I am not sure what Zionist movement the parent below me is referring to, but as for the education children receive as McDonald I feel that this is a great school. If you are not happy at the school your child is zoned to attend then the best thing you can do is leave or home school (so glad you chose to leave). The largest issue with any school is parents lack of interest in the child's education and their quick jump on the teachers. If your child is not doing well then maybe you need to step up and help rather than give them excuses such as it is the schools fault. That is classic scapegoating. Is this school perfect...absolutely not. I for one have never been given "viruses or bacteria" Ludicrous! And the majority of parents would want lock down if a man had attempted to enter the building threatening harm. Calm down and cast a spell or whatever you chose to do.

I had to take my children out of this school because they were exposing my children to viruses and bacteria and doing lock-downs refusing parents access to their children. My children were bullied on the 1 and a half hour bus rides home and one lost his front teeth with the principal not doing anything about a bully in his class. The kids are mostly dumbed down with Zionist propoganda and that is generally the norm in the state-run indoctrination centers. Definitely not up to any standards. Teachers are nice yes I agree, but they are not allowed to choose curriculum. In addition, they would run medical tests, hearing, dental, vision and injection clinics for the flu shot which I am vehemently against.

I love McDonald School because they have wonderful teachers that really care about their students. And they keep the parents up to date on how their children are doing in all of the academic studies.

I think McDonald School is great. My kids have been going for 5 years now. The staff and teachers are wonderful. They care about each student and they do not push religion to anyone. They care about the development of each child.

I am a student at McDonald and I am so glad to live in this community. Next year will be my 8th grade year and there is no better place for it to be. Mrs. Donna challenges us to be a better person in all ways. The education there is great and as her first year she has improved the educational goal. The religion is not forced but accepted by us students. We realize that as a Christian-based school that not all people are the same religion wise. So if you think that your child is going to be forced to follow our religion you are wrong. A school is not meant to be this awful place where you are forced to believe something you don't think is true. I want to think all the teachers who have worked so hard to help us be a better person!

I have been a student/parent/teacher at McDonald School for most of my life. I am thankful to be involved in a school that supports great morals, character, and academics. We welcome parent volunteers and parent involvement in our small school. I appreciate having the opportunity to teach in a school that has such a caring staff, teachers, and principal.

It's quite lacking in choices. They push religion. It's very cliquey, to the point that you really need to be kin to a teacher or coach to excel at this school. If you don't buckle at their whim, you will be ostracized.

We just moved here from Oregon and the schools there are very lax (so many kids I suppose). My kids are excelling at McDonald school. The office staff and teachers are wonderful. They don't tolerate much...I like that! My kids are challenged academically every day. God Bless them for the outstanding job they do.
