  • This school is great, the teachers and staff really care about the kids, if parents would take the time to go help at the school they would see how wonderful they are. As far as racist, I would say that is individual parents and their children not from the staff and I went to other Crown Point schools and you have this in all of them.

  • This school is awesome. Ms. Buchko is very active with the kids and knows most kids by name. The staff is great and care about the kids and learning.

  • I wish to remain anonymous, being that I still have school aged friends/family in the MacAuthor district. However, myself & several parents in the area despise this so called school. They are rude, mean, cold, & RACIST! The other Crown point schools are great, but this one is horrible. I pray for its closure.
