School Reviews

5.0  1/13/2017
My daughter is a 2nd grader in Caldwell Elementary's two-way dual language program, and I'm consistently impressed with her language abilities. The teachers care, and the school's administration is strong. I highly recommend this school for its dedication to the students and bilingualism. It's such a joy to hear my daughter speak in a foreign language. She's receiving an elite education at a public school. Don't look at test scores alone. They don't reflect what is happening at Caldwell. The children are learning their primary subjects, but also Spanish/English at a critical point for language acquisition. Good for McKinney ISD for offering this amazing, innovative program.
