We transferred our daughter from a private school based on the reviews and tour of the school and interaction with faculty. This is our first year here and quite honestly, McNab is light years ahead of the private school we were needlessly paying. Everything is top notch here. The teachers are very dedicated and go above and beyond, PTA and parents overall are very involved in the school and welfare of the children, and the new principal seems very dynamic and energetic in wanting to take the school to the next level. We had to invest a considerable amount of time, energy, and resources in finding the right school. McNab is a hidden gem and absolutely worth moving to within its boundaries to attend. The winning combination of dedicated teachers, innovative leadership, and a strong PTA all make for a wholesome learning environment for the children.

McNab has very high standards for academic achievement with a very large parent involvement led by the largest PTA board in Broward County that has done an amazing job of funding and supplying all of the most modern technology and other essential tools to teach the children! This is done with very little burden on the parents.

This is my son's third year at McNab and I'm very disappointed in the way the administration responds to and handles the process of intervention. My child's first year was in first grade. It was then when we noticed his difficulties with reading. The school year ended without him being evaluated. They retained him instead. I sent requests in writing for him to be evaluated to the Principal at the time Mrs Straup. Still no evaluation, so I had it done privately which cost $1,000.00. The school still must evaluate him in order to place him. We are now in December, my son's THIRD year and he still hasn't been evaluated. I've been waiting for a child study since the beginning of this year. I would never recommend this school if your child is struggling in any way. If it was up to McNab, my son would get lost in the cracks. They seem to have no time for and overlook children who need a little more help than others. If it wasn't for me being so involved and teaching my son on my own, he wouldn't be doing this well. I think I'm going to take him out of McNab and put him in a school where the priorities are in order.

I am glad my child goes to this school. The school is recently "wireless" and has computers in every classroom. The parents involved in PTA are all very nice and helpful. I feel like our children are safe and happy here.

This is my daughter's third year at McNab Elementary. The building is new and very clean. The school is safe, the students are respectful, the teachers are excellent, the PTA is good, parents seem to be very involved, the principal is always available, very nice and caring. I am glad my child is part of this school.

It's only been 2 months since school has started and McNab Elementary has made big a tremendous difference in my kids learning. My fourth grader grades has come from D's & F's from Sanders Park to A's & B's. My kindergartener loves McNab he now has an urge to learning new things and doing things for the teacher. Teachers are magnificent, they hunger to teach the children their education, they care about their safety and their feelings. They are very concern teachers and they treat them as their own. McNab teacher-student ratio is perfect, unlike alot of the other schools. Parents are always involved and that make our children want to learn more and they make sure we participate some kind of way. McNab Elementary is the School for your Child/ren. Yahhhhh McNab

McNab Elementary is a wonderful school. We pulled our child out of a private school with 'supposedly' better academics and have not regretted that decision at all. Our son improved tremendously in all academic aspects after enrollment. The school has a low student to teacher ratio and a dedicated and vibrant staff. One area I would like to see improved is more arts education especially music however this is a minor point. I can honestly say that if all schools were run this way across the USA then we would not hear about an education crisis ever again.

My son loves McNab. The parent/teacher involment is incredible. The teachers get into alot of diffrent programs, earth day (planted a tree)saving the rain forest, unicef etc. The parents also get into it, Meet the Masters, Sunshine Math, Bingo Bash etc. The teachers are easy to talk to and look forward to having parents help the out, in the classroom or on field trips. It's a great school.

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.

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!
