    "My son is in kindergarten, and I am completely impressed with the school on many levels. The various educational professionals we interact with (main teacher, technology, librarian, principal, etc) are all very generous in talking about their class and about my child specifically. The HSA is a core group of moms who are very creative in trying to make parents aware of the happenings on a regular basis through a digital newsletter. They are also trying to overcome the funding cuts with various fundraising efforts, that try to bring parents together. If you have an idea on how you can benefit the school, the student's experience, etc, all are receptive to it. I have first hand experience with this through a recent effort to green the school grounds. Kindergarteners rotate through specialized classes throughout the week. Art, Music, Technology, Problem Solving, PE. Personally, I'd like to see more diversity in activity during the PE sessions. Cup stacking is not my idea of a Physical Education activity, especially for a 5 year old boy. However, they do have a playworks program that supplements this. I feel Mr. Battestelli deserves a personal shout out. He is such a wonderful teacher."

    "The teachers at McCall are very sincere and are invested in each and every student that they teach. The principal, Ms Rose Rock is simply amazing. She is always around to make sure that the students get to their classes on time and does not leave school until each student has left. The home and school association is made up of parents who are willing to go the extra mile to make sure that McCall has all the facilities to to use opportunities and resources to all staff and students. McCall is a big family and a gem in Philadelphia."

    "If you have an opportunity to attend McCall, take it. This humble school isn't always touting it's excellence, but make no mistake McCall is one of the top elementary/middle in the district and the region."

    "My school was wonderful. However, we have to bring materials by ourselves right now. Such as crayons, color pencils, and even markers. The art teacher of our school said that she's even trying to think about what project could we do with those old materials left. She tried to get new materials, but we don't have any money for them. So, please!!! Thank You !! And I love my school."
