Best school we could ask for to start Kinder! My older son had been in a different school, and we had many problems with teachers, getting answers, and finally the administrators. At McGowen, I was worried for my middle son, since he is every bright, but I feared he might end up bored and restless, getting himself into trouble. No need for concen! Ms. Gimber has been the best teacher I've ever met, and she has been fantastic for my son! She keeps him engaged, and if he completes assignments early, she always finds ways for him to assist her, do extra work, etc. He feels valued & loves to go to her class every day. She has gone far above and beyond for us, including emails, calls, and sending photos! She even called one morning to remind me of an event because my son thought I'd forgotten! The office staff are always helpful & friendly, but WILL enforce policies (no ID, no Entrance! I'm ok with it!). They relay messages & help navigate new territory for parents just starting into the school process. And the school invites step-siblings into events (festival/dance), which means a lot to mixed families. Atmosphere is inviting, warm, educational, and comforting!

I have two kids at McGowen, and "exemplary" doesn't do the school justice! Attend one of the monthly "Maverick Fan Jam" assemblies, and the excitement is contagious. Teachers and administrative staff are energetic, compassionate, and extremely dedicated to giving our children a well-rounded and positive environment. The campus is beautiful and high-tech, and school spirit activities are common. We've had such a wonderful experience with involved teachers year after year!
