Just hope your kid is not bullied. If so then you can forget getting any support from administrators. All they did in our situation was to punish the victim than deal with the bullies. Academically the school is OK. Nothing to right home about. They have some really great teachers and some really ...  Read more

This is an excellent school. Our K,1st and 2nd teachers very like a family to the kids. Grades 3-5 get less warm&cuddly and more responsibility, homework, preparation for STAR tests, etc. The principal Ms. Valerio is extremely dedicated - knows every child and every parent. She is the one standing outside ...  Read more

McKinley is a phenomenal school with an excellent Principal and staff. With the addition of the new Annex building, the campus is newly landscaped and looking better than ever.

This school is not what you would expect from a Burlingame school. I would not recommend moving to Burlingame for this school. It lacks good leadership. The focus is not on education. The playground is wild and needs better supervision. Many kids are bused in and that might be one of McKinleys problems. ...  Read more

McKinley delivers the state mandated basics to the children, but as another reviewer stated, little else is taught. Science, technology and music are weak while the art program is taught by volunteer parents. Kudos to the parents for filling these needs! Also, the Spanish immersion program is like ...  Read more

Parents are really involved, Teachers are really happy to be there and the Kids are having a blast and learning at the same time! My daughter is in kindergarten and loves to go to school everyday!!

McKinley is the ideal school. It has an old fashioned aura, strong family influence and a principal who puts the children above all else. Her leadership is strong and sincere. Her staff and teachers love their jobs. The difference at McKinley is the kids are on the forefront of everyone's mind. EVERYTHING ...  Read more

* In 2011-2012 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
