    We are new to this school district and my two younger daughters did not want to switch mid year but my step daughter did. She went to Mounds for a quarter of the year in 2010. She did well at first then her grades dropped to D's. I questioned her then emailed the teachers. I had awesome communication with four of five of her teachers. They got her back on track and kept me informed the whole way. By the end of the year she was back up to A's and B's. I was a teacher for five years and it is hard to contact every parent for every little thing. So when I brought up my issues they resolved them quickly. I am happy with this school so far and my younger two cant wait to start there this school year 2010-2011. Great job Mounds teachers.

    This school is very bias The principal does not listen to what concerns parents have. Instead of getting on to the children they send them to ISP where they can color read books etc. Does that sound like a punishment to you? Then they can't even control the children in the class rooms. Wow!!! Then they tell you that you child should be put on medication is that the answer for everything now? Where is the security? I could walk up there pick up a child and they don't even look at you ID Also there has been incdents were a 5 yr old yes i said 5 brought a screw driver and pliers to school. WOW the goverment really does run schools now!!!!!!

    Not happy with this school at all. No parent/teacher communication. The principal does not listen to parents concerns. Very opinionated and not open to change. No sports offered through the school for elementary. Safety is a concern there also.

    Mounds academic programs are nothing to be desired. The GATE program is lacking in that it is only an after-school activity - there is not real challenge for these students except not to get teased in class because they're 'learned'. I am very pleased with the music programs (both band and vocal); they constantly offer opportunities to see how our children have developed throughout the year. The PhyEd program is like no other! My kids get a real workout! I've heard some faculty complain about lack of parent involvement at the schools but I can't help but wonder if this is because volunteers are often stonewalled if they want to volunteer without going through the PTA. As with any small town politics are a driving force at Mounds. Most often this does not benefit our children. It should be noted that Mrs. Keller is a fantastic teacher!

    Mounds Public School teachers are among the best in the country. They provide an atmosphere that is inviting and relaxing. They are having problems with the superintendent at this time. It is my belief that Mounds School System could be among the best in the nation. I can only hope that the school can solve there problems they are having with him so that the school board can get back to the well-being of the students.
