I was not very impressed with this school sadly. My child's preschool teachers were not very pleasant, and did not treat the children equally. walking through the halls I would witness teachers being extremely ride to their students. I feel that it is the teacher's job to make the students feel safe and comfortable. I can say that any time I had to drop something off at the office, the staff there were wonderful! All in all, this school could definitely make improvements within the staff!

McCaw ES has wonderful teachers and staff and it's a shame they have such a poor principal who really doesn't care about the true well being of the students, teachers or staff. She is more worried about 'how she looks' and 'what makes her look good' as a principal. With the moral so low with the staff, the teachers still focus on doing their job and making education a priority with their students. The PTA is great too and works hard to get more parents involved with the school. The best thing that could happen is for the principal to be reassigned and for the school district to bring in a principal who will genuinely put the students and teachers first.

When I 1st moved to the area back in '07, and this school did what the previous school didn't: they saw the true potential in my son, something I had been "Arguing" with Hummel for 2 yrs, this school didn't see a need or a reason to keep him in the special needs class. Once being in a 1st grade class with kids more like himself, he went up 2 reading levels! This school truly cares about the students. With every grade since, I have been able to volunteer weekly & each teacher has not only more than welcomed the help, but you also get a lot of "inside scoop" what's going on in the class. I wish more parents would volunteer like this so that it's more than just an institution. I enjoy the fact that everyone is friendly, principle is approachable, the festivities that are offered, different events like Kite Day or Field Day, Fairy Tale Ball....It's elementary school and the school hasn't forgotten that, the kids attending are young, so things can't be all "stuffy." My son is almost done with 4th & I like the school enough that even during this economy (losing a house & unable to find work for 3 yrs), I did everything I could to keep him there.

I love Jackie and all her staff here at Gordon McCaw. My children and I have recently bought a home in this area just so that my boys would attend this school all through out their elementary years. We feel right at home here and look forward to the following years to come, as long as Mrs. Walker is here with us.

this school needs a lot of work, both in the class rooms and with the staff. i have found Mrs. walker to be very unsatisfactory, and to worried with getting ahead in her job to care about the parents and students cares or problems.

This school is more than 50 years old...they have started construction on a brand new building. The teachers and staff in this school go beyond the call of duty. Many have taught the parents of students who attend now. My two boys started as kindergardeners and now are 3rd and 4th graders. The school is very diverse in it's student population. There are many extra activies for the students to enjoy including 'desert trackers', annual talent show, student council. They offer before and after school care through the City of Henderson, my boys go to the after school session. The staff helps with homework, play board games, do crafts and really interact with the students. Most days I have to wait for the boys because they don't want to leave! Don't let the look of the old building hold you back....it's what is inside that makes this school extraordinary!
