    "I am blown away by the teachers at this school. They expect the most from the kids but also let them be kids. The things they are learning are above grade level in my opinion. Principal is also top knotch."

    "Two of my nephews attend McKnight; one in kindergarten and one who is now in 4th grade. They love the personal attention their teachers take time to give and all the extracurricular activities too. The staff is very good about including and engaging the community and in having the older children help the younger."

    "As a parent who has had children in public as well as private schools I have to say despite its size McKnight Elm school and NA in general are far exceeding my expectations. The individual attention received as well as extra curricular activities offered in everything from intermurals, after school extras and advanced learning. The teachers seem to really love teaching here and the principal is very well respected for his job and his knowledge of each child! It's an amazing school!"

    "As an educational professional that is employed by another school district I would not dream of moving and up-rooting my kids to be closer to my place of employment. I understand the importance of a quality education and you cannot beat the educational experience at North Alleghey. Both of my children attend NA and it is absolutely top-notch! The principal of McKnight Elementary, Mr. Parks, is fantastic and truly puts the needs of children first."

    "I think this school is too quick to recommend psychological testing for children that exhibit reasonable developmental behavior. If we stick to education and discipline then things will be fine. The ADHD diagnosis rate for this school is about 10%."
