I love this school! I appreciate the way the school has divided the students by the level of learning. The teachers are wonderful and do an excellent job of teaching and providing guidance in their classrooms. I have two children that attend school at McCarter and I recommend any parent looking for a good school to consider McCarter!

The staff at McCarter is always evaluating student progress and performance and making changes where needed. They focus a great deal of effort on academic performance, but they never leave out the fun school activities that make great childhood memories! Thanks McCarter Staff!!!

McCarter elementary is a fantastic school. They go above and beyond the call of duty for the kids. The teachers really do care, I feel that they believe in leaving no child behind. Tons of family nights and school activities.
