This is a great school. My daughter has a behavior problem and instead of them judging her or mistreating her, they are working with her daily with the invention program. She is not a easy child to deal with on a daily basis and I'm thankful that they are doing their best instead of moving her to another school. They care!

This school is the only Montessori-based school in Jackson. The teachers are concerned for their students. Unfortunately they have to overcome the principal, who says all the "right" things, but is a narcissistic control freak. Ten quality, Montessori trained teachers have quit since she took over. Too bad for McWillie. It really could be a game-changing school were it not for the principal.

McWillie has an amazing faculty, and most of the people at this school are really interested in helping kids. However, the administration is horrible. The principal is a nutjob, who yells at parents and berates everyone. I couldn't keep my daughter at McWillie after just a couple interactions with this woman. I'm really sad that we had to come to that decision, but I can't keep my child in a school with such shoddy leadership. Get someone else in there, JPS!

I can barely contain my enthusiasm for McWillie. This school has made me a true believer in the Montessori method. Students are engaged and working towards life-long cognitive development, in a way that I never thought possible in a public school. The teachers are among the most dedicated professionals that I have ever encountered: in just about every case, they will be able to tell you exactly what your child is doing, and where they are going on a developmental spectrum. This is truly what a wonderful elementary school should be!

My son has been in McWillie's Montessori program since he was in kindergarten. He's in third grade now. He has thrived at McWillie. The Open Doors program is wonderful too. Highly recommend.

Both my granddaughters - ages 3-almost-4 and 8, go to McWillie Elementary; they're in the Montessori Program there. It's a great school, and the program has been wonderful for them. They are actually happy to go to school to school every day and look forward to it, and summer vacation was much too long this year for the older one because she loves her school so much!
