McCarthy-Towne School Reviews

I would say that the teachers I've had at McCarthy-Towne have been overall good. Since I am graduating this year (6th Grade) I'll have been going there for four years. My first teacher (3rd Grade) was very nice and welcoming, so was my second but in 5th grade my teacher was really mean and controlling. This year they are preparing us for Jr. High so we have two "main" teachers who are both really nice in their own ways. One thing I dislike about the school is the food, if you are considering sending your child her make sure to pack their lunch! Another is the fact that they don't really prepare you for the Jr. High in the sense that there is barely any homework. Overall a good school though.
