    "Every school has it pros and cons. McPherson Magnet has a lot of PROs. My child has been there since Kinder and is ready to graduate. There are quality teachers and a lot of them have been awarded Teacher of the Year. (Do they have some lemons?... Yes!) The PTSA and Education Foundation has worked tirelessly to update the school facility and technology (Is more needed?...Yes!). The parent volunteers are outstanding. I've heard over the years the District has hindered the school progress by not granting it money like other schools. However, McPherson has overcome through generous donations. Overall, it has been a Positive experience."

    "I agree with EVERY negative comment on this site. It is very unfortunate because it used to be an amazing school that made learning fun for ALL the kids."

    "It's not what you think. I had my child at this school since K-7. I felt the teachers also dumped all homework at the parents, wanted to take less responsibility in teaching. Not sure why they had the distinguish school award and in my opinion in lacked on it. I noticed teachers would pick favoritism students. All the teachers my child had thorough out the years have all been long gone. It made me wonder why? McPherson is not what it used to be the staff has changed. This school started focusing in kid s behavior nit picking about everything instead of educating them. My child is now very happy at the new school, likes all the Teachers. I must add that the new teachers have giving my child a new perspective on education that it can be fun learning. Mc Pherson teachers made my child feel like a failure. I knew then it was time for us to leave before my child hated school. Thanks a lot McPherson! Another thing that bother me is why are some parents getting their own space parking with theur last name on it? This is a public school."

    "This is a great school! The teachers are dedicated and want to instill a sense of belonging to children. My child feels safe and cared for. My child is learning much and its more than academics-it is a community and a home away from home here."
