McKinley Elementary School 5

We received a waiver for my son to attend this school because it is close to my office. Convenience aside, this school is fantastic. The teachers are supportive and fully engaged with their students. Class sizes are manageable. And above all, this school has Ms. Emerson as the principal. She knows every single one of the students in the school and they all know that they can go talk to her if they need to. Her caring and compassion creates a supportive environment where students, teachers, parents, and administrators work together. McKinley does very well on state tests, but unlike other schools I have experience with the students are not traumatized by testing. Academic assessment is treated as a matter-of-fact experience which leads students to not dread the testing. My son had interactions with a teacher from another school who constantly reminded students that if they did not pass the third grade exam they would be held back. At McKinley instead of receiving threats about failure students receive support and are encouraged to succeed. I cannot say enough positive things about McKinley Elementary. This school is amazing.

One of the best schools for academical and extracurricular activities. Proximity to OU helps. Highly dedicated teachers and principal.

We left Norman in 2004, and aside from 2 incidents of recess bullying (in 5 years) and super deluxe fattening in-class snack time, McKinley was a great school for our young children. Many of the students were also young professor's kids, so the competencies and expectations were quite high, and the library was exceptional.

We are moving from McKinley and we are very sad. McKinley is a fabulous school. The parental involvement at the school is truly amazing. It makes a real difference! The teachers seem excited to be involved. And the principal and administrators are incredible.
