McEwen is small, but the teachers know the students personally and take an interest in the students. When they see a child struggling they offer extra help just to help the child, and often during their own time.


Posted May 18, 2011

I have a son that has gone to this school now for 5 y now. In 2nd we found out that he had a learning problem. And the teacher he had was mean and hateful to him. He was a little behind but not bad. In 3rd we found out he had ADHD. The teacher he had was great. In 2nd his reading lev was 1.4 now that he is in 4th it is 1.7. We had been fighting with this school from day 1 to get him help. And to this day we are still fighting. I have pulled him out and now looking at other schools becuse they will not help him they say they will but they wont.
