We moved to the area just for the school and I think this was the best decision for my children 's education.We are very happy with teachers,principal leadership and parents involvement.
This is the best school in the county it is just like private school and my kid's love it.
This is still a good school, but I am concerned that it is slipping. I've noticed a decrease in the quality of some instruction and discipline of students. I'd like to see the school's management hold everyone, from teachers to students to cafeteria personnel more accountable. Even so, most at this school genuinely care about providing and getting a good education, I just hope they tighten up the bootstraps so it doesn't get worse.
Dont be a parent of a child that has special needs. They are not proactive in getting specialized testing and instruction.
Our kids have been going to McKitrick ever since the school first opened, 9 years ago. The parent involvement is extraordinary and the teachers are great and genuinely care about their students.
Fantastic school! PTA has great involement with the parents & teachers. I have had 2 teachers so far and loved them both. Very caring and just top of the line. Don't waste your money on private shool, this is the way to go. These teachers are the best. Not much help for students with ESE or learning disablities. They don't make that an easy process. This is truly a school for the average or gifted child. VP and Principal not eager to make special arrangements, only down fall. Otherwise this is a fantastic school!
Great school, don't be fooled by the below average per student spending as compared to the state. Most of this is because of high parent involvement mixed with the fact most of the kids come from Cheval which I am sure those above average income folks are helping out. This school finished at the top along with Mabry Elementary for the 2008 FCAT in the district.
Excellent school,Excellent parent/teacher involvement! My son & our family has enjoyed all his 6 years there.
Excellent parent and teacher involvement and top county test scores. Tangible sense of pride by both teachers and students with a real 'team' spirit. The principal was selected as Florida's 2007 National Distinguished Principal, given to the state's top elementary school principal.
Having moved from a private school from up North, my child attended McKitrick for 3 yrs. Wonderful teachers, faculty, & very strong PTA/Parent involvement. If your thinking of sending your child to a Private School - don't waste your money! McKitrick A++ teachers and such well mannered, Good, Decent Kids- You can't ask for more!
Excellent Parent involvment, very good school. Alittle tight not enough room.
It's the closest thing to private school you can get from a public school!
This was my children's first year in a public school. We were very overwhelmed by the overall size of the school at first, but surprised at the individual attention both of our children received. The music program is wonderful, every child has the opportunity to participate. There are many opportunities for parental involvement and several 'carnival' type activities for the family to participate in at the school. The faculty and administration are very 'visable' and easy to talk to if parents have concerns or questions. Overall, we are very happy with the experience at McKitrick, we feel that they took an interest in the education of each child individually.
McKitrick is a fantastic school. The dedication of the staff and parents make for a great learning environment for our kids. We can't say enough about it.
