Terrible. After hearing from my child that a knife had been taken into school for the second week in a row, I called the city to squash the rumor. The secretary was surprised by my call, "Didn't anyone tell you?" Two were brought into the school, but only one was considered dangerous, and no the did not call. I had to tell the principal that I wanted to know about such things in the future. What a wreck of a school.

This has been the worst school system I have had to deal with. Most of the staff don't even seem to like working with kids. The communication with parents is poor.

We LOVE Machen! We have had 3 of our 4 children graduate from here and are looking forward to #4 doing the same. The teachers and administrators are TOP NOTCH! We know they really care about all the students and families. We attended the Gingerbread house Family night and HAD.A.BLAST!!!

I am so impressed with Machen Elementary. It is truly a nurturing and loving environment for the students. The Principle, Ms. Thomas, provides encouragement, discipline, guidance and genuine care for her students. It is clearly evident that she loves her job. Her standards are also reflective with the faculty staff. The students have a great record for perfect attendence which is clearly indicative that they enjoy going to school at Machen. Great leadership and faculty staff educating our children. I am so impressed with this school!
