I like a lot the new Principal. He is every day outside on the car loop helping and monitoring the kids. I turn to him few times and he respond so fast, professional with care. Even just approach him outside he will pay attention if you need him for something. He is open to all of us. The school go down in rating, because may be us reflect of previous principal. Plus the school boundary changed... New families moving to the area us well. Important is how much they care and did they have time to work and help kids at home. I see a lot of factors that are out of school possibilities. My son graduating 5 grade there in gifted class. All this years had great teachers. I don't have any complain about the school staff too. The school is large, clean, have good library and computers equipment for kids. For public school I can't ask more. Now my girl will start Kindergarden there this August. I didn't even think about other option. She is familiar with the school by going to her brothers events and very excited to become McNAB student.

In the past few years since getting a new principal (Mr Schwartz) this school has tanked. The FL state grades were constantly an A, now they are dropping fast. We pulled our son out because it was getting worse each year. I like many other parents had bad experiences with the principal and the vice principal and the ESE coordinator. His teachers were OK mostly. We still have many friends with kids going to McNab, it's not gotten better since we pulled last year. Our son is now in a different school (still public) and it is like night and day. Better office staff, more caring environment and a great principal. It makes a huge difference!

My daughter has learned a lot from this school. All the teachers are involved and i have had NO problems. Very big on teaching the kids about bullying at such a young age as well. A+++ school!

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.
