Wonderful Atmosphere! Not only is the staff is committed to engaging the students, but the parents are strongly encouraged to participate. I appreciate the many creative ways the teachers work with the children. The class size is appropriate, and I am comfortable with the level of security. I highly recommend this school!

Fantastic school overall. It's a big school, many students, but the size of the school and the way everyone handles it helps it give a small-town atmosphere. Everything is handled good to excellent in this school.

McKelvey School has fantastic teachers with an immense drive for the students to reach their greatest potential. They know no boundaries in terms of learning. They empower each and every child to know their capabilities. I love that school!

Mckelvey has been a great experience for my son. The teachers are supportive and engaged with the kids, and the music program is second to none! the principal and vice-principal are wonderful - fair, but they expect alot out of their kids... And they get it. They understand the value of molding our children through education, fun, and discipline. I have two babies now - and am very much looking forward to their mckelvey experience. I'm sure it will be as wonderful as it's been for my 5th grader as he leaves mckelvey, prepared to go onto the next challenges he'll face!
