As the demand for college graduates with Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) are rapidly increasing, Ralph McKee High School is catering to that demand by creating college ready graduates, through the school's Information Technology, per-engineering, robotics, advanced math and science programs; and I am proud that my daughter is one of these students.

The trade education opportunities (CISCO Systems, automotives, carpentry/woodworking) and academics make for a powerful preparation for life in the real world. And, therefore, the possibilities loom large.

I am so happy with my daughters's education that they have received so far at McKee. The staff is open and honest about what is going on with your child. They call home for good things along with of course the bad stuff too.

Ralph R. McKee CTE High School offes a rigorous academic and hands on environment, in which students build to their potential. It offers an academic diploma with and career and technical education certification. In the Construction Technology Institute, graduates of McKee are eligible for lucrative apprenticeships through the partnerships with the New York City MTA and Construction Skills 2010, career and technical institutes and competitive four year colleges. Pre-Engineering and computer aided Drafting Institute graduates receive an academic diploma and CTE certification and are prepared for prestigious four year colleges like Dartmouth and Stevens Institute. In the Automotive Institute, each student is immersed in state of the art equipment to prepare students for the increasingly computer driven automotive industry. In CISCO, students learn computer networking and gain invaluable experience connecting with professionals who are in the field. At McKee, students gain the academic content, critical thinking skills and are encouraged to meet and exceed expectations, more than they ever imagined. The Soaring Seagulls (the school mascot) fly strong because 'Learning is Key at McKee.' Everyday, the school community works together to make the vision a reality.

Ralph McKee is a great because they have small classes and great teachers that are willing to help you to become whoever you want to be.Funny teachers who are down to earth and share their stories with the students to make them feel comfortable and know that teachers too went through the same struggles they are facing right now. I LOVE MCKEE.

I am a senior at Ralph R. McKee High School, enrolled in the CISCO program. Honestly, this school is great for learning trades and special skills. Our school is a close community where everybody knows everybody and everyone gets along. I had my doubts about McKee at first because of all the rumors, but I love it here. The opportunities each student is given are endless and it gives students a good feel about the work force, and even gets some students employed while attending school.

There was little or no parental involvement what so ever. The only thing i can give the school is the teachers because they're nice, and some do care about the students.

This has been a good year for my son. He is entering the 10TH grade in September and we are looking forward to another good year. I found his teachers to be caring and supportive. I think we made the right choice in picking a high school for him.The staff is friendly and helpful and I think this reflects well on the leadership of the principle. I would only ask that the school would offer a music and art program and incorporate a more extensive forign langueage program into the curriculim.
