All of these teachers and staff members are great. Mrs. Polak and office staff are always available and present even on the playgrounds. The teachers are always making themselves available to help past school hours with personal contact info.
My family just moved to the village after hearing of the historic revitalization underway. We are one of many young families moving here to start small businesses and we love the school. Their International Baccalaureate application was just accepted! There are small classes, lots of project based learning in elementary, second language in elementary, coding and computers for K+. They have speciality programs like Her Ideas In Motion, and more. A lot of the information on Zillow is outdated. The principals name is Jennifer Polak.
I graduated from Fairport and now I am thankful that my daughter is a Fairport student. Going to a smaller school allows more one-on-one attention for any student needing it and the teachers are more than willing to provide it. Fairport teachers are the most devoted teachers around. Still to this day I'll run in to a teacher I had and they will take the time to check in on my family, work, kids, friends... it's so nice to know they still care almost 10 years later. Just walking into McKinley you can see and feel how much every person on staff loves what they do and give 110%!
I think this school is a great enviroment for the kids. There isn't like a LOT of problems, but even though it is small, the teahcers can pay more attention to the kids, and they do better in school. This is an awesome school, and I really recommend it. I was once a student there, and it was awesome. I learned at lot of great stuff there, and all the teachers were helpful!
I truly believe that McKinley School, under the direction and leadership of Principal, Jane Murphy, is un-surpassed in education, dedication, discipline, self-respect, and above all, integrity! Her ethics and values shine through the teachers, parents, and students. The students truly 'love their school'! McKinley has provided a genuine caring and loving environment for my child. The motto 'No Child Will Be Left Behind' is in fact how it really is here! I simply cannot say enough about the sincerity and commitment of Jane Murphy and her staff as it relates to educating children. They will do whatever is necessary (even if it is above and beyond) to help any child succeed! They are that dedicated! I can honestly say that I do not believe that my child could be in any better environment than he is right now! We are truly fortunate to have this wonderful woman and her staff teaching our children! Highest Praises Here!
