My school is a great place to be. My children have all had great experiences at McKinley. The PTA is very involved, adding enrichment programs for the children. It's like being part of a large extended family.

We wanted to send our daughter to this school bc my husband went there. She loves it but they have three or four recesses a day, watch nick jr shows everyday and have ants in the closet were they keep the rest mats. Other then that the teachers are delightful!

I am also a proud parent of a child at Mckinley, we are moving this month out of district, and are hoping that the board of Ed will grant us the option to stay at Mckinley. We would be devastated to leave this great school!

I am a parent of a child in McKinley School. I can not be more thrilled with the school, and especially it's teachers and students. I absolutely love the diversity! The only thing I wish they would do, is stop this issue with saying that McKinley School is out of balance because it has more minorities ...  Read more
