McKinley is a very unique educational environment. It is not a traditional high school, being as there is a middle school in the same building. The high school has a fairly small population, but that makes the experience more personal. They have an exceptional, award- winning fine arts department, and is well- known for the band program. Overall, McKinley is a tight- knit, well administrated school, and I am extremely fortunate to have attended.

McKinley is nothing special. Visually, the school isn’t pleasing which can deter you from wanting to attend but the academics aren’t horrible...they’re some of the better within the district actually. I liked how small the school is and how close knit it is. You truly feel like an individual because there’s so few people. The best department in my opinion is the English/Comm. Arts department, but the math isn’t too bad either. The science department needs A LOT of work and the electives are subpar.
I feel McKinley has a lot of diversity, it has a rigorous, challenging academic program, it challenges the students mind and creativity, they have a sports and clubs to fit just about every personality. They communicate well with parents. They genuinely care about the students. The environment to me appears very safe. I love the fact that the principal keeps parents informed with emails and slps recorded mail. Im vert satisfied with this school, if they had better funding they would be A+ for me
