    We have had two children at this school for the last two years. We have had experience with four other schools and this is by far the very best! We absolutely love the administration and staff - everyone is amazingly friendly caring and fair. The principal really deserves kudos for what a great job she does - she actually cares about the students!!! Our children have never been happier and we have seen tremendous improvements in their attitude towards school - for example they look forward to going every morning we have NO problems with them doing their homework and they havenothing bad to say about anyone ther. It's a wonderful school and we are so happy to have found it.

    We are so happy to be back at Nate Mack! We made the mistake of going to Coral Academy of Science last year. It was a terrible decision. My kids are so much happier at Nate Mack. We love the teachers the staff the parent involvement and all the activities it's like going back home!

The principal is responsible for this schools greatness. She is wonderful and should be honored. All schools should follow Nate Mack footsteps. I love this school. And I know every student and parent at this school loves it too!!

    I have two children at Nate Mack. The principal Nancy Heavey is amazing. She works so hard to make this the best school possible. She knows 90% of the students and parents by name. There is an open door policy that allows parents to feel welcome at any time. The teachers work together as a team in each grade level. This works extremely well. Great great great school!!!

    5 stars -- best 3rd grade ever

    This school is the most unfogetable experience and was the best school I have ever attended. I was there the whole K-5 so I would know. The quality of acedemic programs was excellent. THere was never one time you could ask the wonderful art teacher if you could have an art material and she would say she didn't have it. The availability of music art sports and other extracurricular activities was great. There was not one club that wasn't avaliable. I had the most attentive music teacher ever and I was so sad to leave him. The level of parent involvement was great too. 'The school offers a variety of opportunities for parent participation such as school events classroom projects and schoolwide committees.' Confrences cold be made easily. THis was the greatest school and I was so heart broken to leave it.
