I went to this school when I was six or seven years old, and my experience with this school was outstanding. The teachers were kind and conformed to each student's individual needs. The education I received while I was going to McKnight Elementary was remarkable. I'm fourteen now, and because of this school I have the desire to learn. I definitely enjoyed my time at this wonderful school.
