    "My daughter started Kindergarten at McCall, and I am most impressed with the Parent Involvement and strong Home and School Association! The parents back the teachers and administration 100%, which, in turn, benefits the students greatly! The students are friendly and welcoming, and the teachers love their jobs: which says a lot for the school climate. I am looking forward to a great year at McCall!"

    "When my son was born in 2005, the word on the street was that McCall was great for kindergarten but not beyond. As he was growing up, every year the "good" year was pushed back, eventually to a point where McCall's stellar reputation as a school was not limited to a particular grade level. My son is now a rising 2nd grader at McCall; he has had two wonderful years with amazing teachers who have made learning fun and challenging for him. He seems to be doing much more advanced work than his private school-educated friends (many of whom have never done homework, let alone take tests and give presentations to their classmates). There is a wonderful diversity at McCall (in my experience all of the children seem to get along and respect each other, despite their different cultures and backgrounds). The parent community is also very tight (in my experience as class parent, as well as helping out on different HSA fundraising efforts and attending HSA-sponsored activities outside of school hours (movie nights and school plays, for example, which are all very well attended). McCall is a great foundation for the Society Hill neighborhood, and we look forward to many more great years there."

    "We have two children at McCall - one who is entering the fifth grade who has been there since first grade and another who started in kindergarten and who is now entering second grade. We have been delgihted with the faculty, staff, resources, and diversity of this remarkable school and will remain big supporters. Our boys have been met, learned from, and built friendships with exceptional children from a broad cross section fo Center City life. They have been encouraged to be voracious readers through the 100 book challenge, thoughtful citizens through need-in-deed activities in classes, and young mentors through the Payworks program. We have taken advantage of STEM night to talk about careers in math and science, and have attended muscials that have embraced the talents of students at each level. One of our children was identified as having special needs and the principal and his teacher worked with support staff to secure the services he needs. With public education in Pennsylvania and Philadelphia in particular under attack by the state government, McCall is an outstanding example of the important role a school plays in the life of the community."

    "I am in the seventh grade class of McCall currently and I love it here! My grade is small, only about 50 kids spread over two classes. My teachers are fabulous and even though the school isn't that challenging for me, the teachers try their hardest. I got to take an algebra class this year and an 8th grade math class in sixth grade. The people here genuinely care about you. The after-school activities are fun. Budget cuts are an issue, and my fabulous strings teacher might not come back next year. All in all, McCall is the best!"

    "It was private school or McCall - big decision - and we made the right one. Save your money - The teachers, administration, and the incredible leadership from this EXCEPTIONAL Principal made this a great choice. It is a shame that the impending budget cuts are going to take away some of the unique programs and wonderful teachers that have been part of this school. However, the Principal is extremely strong and I have every bit of faith that she will keep the great work going."
