McKamy is a fabulous middle school! I have been an involved parent for 3 years and have had nothing but exceptional experiences with teachers, coaches and administration. Given that McKamy has one of the largest enrollments in the district, I believe that the administration does an incredible job of keeping the students on task AND allowing for individual growth. One only needs to look at the incredible list of elective courses, extra cirricular activities, and programs offered for the gifted and talented students to see that McKamy is among the best! The teachers my children have experienced have been exceptional and very caring! My child is receiving an excellent education and is extremely well prepared for the next level of education. The parents I know with children who have gone through McKamy on to FMHS say that McKamy students are always among FlowerMound HS's most prepared students!
This school fails to teach to talented and gifted children. Rather then address problems they choose to give children in school suspension. They do not care to engage these children in on level learning. They prefer to teach down to these children and tell parents that they 'cannot teach to their child because that would leave the other students in the class behind.' That is a qoute from one of my child's teachers. They offer nothing for a person who thinks outside the box. They want to blame the child for their shortcomings rather then recognize the fact that they are cheating this child of an education. I have realized that I am going to have to pay for private school in order for my child to be taught in the manner they deserve. The administrators just don't care.
Im a 7th grader here, and i love it. The teachers are helpful and supportive, they keep everyone in line without being too harsh, the electives are wonderful, and my personal experiance being here is really wonderful. If i had a choice, i'd never leave the school.
This is a Great school. My daughter has been at McKamy for the past year and my oldest son spent two years at this school. The principal is awesome as well as the staff. The teachers are all dedicated and truly care about their students. I would highly recommend this school
Mckamy Middle School is a great school where students are suceeding every day. The teachers are nice and helpful to every student,parent, or other teacher.There are many extracurricular activities, including Athletics, which is sports, band, orchestra, theater arts, home economics,etc. The Leap program is amazing, as are the other AP classes. The teachers here know how to make their classes fun, but teach well also. The Principal here is very friendly and quite funny. McKamy is just a great school!
