    The school is really great. They teachers are great. I am now a freshmen at Logan Elm High School and when I was promoted to the 9th grade it made me think about all the wonderful teachers I wont have anymore. Mr. Brobst is a great principal. He has fun with the students and yet he is strict when necessary. If I could stay in the same building and have the same teachers every year it would be worth it. I love McDowell. McDowell is clean and in very good shape. I absolutely love it there and would recommend it to any middle schooler just moving to the district.
