I think this school is a 4 star but it still needs improvement in Math and Science as well as Reading. I also think that the minority rate as well as the lower economic level of many students makes this school a challenge to teach.
my son loved the school and was on honor roll every month they work with each child and help them anyway they need
DanMcCarty.....DanMcCarty is a wonderful school.Although we have ups and downs(what schoo doesnt)we come together as one......we have wonderful teachers to help us learn and plan are futures.I would like to become a doctor and my teachers encourage me to follow my dreams...Not many people can say.....I Love My School...

I think Dan Maccarty Is one of the best schools that my son has attended in St Lucie County. Good job and keep up the great work.

I think dan mccarthy is a great school, they help the kids to progress and build within them selves
For the past two years I have been pleased with my son's experience at Dan McCarty School. There are areas which could use some attention. Discipline issues at the school could be better handled. it seems that the overall attitude amongst teachers is to punish the masses rather than the few that cause the problems. I know that it is not alwsys cut and dry but it really shouldn't take half of the school year to figure it out. Praising those that are well behaved and offering incentives for good behavior might yield better results. Let the kids 'Get caught being good' and see what that does for student moral. Perhaps increased staff or even volunteers would be a benefit in the classrooms.
Last year was terrible and we encountered so many issues throughout the year and we almost did not allow our daughter to return. However, a new principal was assigned and we would give it a try. This year has been OUTSTANDING and students are happier and safer. Hats off to the new principal and teachers who seem to care not only about education, but also about the safety of our children. Not to mention the positive reinforcement and opportunties that are given to each child.
This has been a great experience for my child, her teachers have been very helpful in anything needed to ensure my child receives a great education. they need to work harder on parent participation.
This school has provided a top noch music education with an outstanding band and chorus. The teachers are committed to the students.
