The reason that I give this school an average rating is not because of the students and/or the administration, but due to the lack of communication between the teachers and the parents. We both are working with our students/daughters or sons. It is time to work together not against each other!!

Greatest school I've been to. Administration is top notch and does the best with the staff it has. The Persistently Dangerous School label is a joke- I've seen more dangerous at a bingo hall.

While obviously not perfect, McKay hardly deserves such a low ranking. Until very recently, McKay had the best AP classes in the entire school district (yes, better than Sprague), and still has one of the best. We were recently given the title 'Most Persistently Dangerous School' in all of Oregon because ...  Read more

It is a great school. Everyone says its a 'dangerous school' but it really isn't. They based that on our expulsion rate. We get rid of the bad kids.
