The faculty I've encountered are enthusiastic and child-focused. they are very willing to take extra time to help a child. Staff are supportive and work very hard to help kids adjust and not feel left out.

I'm a student at McDevitt, and it's one of the best schools ever. You learn so much while having fun with friends. You would have to be living under a rock if you ever said you didn't like it there. That place builds character in everyone.

The office staff is very rude and the teachers and administration staff are unwilling to make any extra effort to help children or parents.
