12 Parent Reviews for Margaret Mead Elementary School

School facilities could be updated - classrooms feel overcrowded. My observation about school leadership is that the principal does not seem engaged. Some teachers seem overwhelmed. Staff turnover is high. Would be nice to see spelling bee, talent show, etc. School is positioned with easy access ...  Read more

Fantastic school that really values the kids' education over everything else. We love the small class sizes, accessiblity of teachers and the wonderful principal. All the staff there are a joy to work with and the PTO organizes frequent, fun and well attended events for the kids (and parents!). If you ...  Read more

I have 2 children in this school & this is the end of their 1st & only year @ this school. My son's teacher (3rd grade) has been outstanding. Quite often, he is excited to tell me things he learned that day. My daughter is in the 2nd grade & the whole year has had a substitute because her actual teacher ...  Read more

I have two children at Mead and we have had good experiences. Our school keeps the best interest of the children at the forefront. The staff and principal cares about the children. The school is older (built in 1979) and operating over-capacity. This can lead to limitations on offerings due to lack ...  Read more

It being a public school there are issues with Christmas, ...  Read more

Yuck. We were at this school for five years before escaping to private school. One homework assignment in 2nd grade was "draw a picture of a feeling". ??? What a complete waste of time. My other student's 1st grade class had "alcohol awareness week", which seemed way over the top for a 1st-grader. They ...  Read more

As a parent of Kindergartner, I have to say we've had nothing but a first rate experience. My son loves going to school and his reading and math skills have taken off - we're excited at his progress!

Two of our children have attended this school. The past principal has been extremely difficult to work with for our special needs child. Initially, the school under her direction took over a year to complete an IEP for our child who had a diagnosis.The long-time principal refused to accept the diagnosis, ...  Read more

The school is good when the teachers and principal are good. It is also bad when good teachers leave. Too bad there is not better retention of good / great teachers over the long haul at this school.

I have had all three children attend Margaret Mead and have been pleased with the school and volunteers. I have had reservations about two of the teachers who are no longer there. That may tell you enough. I enjoy the staff and admire the principal for the outstanding job she has done. I only wish ...  Read more
