    The staff at this school is fantastic. By the zoning being awful the good kids as well as teachers are in a rough spot. I have been with MBES since 2009 and have have my two teens leave and watched my two little kids go there. After my teens left in 2011 the zoning changed adding more minorities and impoverished families. Add in the implementation of the COMMON CORE STANDARDS along with zoning integration of more impoverished demographics has brought this school down. The teachers do their best and the admin is great about making school fun. They are very limited. Parental involvement is a must to insure your child does well. There is little communication for parents. Don't' get me wrong. The teachers do their best but with the new common core curriculum they are now constantly testing. Teachers are teaching to the test because they don't have a choice. The kids who don't speak English as well and kids from un or under educated homes are mixed with the higher performing children thus taking time away and dumbing the smart ones down. I will miss this school but I'm jumping the titanic before it sinks.

    Our daughter has been going to MBES since kindergarten in 2009. We have loved this school since! It was our first school experience and has lived up to and exceeded our expectations. Every teacher our daughter has had has been great and the whole staff is awesome. My son started going to the pre-k program last school year for developmental delays. We are beyond thrilled and thankful for his teacher and aids. No complaints here!

    I am NOT impressed with the administration at this school; awful communication skills. Special needs children appeared to be simply babysat at this school. McKay Scholarship has been a blessing.

    We came to this school for Mrs. Fredrick.......and every year after I feel like we hit the Teacher Lotto! I cannot say enough about this school and the staff people are out there paying for a lesser quality education.

    Being a Military family you are never really sure of the schools your children will be going to my husband and I were overjoyed when our children started attending McMullen!

    PE is beyond great and they have it every day. The cafeteria has 2 pick nick tables outside to have lunch with your kids. The whole campus has a great layout.Everything is secure. The classrooms are very roomy and there is enough hallway room to comfortably volunteer. Great computer lab and great media room. Teachers and office staff are very friendly.

    I will change my kids of school next year for sure dealing with the staff was painful they are not helpful at all. The new principal lacks communication skills.

    This is an excellent school! The faculty and administrators care about the kids and treat them like their own. They very much involve the parents in the daily schedule for the students. This truly is the best elementary school around.

    I have two children enrolled at McMullen-Booth and I have been very pleased with all aspects of the school. The principal Mrs. Moore is wonderful and the staff is very dedicated and loving. The amount of parent involvement is tremendous and therefore many extra activities take place during the year. The one thing our family enjoyed the most was daily P.E. and recess. I didn't realize how many school were cutting outside time and it is so important for children to have a break. My children are thriving at McMullen-Booth Elementary.

    Although there is some teacher to teacher variability we have been very satisfied with McMullen Booth. Our 2 children have been there for 1 2 a3 and 4th grade. There is more emphasis that we would like on 'the basics' but our understanding is that most of this is mandated by federal law. The program for gifted children puts these kids in a different class one day per week and the kids work on a theme each year (space Greek History etc.). I think the theme aspect is a bit rigid but my kids seem to be fine with it. There is no gymnasium in the school -- the kids play in an outside courtyard with no shade. In this area a typical day is 90 degrees and 90+ percent humidity. There should be some shade or an indoor facility. Overall the school appears to be run well.

    The Principal and Administrators take an active role at McMullen-Booth. Most teachers seem to be truly interested in helping children to learn and succeed. Parents for the most part are quite involved in the classroom. The PTA is also very well organized and the school has many special events.
