Gifted/Talented Students

McKinley has been home to the Gifted/Talented program for decades. The Gifted Program is an educational program in which classes provide a high degree of complexity and extend beyond the prescribed curriculum offered in regular classes. Classes are taught by teachers certified in Gifted Education and have a reduced class size in order to individualize each student’s educational program. The Talented Arts Program is an educational program for students identified as talented in visual arts, music or theater. Classes provided in these disciplines are designed to provide experiences that enable the talented student to further develop demonstrated skills, increase discipline knowledge, and grow as an artist.

Great Scholars

Great Scholars Academy is an accelerated program with highly qualified teachersand a rigorous curriculum for middle and high school students in East Baton Rouge Parish School System. This program parallels the gifted program however Great Scholars students are placed in separate classes from the gifted students. Students must maintain an un-weighted overall 2.5 GPA or higher to continue in the program.

Athletics

Here at McKinley, we provide a variety of athletic opportunities that will aid inthe overall development of our students. Participation in athletics will provide students with a significant opportunity to become involved with other students and their coaches in an educational experience that takes place outside of the classroom. Teamwork, dedication, sportsmanship, and dependability are some basic characteristics that we encourage through our sports programs.
