This is a good school and seems to have great teachers. I am concerned about the lack of science, social studies.vivid, and geography being taught. Last year the FCAT was on reading and writing so that was basically all our forth grader was taught. However, I believe this is a State mandated directive and not the fault of the teachers. I am concerned that our children are not receiving a well rounded education in all subjects. McRae is the better school in Keystone if you cant afford a private school.
As a parent and volunteer at the school, I see a tremendous amount of involvement from all faculty and teachers at the school. I have seen Mr. Dooley inside classrooms playing guitar with the students and the atmosphere is warm, friendly, and inviting. I could not ask for a better school for my child.
I love this school and so does my son. The teachers are wonderful! I went to school here as a child and its just the same as when I went. My son was on ritalin for ADHD at the beginning of KG and when I decided to take him off she helped me get him on track. The administration women are wonderful also. They have a gate all around the school that is locked once the first bell rings and unlocked just before the last bell for the security of the kids. There are always teachers or aids walking around campus checking things out. I love it!! It is such a wonderful school all around!! I can't wait for another school year to begin and neither can my son.
I love McRae. I have 3 children that attend school there. We have been there for 2 years and I would never want my kids to go anywhere else. They are very organized. I really like how my second grader has all of her homework in one day for the whole week so that way we can do it on the days we don't have anything else planned. You know by the time you do gymnastics, brownies, boy scouts, and then any sports you might do also it doesn't leave much time for homework. We enjoy this program and I wish every grade would do it that way. :)
I am very pleased with Mcrae elementary school and it's teacher's and staff. I have 3 Children who attend Mcrae, the student teacher ratio is very low compare to many other schools and the general imnvolvement with the children is outstanding.
My children's education is something very important to my husband and I. At this school, not only do they have a wonderful staff and great education but they are so helpful to answer any questions we may have. The school is very fun for both of my kids and myself. I am honored to take my kids to McRae and I love volunteering to help out the wonderful teachers.
