New Student Registration

KINDERGARTEN & NEW STUDENT PRE-REGISTRATION
Welcome to
McKinley Elementary School in North Park. We are a local school with a global view and are always looking for more students to join our community.  McKinley is an International Baccalaureate primary year’s school.  The McKinley Parent Teacher Club (PTC) provides many additional activities funded by the donations of our community and the donated time of our teachers.

We feel fortunate that our children receive an academically challenging education along with the opportunities to explore arts, music, assemblies and field trips not funded by our school district. Please explore our website to get an idea of all the opportunities available to your student. For those interested in joining the McKinley family, please refer to the following information.
