Education is about people, and there is nothing more important to learning than the quality of the teacher in a classroom. Every day our teachers bring to our classrooms a deep-rooted knowledge base and a can-do attitude, they inspire, and that makes all the difference in the world to our students.

Our support staff members also are critical to our success. Every member of the Don McMath School team contributes to our success. They care about our students, and they take pride in our school.

Our team are professionals and true leaders in their fields.
