    Horrific. There is clearly a complete lack of leadership at this school. I don't blame the teachers--I lay the blame for this mess directly at the feet of the principal and the district. The kids have clearly had very low expectations set for them and they live down to them. These kids are being robbed of an education and it's a crying shame.

    This school is horrible!!! A lot of the staff are disrespectful. I work at a school outside of my residence district unfortunately so I know what should go on. My child had an awful experience at Mound. Mrs. Turner is an awful principal and only cares about her salary. Instead of taking time with my child and attending to his needs he was sent home almost every day and I had to hold him back a grade with fear that he did not learn what he should have. And the school looks like it needs to be tore down!! My child now goes to Fullerton and is an honor roll student and is very smart! They are on top of everything and attend to his every need!!! Im so glad that we are sending him to Fullerton now!!

    I worked at this school for 2 yrs it was the most horrible time every the other staff was very disrespectful to the students and very mean to the parents the they always took sides and never listen to the other childs side of the story if there was a fight I dont reccomend any parent sending there child here.

    I have been at Mound School for 13 years and my mother I just started volunteering 5 years ago. We didn't start volunteering in the school until Ms. Turner got here at Mound. The school was out of control and when she came to this school things started to change. We love Mound and we love Ms. Turner. Some of the teachers at Mound are wonderful.

    The principle and staff were great with the children caring and concerned with the children getting their education.

    i think the school is really bad and i hate that my child has to go there! I am looking into home schooling. Because when there's a problem the principal does nothing about it. They let other children take my childs lunch. And all the principal said was then don't pack your childs lunch. What an attitude to have coming from the principal! My child tries to play sick every day and cries when he has to go to that school! I see why the children are all rude and running around like wild animals they are very disrespectful to other parents and the teachers and Mrs. Stull (the principal) does absolutely nothing.
