This is our first year at Eddins Elementary and we have been pleased with the teachers, curriculum, parent involvement and activities. Our daughter loves school and Eddins has been a great start to her education.

I remember when parent involvement was high. The past three years it has dropped dramatically. I remember walking onto the campus and seeing the children's and teachers smiling faces, that has dramatically dropped the last thee years. I am fixing to buy a new house out of this school zone to get into a better school, where education is important, not a place where the principal is scared to rock the boat and make a parent or student not like her. It is a sad day for MISD, when the boss's boss can't make necessary changes. I guess once a wildcat does not always mean always a wildcat. I hope my house sells, and I hope they don't have elementary age children. Sad face.

This past year was my son's first year at Eddins (1st grade) and we have been tremendously impressed with the school from top to bottom. The teachers, the principal, the office staff, the parent community...have all been top notch. Communication between staff and parents is amazing, and they do a great job incorporating 'life principles' (Rachel's Challenge, Leadership Habits, etc) into the kids daily routine. Parent involvement is very high and there are countless ways to get involved in and outside of the classroom. Expectations are high, but there is lots of support to be sure each child reaches their full potential. The kids LOVE their school and it shows. My son can't wait for the new school year so he can be back learning with his school family. And I'm excited that our next two future Wildcats will get to experience the amazing learning environment that is Eddins!

Of the three McKinney elementary schools my children have attended this one is the best! Our experiences at Wolford and Glen Oaks (both highly rated) cannot be compared to our experience with Eddins. I have also substituted in at least ten other McKinney elementary schools so I know what is out there. Thank you to the dedicated and caring staff at Eddins for promoting such a positive learning environment for all students!

My child was bullied by a former friend to the point that she was crying before school every morning. This former friend even went as far as to pay some kids to ignore my daughter. We spoke with the teacher multiple times as well as the counselor, but nothing was ever done. In fact the teacher made fun of her after one report. Ridiculous!

C.T. Eddins is a really great school. It is well rounded in the curriculum, activities, and values it teaches.They have a really positive attitude in every aspect of leadership. I am so thankful that our daughter began kindergarten here. She is eager to go to school every single day. My only suggestions would be they have a few less money soliciting activities - seems there is something every week; luckily they are mostly voluntary.

I have to say that CT Eddins is such a wonderful school. My daughter is in 2nd grade now and has attended Eddins since she was in kindergarten. The staff is nothing short of amazing! The principal is awesome. Being a part of the Wildcat family is such a blessing. I am so thankful that we are lucky enough to be part of such an outstanding group of students. They are a Blue Ribbon school with is a national honor and their TAKS scores are through the roof. If you are looking for the best place for your children, CT Eddins is the place to be!

The staff are amazing, they do everything that they can to get the kids at the right level. But because Texas makes them do TAKS it is hard to get all the subjects in. But they have been named a Blue Ribbion School, which means they are one of a few schools in MISD that have received that name. I would tell an parent that this is one of the best schools to be at.

I love CT Eddins and think the staff is amazing. My daughter is in the 2nd grade and we have been so impressed with her education to this point. I would recommend this school to any parent moving to the area.

I love this school! My daughter has thrived since she moved to Eddins from Green Elem. in Allen. She struggled with reading since 1st grade and has improved greatly since we moved here. She did 100% on Reading TAKS test this spring. Thanks MCKinney ISD for taking the time to care!!

This school is not a real world school in terms of diversity and expectations. While the teachers are nice, the focus is strictly on TAKS and their results. The homework lacks enrichment for the high achieving children and is loaded with TAKS practice sheets. If your child is high achieving they will spend much of their day tutoring other children or spending time on AR. The PTA is in a constant fund raising mode, which was understandable when they were a new school, but Eddins is established and has way too many fundraisers.

Warm teaching staff, a close knit group of teachers that tend to be laid back, but highly professional and approachable. Extremely high parent involvement, often in the classroom of the child.

Having personal experience with three schools in MISD, this one is of the best we've been involved with. With regards to opportunities and quality education, Eddins has more to offer. However, as with the other schools in MISD, they are driven by testing and the students are forced to experience a high level of stress at a very early age.

The principal seems more concerned with political correctness than education as discipline is a joke. There are some very good, very concerned teachers here, but they're forced to train kids to take the TAKS test instead of educate them and teach them how to learn and love learning. It's definately a state and administration problem with the over emphazised TAKS test. Texas education is doomed - I'd advise sending your kids to boarding school out of state or moving.
