    "Let me say while I do still find this an excellent school an influx and shifting of teachers has missed the mark. I am disappointed in the new drive for testing but I do know this isn't just the school it is our whole education system ever since No Child Left Behind was implemented I have seen a shift toward testing being the be all and end all. Next year it is due to get worse when TCAPS start counting as a grade. It is horrible that now we have a situation where the teachers are under so much pressure to get great test scores they can't properly teach. It's not the school it is the system. Both my boys teachers did a fine job this year with my youngests being excellent and oldests doing as well as could be expected under some unique circumstances. I really hope to see a shift away from No Child Left Behind and test driven results.. Also the shift in the difficulty of subjects is really bad, because of new testing standards previous star roll kids are getting frustrated because they are working harder only to get Honor roll."

    "I have two boys that attend McConnell at this time and while I can say that my oldest (5th grade) received good academic instruction from K-3 his 4th grade teachers were horrible, both academically and to him personally. His science and social studies teacher this year is equally bad. They treated him, and many others that aren't "pets", so unfairly that he went from liking to going to school to trying to avoid it. The kids are not enriched emotionally or socially and are only taught to the test. My youngest is in K and we are seriously considering moving schools even though we know his 1st grade teacher will be really good. Most of teachers seem to like children who sit quietly and fit into their "ideal child" boxes. The school does encourage parental involvement, but doesn't seem to appriciate it."

    "They actually do have an Art Program now. I love it here. This is my daughter's first year of school and we are very pleased she is making the most important start to her life at McConnell Elementary. There is alot of involvement from the parents and it is wonderful to be apart of that!"

    "This is a school where volunteer hours don't have to be required. Most parents want to be involved in the education of their child. The teachers are interested in the well being of the children and work with the parents to achieve success."
