Mckinley is one of the best schools I could have hoped for when sending my child to n elementary school. The staff is responsive to all my questions as a first time elementary school parent, and not once have i been made to feel silly for asking questions i'm certain they have heard a million times. they are currently building a brand new campus for the school which is absolutely exciting! the school offers an innovative dual language program to kindergartners that will follow them through their primary years. My daughter, currently in Kindergarten has spanish 3-5 days a week. She learns her core curriculum in spanish and in english. Initially program officials had to fight to get this program funding but now that it is in the second year nearly third, I am hopeful they will see this amazing and innovative idea through middle school and all the way through high school. My kindergartner is truly becoming bilingual and what's better, she is speaking with the family bilingually and teaching us her new found love of reading and speaking in two languages. McKinley is an amazing school! Do not let the "no gym" fool you, they have plenty of running around and physical activity!
