    "TERRIBLE SCHOOL! I wish I would have had the resources to move from this school when My child was attending. He was BULLIED and harassed on a daily basis. My questions went unanswered and nothing was done to correct the situation. The principle is a poorly educated person with no real grasp of what it takes to deal with children, or people in general. My youngest is just at the age of enrollment now, and am happy to say that I will be teaching him from home. Former principle Ms. Bradsford was terrible at her job. I hope the new principle does a better job for the children but I am not going to stick around and find out. I pity anyone with a kind gentle child having to go to this place where they treated like animals. The child better adapts or be eaten alive!"

    "Overall I feel this school has made great improvements over this last year. It is only my second year with my children attending this school, but I have seen a lot of progress in my own children and thier studies. The kindergarten Teachers were very supportive last year. If there were any concerns the Teachers always brought them up to me. I feel that Most of the Teachers want to be there and are doing a well job teaching my kids. They offer orchestra for my oldest in 4th grade with the instrument on loan, The afterschool program has a great coordinator who always keeps open communication as well as my kids' teachers in the afterschool program. They work on homework there and provide socialization for my kids. There are a few things that need some attention; like some students behaviors while "going to the restroom" or "walking to the office" but that is on the parents who's children should know how to behave at those times. Teachers/ schools staff should be able to trust the students to behave accordingly walking on school grounds. Overall I have had experience in much worse elementary schools and this elementary school has improved a lot and is continuing to improve."

    "I do believe that it takes the parents' full and undivided attention on each one of their children, to make their child's education what it should be. "What you put in as a parent, is what you get out". I have three children that go to this school and let me say that the teachers there try their very best to bring the children up to speed with the states requirements. Munsey School has had their share of bad principals and such, but I do believe that they are on the right track to recovery, and for that I applaud them for their GREAT efforts. Keep up the good work MUNSEY."

    "The office staff has poor work ethic and it has been my personal experience with this school that they don't give much thought to concerned parents who want to be involved or care about their childs education. If it can be helped, do not send your child to this school."
