McCormick is PROUD to be a National Blue Ribbon School!

McCormick, one of five elementary schools within the Moon Area, opened its doors in August 2007. Its campus is nestled on 29.2 acres with a playground and baseball field for community use. Currently serving just over 200 students in kindergarten through grade 4, our school is dedicated to educating every individual in a respectful, safe, enriching environment through comprehensive programs that inspire excellence, lifelong learning, and responsibility.

Each child and teacher is unique and has intrinsic worth. We use recognition and appreciation to instill motivation and dedication in our school. Honest, open, and ongoing communication promotes trust and mutual understanding. Higher expectations – for students and staff – promote greater student achievement. A quality education provides opportunities and a basis for achieving success. At McCormick, education is a shared responsibility of the student, school, family, and community. A few essential elements of our educational process include confidence, competence, kindness and caring, as well as respect and cooperation.

McCormick has been recognized annually for its outstanding academic performance including earning Achievement Recognition for Adequate Yearly Progress from the Pennsylvania Department of Education for the following years: 2007-08, 2008-09, 2009-10, 2010-11, and 2011-12. This recognition transitioned into the Governor’s Award for Excellence in Academics that was awarded to McCormick in 2012-13 and 2013-14. All Pennsylvania Department of Education recognition banners are proudly displayed in the main hallway of our school so that our students, families, and teachers are reminded daily of our high quality educational program and our high expectations for all.
