I am a student at Mullens Middle, and I love it. I am very happy with all of the things we do, and the extra things and field trips we take. We are an exemplemary school, and Mr. Bradford is very pleased. He loves to gloat. We always are stressed on how important WESTEST is, and we are getting a new one this year, so we are all about practicing. The newer one is supposed to be harder, because we do so well on the other. Our school is very small-190 kids. Let me remind you,that we are in the TOP 3 IN THE STATE!! The first and second places were preppier, and we still did good. 3RD is just exemplemary so we want blue ribbon! Mullens=great school, and I would say out of the other B-E-S-T-!

This is one of the most social schools I have seen in a long time. The teachers help the students fill safe. The kids get along great. When I come home from work my child says she can not wate for school to start back. If your child don't understand something the staff will make sure that they understand the process of it. MMS has a program where your child can his or her abality to play a insturment or by singing. The basketball teams are very talented childern.
