My son is now in 3rd grade, he started here in 1st grade as they didn't have full-day KG back then. I love it. The teachers are amazing. They really care and are very helpful. Its such a good school!

My daughter currently attend first grade and also first year at McVey, its academic curriculum is excellence, they makes students work hard and I expect my daughter to work hard as well. The teachers willing to help if needed, and they answer questions promptly, very appreciated. In the future, the whole school district might have full day kindergarten program, which has just been voted but no result yet, hope many people in East Meadow voted YES so my two younger daughters could attend.

As a family this McVey has been a wonderful experience. Our daughter loves the school, teacher and classmates. I always feel informed and Principal and Vice Principal are a great duo. This school offers a veriety of extra activities that other schools lack with special programs like music and art. One of the best school ratings for math and science in Long Island.

The only drawback is with Kindergarden, it should be longer. We had pre-k elsewhere longer and then to come to Elementary school and it is shorter just wasnt right. My son then had to make a very big adjustment to 1st grade being so many hours that he hated school and I had a very hard time with him all year. Pre-K was 4 hrs., Kindergarden was 2 1/2 and then 1st grade is 6 hrs. This needs to change for the future children to adjust better. I personally dont have any young ones left, but I feel for the new children and it should change to benefit everyone.
