12 Parent Reviews for Mackeben Elementary School

Mackeben is a great school, very focused on academics, even in kindergarten. The only thing that makes me unhappy is that the K-2 graders only get 15 minutes to eat lunch, so my son can't finish more than a sandwich and comes home STARVING after school. If they would just give the kids 1/2 hour to ...  Read more

My child attended Kindergarten this year and I am happy about how much he has learned. We did work on some of the skills at home to reinforce them as I believe is very important. His reading and writing are great. Can't wait to see what first grade will bring!

This is my second child but the first through Mackeben. I can tell you that they do a great job with the students and parental concerns. My daughter could read by the time kindergarten was completed.

Disappointing in overall student assessments and inclusion of those who don't fit the 'one size' category. Teachers that we've worked with seem very apathetic about actually helping students instead of just teaching from rote.

My child has attended this school for K & 1. The two teachers have been excellent, and we couldn't be happier.

Teachers have narrow scope. Administration doesn't know how to effectively deal with parental concerns. Some children are being left far behind because of the one-size-fits-all teaching agenda. So many children with learning issues that are not being addressed. This school is awful!

I think this school has done a great job with my youngest daughter who is in kindergarten.

This is my oldest daughter's kindergarten year...and I am amazed at how wonderful this school is. Half way through the school year, she had already begun reading...on her own! Terrific teachers & staff!
