I am a current student of McKinley middle magnet and I can honestly say that this is a great school. We are taught not only school work but they give us the opportunity to try new things. At McKinley they offer dance, art, drama, piano, music and technology, business and computer software, and others. If you want your kid/kids to have a bright future then this is definitely the best school in the local area.

Former student from fall of 2009 to spring of 2012. The school is not very diverse and has a lot of issues from kids that come from really rough neighborhood. I recall bullying was an issue that made me detest coming to school my first year there. As with most middle schools, the kids grow up over the years. Mckinley did ,however, have the opportunity for students like me to enroll in high school credit courses like Algebra and Spanish 1. Overall, I received the education I wanted from the school. I strongly recommend parents to enroll their kids in schools that have the same opportunities with better student bodies like Sherwood Middle.

Mckinley is an awesome school with a warm and welcoming environment. My son had a phenomenal experience at McKinley Middle. The administration and faculty were all very supportive and helpful any time. I'd highly recommend sending your child to McKinley, especially if they're creative and artsy !

This school is wonderful. My child goes there and almost every week they have special activities. The teachers are truly outstanding, they don't just teach like a regular teacher, they have fun with the lesson as they teach to the class.There are many clubs that your child can get involved in after class. There are also extra high school courses so that when your child makes it to high school they wont have to take as many courses. As I have said McKinley is truly an outstanding school that helps students become prepared for their future.

I consider this school to be a hidden gem. The principal leadership is outstanding. He makes my child feel like part of a family at school with an open door policy. My child has attended this school in 6th &7th grades. It has a college prep curriculum along with close involvement with the arts, which I feel is so important. My child has also won 2 scholarships for college while at Mckinley middle. This school offers many positive incentives for good grades and leadership. There are also many opportunities to enter contests to win money, such as essy contests, poetry contests, art contests, photography contests to name a few.

I am so impressed with McKinley Middle Magnet. My daughter just started there this year, coming from a small, private school. It was a little overwhelming at first, but the principal, Mr. Brister, gets top honors for his compassion and the way he makes each student feel as if they are special. The teachers I have spoken with so far are excited about the subjects they teach, and the opportunity for classes like web design, Latin and Drama in 7th grade makes me happy with our decision. I would definitely recommend parents apply for this school. Also, I was amazed that our bus driver came to the house a few days before school started to meet our daughter and make sure she had the information about the route and time- truly impressive dedication!
