    My daughter transferred from Halecrest Elementary to Meuller this school year and I can not be more happy and satisfied. Her third grade teacher Mrs. Saflar is absolutely Amazing Caring Devoted and Involved. She has helped my daughter become more confident in her academic abilities. Her door is always open for parents... She exemplifies the greatest qualities a teacher can ever offer. Staff is just as Amazing and Caring. Meuller Charter is outstanding and if you decide to take your child to this school you will be more than satisfied.

    Staff is very caring. Teachers really challenge students that need to be challenged. This school feels like a big family. Everyone knows everyone and the staff really takes the time to know your student and family. They have had a few thugs tag the school and they are very prompt and getting it removed. Overall no complaints.

    I don't recommend this schoo; for anyone who has a child with a learning disability . They are to wrapped up on the Kids who can give them the high scores. I left for about 4 yrs and left my child with my mother(spanish speaker) and come to find out they rather pass him to the other grade to avoid giving services.He was promoted to jr high and could not read . Muller refuse to give him services They just kept passing him. Even knowing he had SPECIAL ED in his previous school they refuse to give it to him. He was cheates of an education

    This school may seem to care about there students but in fact couldn't care less about them. You would think if a student with any kind of learning disablity came to that school or any school they would at least pay alittle attention to that student. Instead of being sooo busy trying to get the highest test scores. Yeah they got good test scores but what about teaching? Is it to much to ask for when we ask to teach our kids? Instead they don't give a ____ they just say "He or She is just lazy and just doesn't want to learn!!" WHAT IS THAT ALL ABOUT!! As far as I'm concerned Muller Elementry gives teachers a bad name. As far as laying them off I think Mullers teachers should be FIRST on the list!! Discrimination should never be o.k. EVER!! At muller there is too much of that going on. I just thought everybody should know the truth.!

    Mueller has been a great school for my son who is currently a 1st grade student. He is on a multi-age class with 2nd graders and has a great teacher. At first I was not so sure that multi-age would work for my son but after eight months of seing his academic growth I am fascinated that he is in a multi-age class! His teachers have been great and staff in general is very supportive. I also like the Monday Assemblies and the University names given to the different multi-age classrooms...One thing this school is missing for it to be perfect in my opinion is the 50-50 English/Spanish program. Keep up the good work Mueller staff!

    My child attends Mueller Charter School and I love this school. I have nothing but great things to say about Dr. Riley and Mrs. Deluca. They have always provided great support. The teachers that my daughter has been placed with over the years have also been very supportive. Good Job Mueller!!!

    My child has attend this school for 3yrs. and at the begining the Principle and staff were so dedicated to the children. This year we the parents dont know whats going on we ask and no answer! My childs grades are not that good this year so I asked for tutoring for my child and others that are in need or any help the teacher is not willing to tutor and the only solution she and the principle came up with is a program on the computer! I can't beleive that they think a robot would be better then a human teacher!!!!!! And about the programs like (wheels) that the other comment say we dont have them any more and no answer from the school either. So no I would not recommend this school!

    I am not a parent of this school but I was invited to visit with a speaker to one of their staff meetings. I was so impressed with the staff the vice-prinicipal teachers aides that I had to post a comment. This is school is very successful because the Priniciple and Vice-Principle allow the teachers to choose the curriculum books etc. They are supported by the parents and the teachers looked very happy to be there. They salute their teachers by honoring them with lunches every other week and present guest speakers with supported fund raisers and ideas. My child attends a school where the teachers are working without a contract and we have lost many good teachers because they are not supported either by parents or the school board. I believe that to support your teachers you bring out the best in the children who are our next generation leaders.

    Wow! I have never seen a staff more dedicated to the needs of the students. My child has the opportunity to participate in very inovative programs. There's a dual-language program wheel (Art music and P.E.) an after-school English class an August Academy and even a multi-age or looping option. Mueller is more than a school it is the heart of our neighborhood. We are so lucky to have Mueller- I feel like my child is now ahead of the game.
