    "I checked out McDowell and decided not to send my child to this school. My decision was based on the following: 1.) the children conduct PE in a parking lot; 2.) the teachers seem to turnover a lot; 3.) they do not seem to invest in the school facilities, i.e., no science or math lab; 3.) no high level of parent involvement. For us, the class size seemed too small. I don't think it would prepare a child to learn to interact with different personality types or learn coping skills. Also, the school only went to 6th grade so we would have to find another school for our child to attend before going to high school. Overall, it did not seem like a good fit for our child."

    "This is my second experience with this school. My child was a previous student here. Although there have been many changes since our first child, we are happy that McDowell has continued with it's small class sizes and academic excellence. Having been here before, I know that when students leave McDowell for whatever the reason, they are more than prepared and most often end up in very high math, english, language, etc classes at other schools. As to the previous comments about it not being a family environment, I wholeheartedly disagree. McDowell's student body size makes that inevitable. For the money, you can't get a better education! We couldn't be happier here! If you considering McDowell, do yourself a favor and check it out."

    "Over the past year I have come to realize that this is not the same place we committed to in kindergarten. There is not the same kind of family atmosphere governing the school which made it the special place it once was. This appears to be due to the change in ownership and management of the school. Also beware that there are some very influencial parents who feel it is their perogative to dictate their childs grades. Hardly a fair and even situation to students who come by their grades honestly!"

    "Avoid this school at all costs. It has turned from a wonderful family environment that is rich in learning to a cold, hard business. It has been bought by a corporation, has a new director and alot of the staff have left. Changes abound and many of the families that have been there for years have left. Think twice before putting your child at this school!"
