Gary And Bobbye Jack Minshew Elementary School 5

We moved from San Antonio to McKinney in July 2014. My first grader attends Minshew ES. We have had a fabulous experience. She happens to have Mr. Pryor as her teacher. He just won the award for MISD Elementary School teacher of the year. I had concerns about teacher placement for my daughter because she is a quirky GT kid. I emailed the GT coordinator for the district before we moved here in May 2014. She was very responsive and called me immediately. Then, she forwarded my email to the principal of Minshew ES and he personally called me also to assure me that they had a teacher who would be a wonderful placement for my daughter. I was amazed that they were so responsive when I didn't even live in McKinney yet. They cluster the GT kiddos with teachers who have extra training in this area. We are having a wonderful school year at Minshew!

Minshew had such an incredible staff, who truly care about their students. For the teachers and administration at Minshew it is not just about test scores, but giving students all of the tools they will need to be successful citizens. When you walk in the building you are immediately struck by how warmy and welcoming the staff is. The principals even stand in the foyer EVERY morning to greet students. I couldn't ask for a better school for my kids

Minshew is a great school with a great staff. I appreciate having my kids there. They enjoy their time at school meaning learning has been rephrased when transferred to kids at minshew. Mrs. Hartford is a great teacher inside out, her way cant be expressed in a word. I wish i had such a teacher when i attended school myself. The nurse mrs. Mcdonald is a great person too. I honestly cant find the words that could describe how appreciative i am to have this school and these teachers. Thank you minshew for being the dream school in reality.

Minshew is an amazing school with awesome teachers and nice office staff. We moved to here 1 years ago from the school, where my son (with disability) was treated badly, was unhappy and had nightmares. I don't have enough words to express how we are happy and lucky to have so wise and friendly teachers in Minshew. Due to their guidance, now my son is more self-confident and making remarkable achievement in learning process. He got new friends, feels happy and doesn't have nightmares anymore. THANK YOU MINSHEW !!!!

Great school. My daughter has learned so much and truly enjoys going to school everyday. My son is starting soon and he can't wait! Good teachers with a great principal! Don't listen to some reviews that are concerned about the 'diversification' in the is a great learning atmosphere that encourages the kids and parents alike to get involved and enjoy school!

I have 2 children that attend Minshew with one more to start in a few years. I have never posted an online review, but felt compelled to post one here because we love Minshew so much! Especially Mrs. Durrick. Both of my daughter's have had Ms. Durrick and she has a way with the kids like no other teacher I have ever seen!

I don't even know where to begin with this review.....because I promise Minshew is by far the BEST school in the whole world!!!! The principals are like nothing you have ever seen before;) I'm serious She is the most amazing person you have ever met. She loves and adores every one of her students in the school. I also have to say who is the BEST teacher and I will try to write this without crying....Mrs Hartford 1st grade is.....PERFECT!! There are so many things I could write about her here...but instead I will say...just hope and pray your child gets her. She is so connected and perfect and has such a special bond with each of her students!! As a mom we always want that perfect teacher and the one who will treat our child like their own, love them, have structure with them, and would do anything in the world for them.....well Mrs Hartford is that "One" teacher who has everything we wish for our children!! Thanks Minshew!! Sara Smith

Minshew is an awesome school as a whole. There are areas that need improvement. The office staff isn't nearly as nice or professional as it once was under the first principal. There used to be a sense of community in the school but that is no longer the case. There are definitley some staffing changes in the front office that have effected the school as a whole and not in a good way.
