My son went to Mcnab Elementary for his whole elementary education except for one year. I thought it was the best public elem. school in the area. I felt my son was safe there and got a great education and social experience with people from all different racial and socioeconomic backgrounds.
Overall we are happy with the quality of teachers and the education our children have received while attending McNab Eleementary. The teachers have been fantastic and have made up for where the school is lacking in being balanced in their curriculum. We hope that with the new building and new leadership will come a new beginning.
The first thing that struck me when my first daughter started there (after attending private school for 3 years), was how respectful the students were when we were on campus. Made a huge impression on me.
Great school, not only are the teachers excellent but now that the school has been remodeled the sickness rate in my household cut in half.
I am thrilled with McNab Elementary! The new building has wonderful, clean, spacious classrooms and up-to-date equipment. The computer and art rooms are well equipped to provide top-notch learning environments. Security is not an issue with the installation of all new cameras through-out the campus. My kindergarten daughter loves her teacher and has learned more than I expected at this grade level. Looking back to the beginning of the school year, I am glad she began in the old building rather than the new because it reaffirmed to me that the school is top notch because of leadership and teachers - not the facility. The aids are excellent and know every child by name and who they should be dropped off / picked up by. The department needing additional work is the music program. I am saddened that our wonderful Principal is retiring and Assistant Principal is changing career tracks!
Throughout my daughter's first year at McNab Elementary the school staff have been very responsible and calling me back right away with updates regarding questions and requests that I may have. Her Kindergarten teacher is a wonderful person helping my daughter love her school and school work.
I have been very impressed with the safety at this school. I witnessed a potentially bad situation involving a non-custodial parent and it was handled professionally, proficiently, and without alarming or causing a disruption to the student body. Also, I'm impressed by the teachers' team approach to solving problems and coming up with strategies (as a team) to enrich the educational experience. Overall, the parents are very involved and form a support network for students, teachers, and each other.
The new school is finally built, partially. Of course the cleanliness is a nice change. Soap finally in the bathrooms! As for safety, they try..but because of all the confusion with the new school, I'm afraid they may loose a child. They need a better plan at pick up time. Overall I am glad the old school is gone. Now the just need to get that new playground made already without the sand!!!! Lets get them to use recycled tire pieces!
This is a wonderful neighborhood school. A terrific principal and awesome teachers!!
