For the past 10 years my children have had the great pleasure of attending school at McKinley. The teachers are dedicated and dynamic and my children, one of whom is gifted and the other an average student, both excelled in this caring environment. I love the diversity of the population.

The Teachers and Principal work hard to make this a life learning experience for all children. This is our 3rd generation at this school, and the improvements to the building keep learning here fresh. Great time for kids, they love learning here!!!
