Open Quote My son is in his first year at McMeen and we can't stand the school. They tell you one thing and then the exact opposite is what occurs. Our first 2 years of preschool were at Bradley International and we loved it there, but we are out of district for them and McMeen is our home school. You can tell that some of the teachers are just done with it and over it as they put forth little effort with the kids because they are overworked and underpaid. They do little to assist the kids with Bullies. They "talk" to the other child and nothing ever changes. Trying to get answers from anyone in the school is like pulling teeth. Close Quote

Open Quote worst decision of our life, beware of this place. Nothing good comes from Principal Adams. He is one of the rudest humans to walk the earth. Avoid this school like a plague. Close Quote

Open Quote This school is a multicultural quilt of languages and cultures. My son has attended 1st - 5th here and had incredible relationships with his teachers who have encouraged him to do his best, be bonded with his school, and sustain strong relationships. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
