St. Louis Public Schools Magnet System is the best-kept secret in public education. Now, all we need to do is disseminate all these wonderful methods and programs to all the children in our city!

The teachers are very accessible. There is a nice balance of autonomy for the children while requiring them to work hard and do their best.

My daughter is currently attending this school in the 9th grade. She has been here since the 6th, This is a smaller sized, gifted school....which is what we wanted for our daughter. The teachers are very motivated to keep the curriculum up to date and interesting for the students. My daughter's class size is very small at this time since they are the first 9th graders, but seems like they're off to a pretty good start. This summer she will be going to Paris, France with her French class.

Mckinely is a great gifted school! We do high school vocabulary. The discipline is ok, but there are a couple of fights and cell phones arent aloud.

Students are fun, interesting, smart and free spirited. This was one of the best times in my life. Most of the teachers were inspiring and all pushed hard for achievement. The material and class format was truly like a HS. They really proved that you do not need to educate 13 year olds as though they were in 6th grade.
