    My daughter loves Mullen and has had wonderful teachers. She is considered a lifer at Mullen. She started in Kindergarten and is now in 5th grade. All of her teachers have been wonderful. The best gift a parent can have is a child that is happy to wake up and go to school to see her teachers and find out what they have to teach that day. She is in the Gifted Program and they have provided her the opportunities to continue to grow and learn at her level. It is a very diverse school and it provides wonderful programs for students at every level. The Principal cares a great deal about Mullen and maintaining its standards of learning. She encourages the students with positive reinforcement for instance last night my daughter told me that the principal told them that she felt very lucky to have the smartest kids in her school. She then told me "You know mom that made us all feel really good." Keep up the good work Mullen Staff You are the Best and much appreciated.

    Mullen Elementary is by far a great school! My daughter was in Mrs. DePollo's class last year (4th grade) and i wish everyday that she could teach 5th grade this year with my daughter in her class again. She went above and beyond for my kid offering to spend time with her after school and on weekends i could call her whenever i had a question about how my daughter was doing and she would always answer. Mrs. DePollo is by far the greatest teacher i've have ever met and she was the PERFECT match for my daughter who suffers from ADHD. Mullen is very lucky to have someone like her! )

    What I remember from Mullen E.S. was that there was ants in someone else's food. The luch staff didn't do anything about it! Also there was expired cheese sauce for nachos. I can't believe they make us eat that stuff!

    I think Mullen has some great activities for the students. My son is in the first grade so I really like the way his teacher organizes his work. However the biggest problem I have with the school is the rudeness of the prinicipal. She is not professional in the way she talks to the students. She seems unhappy with her job so its hard sometimes to attend events because you have to listen to her mean remarks towards the children before an event.

    I think Mullen is a great school. There are many excellent teachers working hard to educate our children.

    I liked this school and environment that these teachers provide to our son. They where exceptionally caring and supportive for him they support our son to great results and I have to say it high lighted comparing to that fact that we just moved to US last summer and our son just started to learn english and studying with that same language. Special thanks to ESOL teachers Mrs Bernal and Mrs McGray
