Welcome to McDowell...

We are so happy to have you at McDowell Elementary school! We serve approximately 340 students in grades K-5.  Thank you for choosing our school as the building block of your child’s education. I am proud to say that we have a wonderful, highly qualified staff.  They take great care in providing a balanced curriculum, which incorporates the academic, social, and emotional well-being of each student.  You have begun a great partnership between home and school that allows your student to grow and develop as a learner.
