I love Mc Garity, all of my children have attended from kindergarden threw 5th grade and I now have high school children. The teachers and office staff are wonderful. I have never in my 11 years of dealings with Mc Garity have I had any bad thing to say about them.

Mcgarity has been an excellent school in the past, hopefully the principal and staff will be able to overcome the current problems.
