McKinley Community School Mission
McKinley Community School’s mission is to Prepare, Empower, and Inspire lifelong learners and leaders. Students develop problem- solving and critical thinking skills and learn to apply them to complex challenges. Our students participate in project based learning in our living lab and greenhouse, working for an extended period of time to investigate and respond to an authentic, engaging and complex questions, problems, or challenges. Mckinley School is a 2018-2019 Bronze recipient of Future Ready Schools. Students have the opportunity to be involved in S.T.E.M., Environmental Studies, Leadership and Civic activities. Students participate in our AVID Classes, RIME Program, Safety Patrol, Student Council, and Drama Club. All eighth grade students complete a CAPStone project and present their projects at the end of the year.
