    If my numbers are correct 20 percent of 380 children are in segregated classrooms. (76). At least some of those 20 percent who have special education placements could possibly be successful in general education if class sizes were smaller teachers had advanced training and skills Administrators opinions and philosophy were different. Parent Knowledge and expertise held more weight and proper use of accommodations mods and support were in place. Use of updated accommodations modifications and support in the general education classroom are commonly not used. Coordination between the special education and general education teachers doesn't happen most likely due to time constraints and limited knowledge about the IDEA ADA ... Children are moved from neighborhood schools to this school were the special education teachers work. Now K -6.

    We have had our son in this school for two years and he is doing very well in all facets of education. We toatally give credit to the staff and teachers at this school for him excelling. Thank you all. Our son also enjoys going to school (weird).

    We have been very fortunate because our experience at the school for our three children has been very satisfactory. The teachers have been dedicated and available despite larger classes and more responsibilities. With a lot of local families struggling the school has stepped up to help keep things as smooth as possible for the students. I know a lot of struggling parents who really appreciate it.

    wonderful staff. a little crowded for a school that's only k-3 (over 800 kids) also don't like the fact that they have no outdoor undercover area for recess then let kids just play in the rain. Very good communication with parents my daughter did well here.

    My daughter is in her second year at this school. Both her teachers have been unwilling to work with us regarding her poor skills at reading. I have made multiple attempts with both teachers. But as a parent it is clear I am on my own with my daughter!

    5 Stars I have a daughter in 2nd grade there and she loves everything about the school. We have lived in other school dist. and Mcbride has a lower student to teacher ratio than the others and I feel better qualified teachers.
