We at McKinley seek to provide a rigorous, collaborative, thought-provoking, Common Core aligned curriculum. We believe all students can learn and will leave McKinley as academic, life-long learners. Our learning community includes ongoing formative assessments to drive comprehensive instruction by addressing the needs of all our students.
