McMullen-Booth is committed to CHARACTER!
We use character traits of Responsibility, Respect, Self-Motivation and Honesty to guide us in life and learning.
This laser focus helps each of us to strive to set the example for doing what is right across our campus, with everyone, every day
no matter what! Character filled actions teach life skills that empower students to be responsible for themselves and their actions,
to be respectful by being thoughtful of the rights and feelings of others, to give their best effort through self-motivation, and to be
honest with themselves and others by being truthful in their words and actions.
McMullen-Booth opened its doors in August of 1997. We currently instruct approximately 740 students in grades PreK-5th grade.
Our school mascot is the manatee.
