I have four children that have attended McGavock. It was a great experience academically as well as personal. My children achieved excellence in academics. I have one child that had trouble with math and testing and as soon as the teacher realized what the problem was we were called in with a plan and it was put in place. This helped her as she went on to middle/high school and she just graduated with Distinguished Schoolars from McGavock High Schoo. I highly recommen McGavock Elementary for academic excellence.
