Hail, Hail, McKinley High!
We’re loyal to you
For you we’ll always do our best
And always be true.
We’ll sing your praises high
For you we‘ll do or die
So here’s a cheer for old
The school to us most dear.

Welcome to Mckinley Senior High School

It is with great pleasure that I welcome you and your students to the 2017-2018 school year.  We eagerly welcome our new and returning families to McKinley High School, home of the “Mighty Panthers.” We warmly greet approximately 1,400 students from 9th to 12th grade each day. McKinley offers a nationally-recognized, award-winning academic program that focuses on accelerated core curriculum programs.


We at McKinley High School educate the whole child in a manner that emphasizes the love of learning. Each child is viewed as an individual with a unique potential for success. The staff at McKinley is committed to high expectations for all students and providing the best possible learning environment. We will continue to work as a team of teachers, parents, and community as we encourage our students to believe in themselves, accumulate knowledge, and gain social skills in order to become successful. This is made possible due to the support that classroom teachers receive by a highly qualified support staff.


We feel privileged to work with your children.  Our students are gifted, talented, cooperative, and strive to do well.  I’m proud of the efforts our students exhibit.  I’m equally proud of the superb commitment our staff has to your children as well.  Of course, we care deeply about the academic growth of each student, but we also care about their emotional, social, behavioral, and physical growth.  We strive to make every child feel safe, welcome, and valued.

We want our school to be a place where your voice is heard.  If you have ideas, thoughts, or concerns you’d like to share, we’d love to hear them.  You are always welcome to come into the school at any time.

Sincerely, James Kador
