    My daughter attended McCoy for a few years and suffice it to say we had a number of issues with the staff a few teachers and the principal Mrs. Rink who actually reminds me of a predatory reptile. Though my daughter is incredibly intelligent and was bored in her normal classes (and thus acted out) they refused to move her to ACE then LEAP until she underwent evaluation for ADHD. Like many public schools the staff at McCoy just want children to fall into line and become good little productive worker bees content to churn out worksheet upon worksheet.

    GREAT elementary. We started our kids here and were sad to move. The principal is energetic and really motivates her teachers. The GT program is truly a GT program not just a name. I feel like my son got the best start to his school expereince by attending this school Sad to leave. (

    My 8 year daughter just completed her 3rd year at McCoy elementary. She has been in ACE (excelerated learning program) since kindergarten. She has attended her regular classes and received addtional class work to keep her motivated and involved. The teachers have managed to provide customized teaching for my daughter along with the other 15-20 kids she has attended each grade with. The school has an amazingly involved PTA and teacher base. I highly recommend it!

    I am a mother of six years old daughter. I have to say her teacher is great .All the staff are helpful. Teacher Quality is above.

    Great attention to detail by teachers and administrators. We are very pleased by the overall PTA involvement. The emphasis of blending classroom education with Field Trips provides for a good overall education.

    The LEAP program in this school is unique in the state in that it caters to children who are highly gifted. ACE ( in regular classrooms in other schoolsi n the district) caters to gifted children. The Principal at the school is relatively new quite young and seemingly inexperienced in dealing with children and parents. The school seems very performance driven and pressure to perform is very high - especially on the kids in LEAP. The PTA is very active and does a lot for the school. Emotional needs (often an issue for highly gifted kids) do not get the support they need and efforts instead are focused on documented performance. In short the LEAP program is by no means ideal and the change in principal has not helped the school.

    The LEAP program is uncomparable to any other elementary school. It is unique and the students are selected after very difficult tests tasks and interviews. I wish they had this program in a little sophisticated campus with little more comfort.

    Great school. My daughter is in the 1st grade LEAP program there and she loves it. She's thriving in the environment. The school has great school spirit.

    The LEAP G/T program at McCoy is extraordinary. The principal and the LEAP teachers are all excellent. My daughter is doing very well at McCoy. We are very happy with the challenging work she is doing.
