    Christa McAuliffe School is an awesome school. The teachers are very caring polite educated and serious about not only providing students with the knowledge they will need to succeed they are also concerned with helping students to become good citizens as well. The principal is involved and always makes sure all staff is knowledgeable about new agendas. I'm proud to have a granddaughter attend this school.

    This has been a great school for all our 3 childern two of which are still there (grades K and 2). The teachers have been so genuine and involved with the kids that it's renewed my faith in public educators and public education in general. We considered Catholic school as I am a product of that system and know it well but our experience here has convinced me that we couldn't do better!

    This school is amazing! We offer choir chess club drama club and art club on a weekly/monthly basis. The staff are exceptional - high quality teachers all around who truly care about what is best for their students. I have taught her for 3+ years now and have been so impressed with the wonderful students that have come into my classroom. I personally make a sincere effort to keep up communication with parents and to also remain academically focused positive and flexible. I am priviledged to work at the highest performing school in the school district. Go McAuliffe!

    This is our first year at McAuliffe and our first experience with a public school. Our daughter is in 2nd Grade and with exception of the candy incentives we could not be happier! Her teacher is enthusiastic and a true lifelong learning advocate who seamlessly and effectively relates the subject of the class with other subjects creating a curriculum that is at once exciting informative and meaningful to everyday living. From art to p.e. to appropriately planned field trips this teacher is a model of excellence and we feel blessed to send our child to her for 6 hours a day. My only hope is that we should be so lucky in her classes as she continues at this school!

    The school is the best in the school district. The teachers are great but all my children had a hard time adjusting in 3rd grade. The teachers in third grade can be a little demanding. I realize they are trying to get the kids to become self starters. I just wish the transition was a little easier.

    I have to say this is one of the best schools that I have seen or been to. The teachers and staff are very helpful with the education for my child

    This is the first person in my family to go to a public school. Everyone has always gone to private schools. I am very impressed. Mr. Sullivan the principal is always available to talk with parents he interacts with the students. There are a lot of extra activities for the students to join drama chess club art club etc.

    Over all this is a very good school my oldest child has been attending this school for three years now. They really need to focus on resources for the children that struggeling I feel they are not putting fourth the effort to help these students. Follow up with parents seems to be another issue....

    My Daughter is a 5th grader she has been @ McAuliffe(S.Crista) since Kindergarden. We have been so lucky to have this school around! We moved here from O.County. We Just lucked out. When my Daughter was only 2. I had no idea of the schools out here. I have been room mother for the 1st to 4th grade. I have worked with some awesome teachers! Also I have been Choir mom for 2 years. Our Choir directors have worked ever so hard on it. But it is still fun for our kids. They sometimes will be tough but the kids still sound great and have fun.

    Our two children a boy and a gril now 15 and 14 attended McAuliffe K-6th grade. This is wonderful school and we wish they could have gone to this there K-12th grade.The teachers are the best and my children are better students and human beings for having been there. My 5 year old will start there next year and we are looking forward to another great 5 years.We wouldnt trust him to any other than McAuliffe teachers! Special thanks to L.P & C.C. The Mirabella's
