From the moment you walk in you are welcomed with smile and a greeting. Staff is always ready to lend a hand, give high fives, encourage and love on each student that walks through the doors. I have three children and my last child is in 3rd grade now, best teachers, amazing experiences, challenged, loved on. Best part seeing my succeed because the teachers never give up!!! Love this school! In it together!!!
I have two kids at Slaughter now and this is our 4th year attending. I have to admit that I was skeptical at first, simply because I thought the exterior of the school could use some improvements, but my kids really love it here and I am so ashamed of myself for judging a book by its cover. The teachers and staff have fostered a love of learning in my kids- so much so, that my children complain about school vacation and jump up in the morning so excited to go to school. Both of my children are excelling academically and socially and are far beyond their cousins and friends from other states whenever we go back for visits. I am so grateful that my children are exposed to diversity at school- I feel it makes them more accepting, culturally aware, and just better human beings because of it. The PTO is heavily involved in hosting events that kids and families can look forward to attending. We have had an extremely positive experience at Slaughter and I can’t thank the entire staff enough for the elementary education my kiddos are receiving here. If there was anything I could change, I would wish for a playground upgrade- however the playground behind the school does not even belong to the school, it is run by Mckinney parks & rec so truly if anyone has issue with the playground/park they need to take it up with Parks and Rec because the school can’t do anything about it. All in all, we love Slaughter!
I wouldn't trade my son's years at Slaughter for anything! I'm so grateful for all of the love and support I received as a parent and my son received from kindergarten through 5th grade.
We have been at E. Slaughter Elementary for a few years now and absolutely love it! They have some of the most caring teachers, who work hard teaching and caring for the students. Many have been Mckinney ISD’s “Teacher of the Year” and continue to work hard to make learning fun while educational. My child’s fourth grade math teacher rearranged her classroom to create a math camping scene. Each station had different math problems to solve in a fun interactive process with their peers. It was so cute and the kids loved it. I volunteer at the school and see the overflowing love these teachers have for their students. This school is a gem in McKinney ISD. It is diverse and multicultural. There are children from all walks of life learning and playing in a healthy and happy environment. I love that my children get to attend a school like Slaughter. They have a pep rally almost every Friday, where they celebrate one student from each class who has demonstrated the “wolf pack way”. Each grade has a fun cheer and all the students celebrate that weeks “Alpha Wolves”. It is beautiful to see. I do think the school could use some renovations and a fresh coat of paint. However, my daughter brought a friend with her to bingo night last week, and her friend thought the school was so colorful and fun. She said it was nothing like her “boring beige” school. I guess from a kids perspective the multicolored walls are pretty fun. Speaking from experience, their dyslexia and speech programs are phenomenal! Their PE, art and music programs are very fun and interactive. There are an abundance of teachers and faculty members whom love these students like their own and give everything to aid in their success. Earl Slaughter Elementary has been a blessing to our family and I am grateful my kids get to go here!
