We moved our two kids to McKinley El last year because of the Dual Immersion and STEM programs it offers. We love the school! We have been impressed with the quality of the administrators, teachers, office staff, and PEP organization. The principal, Mr. Symonds, and assistant principal, Mr. Nguyen work hard to make McKinley a thriving learning environment. They are both very responsive to the kids and parents needs and inquiries. Mr. Symonds and Mr. Nguyen are also very supportive of the parent organization, PEP, and often attend the evening meetings to give their input. The office staff is always friendly and welcoming. McKinley has an incredible PEP organization that works hard to do fundraising and supports the school with fun student activities and events. We are also extremely happy that both our kids can attend the Parks and Recreation program after school. The leaders of the program like Diego and Karina keep the kids safe and promote the love of sports. Overall McKinley is the best elementary in our area!
