McKinley Elementary is a warm and caring environment where we strive to educate the whole child.  Students are taught both academic and social skills to ensure our district’s goal of “enabling all children to succeed in an ever-changing world.” 

Academically, students are exposed to a curriculum that is creative and connected to the real world, leaving them prepared for success both now and in the future.  Technology also plays a large part in our academic success.  We are continually increasing technology exposure to enhance our curriculum. 

The education of children is a team effort between home and school.  Working together, it will be exciting to see our students accomplish the following goals:

·        All regular education students at McKinley will be performing at or above grade level.

·        Students will make a minimum of one year gain each year.

·        Students who transfer into McKinley below grade level will be caught up and functioning on grade level within three years. 

Each of our staff members is trained in teaching social skills to develop a well balanced student.  Social skills are taught and practiced daily, nurturing a respectful and positive school atmosphere.

We welcome you to visit our school, call or email with any questions you may have.  I look forward to meeting and working with each of you.
