The constancy in how they treat and discipline children is lacking. One child can get in trouble for one thing yet another child that committed to same offense will receive nothing. The counselor and head receptionist are extremely condescending when you try to ask questions and the principle is never around. The curriculum is the only thing going for them, even though I believe they hold the more talented students back with the same work as the average students. As a mother of two children, who are completely different, i can see that the school prefers the children who are more drone like, and don't challenge the ways of the school.
I have three grandchildren that attend at McCornack Elementary School. They take an interest in all three children. So, I know if they do that, they must do it to all the students. Always helpful when we have to discuss how to rectify any problems. They praise the kids when it's due. The have 'aha' program and give out their 'aha' notes when students are noticed for good deeds, or being well behaved. Very helpful school!
The programs at McCornack are great. They cover a lot of ground and my daughter loves it there. And she's progressing in leaps and bounds. They offer a wide variety of programs and they work them in a very kid friendly, age approprite manner. Parental involvement is higher than I've ever seen before at any other school and the wide range of parental experience and expertise in different areas adds substantially to the school's already wide ranging offerings.
