My daughter attended MacDowell from kindegarten through the 6th grade. She graduated in June with a 3.0 GPA. The school does a great job in preparing the children for the future. The teachers are wonderful as well as the principal. They were trying to close this school and I was lucky they didn't. Good job MacDowell.

I attended MacDowell when I was in elementary school and now all my nieces, nephews and cousins attend the school and they love the school. They talk about MacDowell all the time and the teachers are really great. The principal is excellent and is really concerned about the welfare of the children. I would reccomend this school to anyone who is looking for a school. This is one of the best schools in Michigan. They reasly care about the children and it should be made known that this school is exactly what a school should be made up of.

This is an awesome school, much better than the suburban schools that my child attended in the past. I am extremely pleased with the instruction that my daughter is receiving. I am looking forward to my son enrolling in the fall.
