I have had three children go through McKinley and I am so thankful they had the opportunity to learn from teachers that care. I highly recommend this school.

This school is undervalued on greatschools. The staff is amazing. The teachers and administrators care about the students beyond test scores and work with the parents and students with the success of the child in mind. It is the home of the gifted program for Joplin schools and houses some of the most dedicated teachers I have ever had the pleasure of knowing.

While this isn't a bad school, there are things that could be improved upon. Trying to get the principal to return any form of communication is difficult, although she seems involved with what is going on in the school and has a good relationship with the staff. The materials that get handed out for activities, etc. often get sent home late. There is lack of communication with parents and the PTO is really a joke. Very unorganized school.
