Open Quote Really happy with my child's experience here. It was challenging and gave my son the opportunity to excel. Ms Enlow is a particularly amazing 2nd grade teacger. Close Quote

Open Quote HIdden gem thats not really so hidden anymore in the philly public school system. We are so impressed with the quality of teaching here. The facilities are not stellar as the building is old and decrepit, but the public school system is woefully underfunded. However, as teaching goes, this place is absolutely stellar. My child learned more in one year here than any other school he's ever been in. In fact, McCall taught my son (in 2nd grade at the time) everything he needed to learn in 3rd grade in Chapel Hill, NC (where we moved-- and technically the top rated public school in the state). Let's just say he's so bored in his new school that I'm currently looking at private school options now. Close Quote

Open Quote After being underwhelmed by the two private schools in Center City, we opted to pull our middle son and put him at McCall. I was shocked at how much better the teachers were. While the class size is definitely larger, the amount of learning actually taking place in the classroom was substantially better. Much to my own surprise, I prefer McCall over the private schools.

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.
