Principal's Message

Welcome to McKinley Avenue School!

As the Proud Principal, I am eager to help lead McKinley forward to a place where learning meets rigorous instruction, high expectations and a safe learning environment.

McKinley enrolls students from early transitional Kindergarten (ETK) through grade six. We currently have 725 students who are served by 36 dedicated teachers, our motto is “Where learning takes place.” Students are expected to work hard and strive for academic excellence, which will ultimately preparing them for high school, college and beyond.

During the 2017-2018 school year we celebrated many achievements. We were able to significantly increase our state standardized test scores in English Language Arts (ELA) and Mathematics. We are proud recipients of the Bronze Award in the Healthy U.S. School Challenge. We continued our School Wide Positive Behavior Intervention and Support and expanded our number of technology device available to all classrooms.

As we move into the 2018-2019 school year I look forward to being a partner with you in your child’s education. We will work to ensure students are becoming life-long learners.

As the school year progresses, you will find information updated hire on our school website, or you may call the school office for additional information or support. If you are on social media you can follow us @McKinleyAveES on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

It is going to be a great year! McKinley is an amazing place to learn and I hope you are excited as I am about the year ahead. Thank you, in advance for your support at home in ensuring that your children come to school every day ready to learn.
