We provide students with unique opportunities to cultivate the artist as well as the student. We believe engaging in the creative arts ignites a desire to learn in all areas of life. We value building community and family partnerships and strive to make all school events accessible to all families. Our students are well-rounded, driven, confident and ethically aware of the world around them. At McKinley Middle Magnet, we believe in changing the world one student at a time.
