Some teachers here have wonderful management and great relationships with the students and parents but in general there is a large bully problem that doesn't stop. There are lots of activities for the families and students but most are held at early times not allowing for parents that work late to attend. When management issues occur in the classroom most teachers send the issue immediately to the office and referrals are given. As punishment field trips are taken away. There are some* really good teachers here, but for the most part I find it to be one of the worst schools my children have ever had* to attend.

McElwain is a beautiful school with committed and caring staff. Their dual language program is great.
