I went to this school from k-4 grade and I loved every minute of it. All the teachers were so nice and understanding. They really inspired me and brought out the talent in me even though I was a very shy girl. The principal did always great us every morning with a worm heart and a beautiful smile. Even the janitor Mr. Harry how could i forget he'd never let me leave the school unhappy. He'd always make me smile before I left. Just goes to show that even the janitor was super nice. I only have the best memories of this school. Now I have a 5 year old little girl and I couldn't be more happy and confident to register her in this school.
At first I was a little apprenhensive about sending my child to McVey because we just moved into the area from Townsend. But I was pleasantly surprised! When you're at McVey your feel like your home. The teachers truly care about the students. The principal, vice, and staff took great care in knowing each child on his or her own level. The Principal always stood in the foyer and greeted the students in the morning and when they left. The vice principal stood at the outside door to greet them as well. I always felt save leaving my daughter in their care. The school spirit is always shown. She left McVey with the confidence and self esteem that she could do anything! McVey is a fantastic learning institution!
