My Kindergartner couldn't be in a better school. McDowell Mountain is a fantastic place for kids to learn and grow. The emphasis I've seen on learning makes it so much fun for my daughter! I've volunteered in the classroom and can say, from first-hand experience that this school gets an A+ from me!
