This is a great school and such an ideal fit for my young kids. Mr. Looper is "THE BEST PRINCIPAL" and the staff surrounding him are great. The two ladies in the front office are always friendly and helpful. As a parent, I was very critical about the education my children was going to receive and didn't expect to have them stay at this school for very long; however, as I got to know the teachers, principal, and parents of this school, I realized a school is more than just a number. My kids are in the "GATES" program and they are doing well. This is the only school in the district that has an intact GATES program during school hours, which is great. It's not just a school, it's a community.

Outstanding self-contained GATE program. The GATE teachers are experienced and dedicated. This is an excellent program for the student who is motivated to learn and loves a challenge.

I have two girls that attend McKee and I have been real pleased with the way my daughters are learning. I am not to happy with the uniform policy because there is alot of parents out there that can not afford it. I also do not think it is right that on field trips if a parents drives that they can not bring the students younger sibling along. To me that is like saying that child can not learn the stuff that their brother or sister is learning and that is not right.
