This school lacks leadership. Teachers and staff are very unprofessional, lack knowledge and organization. Issues are not address but brushed under the rug. School doesn't offer field trips. Gym has been inoperable due to flooding. Take my advice find a better school for your child to attend.
All girls seem to be favored here, boys are ignored. Teachers will make mistakes on child's grade and not want to correct it or even acknowledge it. You may be informed if your child is receiving awards at the school or you may not be.
My son attended McCowan in its inaugural year, his 6th grade year and recently finished his 8th grade year. I was pleased with the rapport between the teachers and students. Students are respected by staff and not treated like inmates, which I've seen at other Desoto campuses. The Administration address issues in a very professional manner which as a parent I appreciated and respected. I believe this school has some of the most talented teachers in the district and overall I was pleased.
