a lot at Mullenix!

The level of parent involvement at this school is exceptional. Parents and the PTA are very active and play a large part in the success of this schoool. My children enjoy going to school here. For the most part, I have been extremely happy with the teachers and staff.

We have been so pleased with the quality of education and educators at Mullenix Ridge elementary school. There is heavy parental involvement thru volunteering in the classrooms, PTA functions, and other school related activities. The new principal has stepped into her new position with style and grace. She has even been known to be out interacting with the kids during recess! I wouldn't want my child in any other elementary school in the South Kitsap district. Mullenix Ridge is truly the best!

We transfered to M.R. from another school and we have been extremely happy with our decission. We feel like M.R. is about the kids. The technology is wonderful, staff is friendly and helpful and children are rewarded for what they have to offer over how smart they are. We have three children attending and are very happy.

It has been a nightmare with this school, I have had no contact from the principal when I called the school to talk about an issue regarding me child, I never received a call back. I had my son on open enrollment in another school and kick myself for taking him out and putting him in Mullenix, he is an A- student but hates to go to school since he has to go here. I will home school him next year if he doesn't get the open enrollment we are hoping for.

Mullenix Ridge staff really care about their kids and have high expectations for learning. The Gates School Grant and technology fundraisers have provided many opportunities for kids to use technology in everyday classwork. It is an excellent school!

Mullenix is an awesome school. You can tell that the staff really love their jobs. It is clean, orderly, and still fun. We have been at Mullenix for four years. We were at a different school last year, we missed Mullenix so much that we applied for open enrollment and plan to never leave again! This school gets an A+ on its report card! The staff are very friendly and handle matters quickly. There is a very productive PTA here. I could go on and on about how great this school is!

The MSP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Washington. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
