McKinley Elementary School Reviews
We thank our lucky starts for having gotten into McKinley! We have a 4th grader and Kindergartner now, and are constantly amazed at the vibrant and dedicated community of teachers and parents found at McKinley. We love the diversity, we love the safe and nurturing environment our children learn in everyday, and most of all love the parent community we have become a part of.
We love this wonderful little school and feel like we won the jackpot being placed at this up-and-comer. Our son is in kindergarten and loves it. The small size of the school means no one gets lost in the cracks. A very nurturing and attentive environment. Caring and dedicated teachers who do a great job with differentiated learning. Enrichment focus on music, dance, Spanish, environmental science. Parents are very involved and getting more adventurous about fundraising. Facilities are quirky (70s building) but cozy.
