My son is a third generation student here and loves it. The teachers and all staff need to be commended for a job well done.

I have a child that has special needs and attends Mabscott Elementary. I have found that Mrs. Clay is very good in her perfession. When I lived in NC, I was told that my child would not read past a 1st grade level and if he did, it would be a slow progress. Since he has been at Mabscott, in the special education classes, he has grown so much. He is reading at his level and continues to progress. I think that any parent trying to find a school would be very pleased. I am very satisfied! I have another child going next year and hope the same outcome for his needs as well. Great Job Mabscott! Keep up the great work. L.Smith
