McKinley Elementary School Reviews

This incredible school is Petaluma's best kept secret. In many ways, it is a new school as it has undergone major change in the last five years. A diverse population and caring school environment. A incredibly dedicated group of teachers who show up to everything and really get involved. A dynamic visionary Principal who brings exciting new changes to the school each year while maintaining the beauty of a neighborhood school. A rigorous accelerated program for grades 4th through 8th with plans to extend the program to lower grades in future years. Spanish twice a week. Wonderful after school enrichment programs. A wonderful garden with dedicated garden coordinated. A school-wide robotics program. An emphasis on compassion and voluntarism. Student- and inquiry-based learning where students skip the worksheets and instead learn through projects and simulations. The list goes on and on! We just transferred this year and couldn't be happier!

McKinley ‘s accelerated program is fantastic. The science, math and writing projects have completely jazzed my daughters. The curriculum is light years ahead. The school teaches a philosophy of teamwork, rigor, kindness, collaboration and community service.

The school expects the kids to manage their own time. The kids manage their own homework and deadlines. The school provides day care that includes homework help and a variety of interesting clubs.

We are blessed to be in this program.
