    I am moving to get my child out of this school if that says anything. Some teachers/staff are very nice but unfortunately the less great ones are the ones my child has to be involved with. I would never recommend this school to anyone and if you are zoned for it try to find a way to transfer your child. I know it is not the worst school around but it is not the best either. It was an A rated school so maybe in the past it was better but the 2013 grade was a B so maybe there is a decline. These A B ratings are not everything just because they get a A or B rating academically does not mean the faculty involved with your child get an A B rating. I know from my experience though this is not a place you want your child. What happened to the teachers that really care about the kids and took time with them to promote a better and healthy education. Oh and you never meet or see the principal! You always see the vice principal but not the principal maybe there really isn't one hmmmm?

    I must admit that even though my child had a small behavioral problem this school dealt whit his issues in a very bad way. We had meetings after meetings; they knew that we are involve in our child s education and we did everything possibly to help him improve and indeed he did but as the end of year came around our child was being bullied not by one or two kids but 4. Luckily it wasn t in a physical way it was more verbally and this created our child to become frustrated all over again; acting violent throwing chairs papers turning desks upside down it was horrible; I do not agree with violence and our child knew this act was wrong. Between e-mails and the meetings we had with the faculty our child was still frustrated so now he has a record. Glad he won t be attending McCoy any more.

    My daughter attended McCoy after we moved here from NY. My daughter was in a gifted program in NY which I informed McCoy about when I registered her. I was told she would have to be re-tested here-they took close to 5 months to test her. I was able to transfer her to a A school. We are SO glad we did!

    Very crowded school staff seem to work very hard to accomidate large percentage of non-english speaking students but it seems rather unfair and hard for english speaking native students.
