I can't describe how fortunate we are to have our daughter in the 4th grade GATE program at McKinley this year.

Our 9 yr old son started McKinley this year. He is in the GATE program and is being challenged on a daily basis. The subject matter is covered thoroughly.

We have been very happy with McKinley School. Our son is in fourth grade and is constantly challenged by the rigorous academic curriculum and expectations. Not only is he learning to master basic skills, but he is really being pushed to think critically on a regular basis. We also feel very lucky ...  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.
