McKinley is a top-notch school, on par with the best private schools in the region. I studied the preschool and elementary options available to us across the region (Northern Virginia & DC) extensively, including private programs. My eldest attended Arlington Traditional School, which we found to be ...  Read more

My two kids go to McKinley and we couldn't be happier with the school. *** Awesome STAFF, TEACHERS, PRINCIPAL and PTAl!!*** Foremost, as a parent, we value the safety of our kids. Given that it is located smack dab in the middle of a great neighborhood, it feels safe and most parents know each other ...  Read more

A great school for an all round student with no special educational needs. For those with special needs you are not always made to feel very welcome and the principal would seem to want to have special education children elsewhere. Like most APS schools test scores seem to be more important than creating ...  Read more

McKinley Elementary is a great school with ample emphasis on various educational areas. As a former math and science major with international background, would I like to have more math and science in a public school? Yes, but that goes for American public schools in general, and is not specific to McKinley. ...  Read more

Our girls love this school and we do too. Would I prefer it had a greater focus on math and science, yes. However, the teachers are great, and the community is great too. We couldn't be happier! The girls will get more than enough time to focus on math and science later. Additionally, there are ample ...  Read more

We have loved McKinley and have felt that it has struck a fine balance between rigorous instruction in the basics and an enriching program in the arts, music, and drama. The school, under Mr. Brown's excellent leadership, is a warm and well-organized place. We have been especially impressed by the ...  Read more

I have 2 children at McKinley Elementary. Our McKinley teachers have all been absolutely wonderful. The school's Principal and staff all do a truly excellent job as well. Parents are very involved & supportive. Ensuring every child succeeds is a top priority at McKinley. Academically, McKinley has consistently ...  Read more

We read some of the comments listed and decided to post as well. We have no choice but to send our children to McKinley. We like arts but they won't be leading to our children's wider educational goals. The teachers are terrific but the education is lacking. My 4th grade child should be able to write ...  Read more

We feel very blessed to have our child attend McKinley. Principal Colin Brown is in his second year at the school and is a sharp, thoughtful leader who is a pleasure to work with. I absolutely love that my child had access to full day kindergarten, not to mention the FLES program (3 days a week of Spanish ...  Read more
