    My daughter attend school at Harper McCaughan last year and she loved it. We had to move out of state or we would have stayed there just so all of my kids could have attended there. The teachers office staff principal everyone was so helpful and went above and beyond to do the best for their students and families. If you are moving to the area I would strongly suggest basing your housing decision on being in the Harper McCaughan attendance zone. There is no better place for a kid to begin and grow in their educational journey.

    I went to Harper McCaughan from kindergarden to fifth grade. I love that school. The teachers were always very understanding and if there was ever a problem they would do their best to make it better. My daughter started there today. We would not send her anywhere else! They have one door that is always open and that is at the front office. All of the teachers have keys to open doors because they automatically lock everytime the door closes. They call you if you child is absent. They truely care about the children and their familys.

    Our son has attended Harper McCaughan since Kindergarden and is now in his final year (5th grade). From the very beginning he has had caring and motivated guidance from teachers adminstrators and even school employees. The only regret is that he must move on after this year. It would be impossible to identify all of the wonderful people who have played a part in his transformation because everyone at this school is involved in one way or another. Quality academics cannot be provided without quality instructors. This school has both! The family atmosphere that exists allows interaction between students faculty and parents to flow seamlessly. Our heartfelt thanks to all for the time effort and instruction that you have given. Sherry and Ian Devlin.

    I have two daughters that attend Harper Mc Caughan and this school is simply fantastic! I love the way it is maintained by the staff. It is always clean and a pleasure to visit. The teachers are a superb group whom are well trained and truly enjoy teaching youngsters. The principal is strongly self motivated and appears to be deeply committed to making Harper Mc Caughan Elementary an excellent school. - F. Charbonnet
