We have been there last year, the food at school is nasty. My kids had been happy with school lunch before we move here but then we have to cook for them. Few day ago I see it look better, maybe the new principle come so he made a new development, I hope so. Will see if new principle can make progress.

McKinley is rocking my previously private schooled kid's world. Great neighborhood feel. The teachers are amazing. The renovations on the inside are incredible and the outside 30 Million dollar project is coming along. The parents are incredible and if you're looking for warmth with strong academics, ...  Read more

McKinley Elementary is a fantastic school! My children have been attending for four years. It is not our home school so I have to drive 25 minutes to get my kids to school each day. I have to say I wouldn't have it any other way. Great teachers, great programing. They have a new Art Teacher named Seda ...  Read more
