What Parents Say
We are thrilled with our transfer to McClelland!
My student's teachers communicate great with us and are very helpful with his social/emotional needs.
Our child's teacher is incredibly well-informed about early childhood education. In addition, she goes above and beyond to make thoughtful educational choices tailored to each child.
My child is not bored in class, he is being challenged daily. He comes home excited to tell me what he is learning. I am extremely impressed with the social skills he's developing and his grasp of foreign language. Most importantly, when he comes home he tells me "school is awesome!
I feel my children are challenged--they are pushed to do hard things while being supported in those efforts. I like the collaborative efforts of the teachers to teach in a cross-curricular fashion. The class sizes are awesome!

These four core values were shaped and will reinforce the School’s mission and vision to promote character growth, a love of learning, and academic achievement. Additionally, the core values meld with the School’s five-year strategic plan and help guide how the School works and interacts.
