From the outside, McCoy Elementary School, in Carrollton, Texas, looks like every other suburban neighborhood school across the nation. Step inside McCoy, though, and a whole new picture of excellence emerges. Culture and tradition run deep in this school which serves students in kindergarten through fifth grade. Built in 1978, the school was named for the McCoy family, early settlers in the Dallas, Texas area.

What sets McCoy Elementary apart from other schools is its commitment to high achievement for every student. The focus on partnerships is what makes the campus mission statement special: "McCoy Elementary School, in partnership with our families and community, will develop students who meet the proficient or commended level on STAAR and graduate college ready and/or workforce ready without remediation." The tradition of excellence at McCoy extends to every student.

One parent expressed, "If ever there was a perfect school it would be McCoy Elementary. The staff and teachers truly love the kids; they go above and beyond the call of duty. I feel my son received so much more than a great elementary education, but a great start in life. The teachers and staff teach and exemplify character and a passion for learning." McCoy Elementary is a shining star in the academic world where a partnership with parents and community supports a strong foundation of high achievement creating a well-rounded, future-ready student.
