School Description and Mission Statement (School Year 2018—19)
McKinley Elementary School, spectacularly situated overlooking the Santa Barbara coast, was refurbished and reopened in September 1986. The school, built in 1932, was the focal point for the Santa Barbara Mesa for many years and now serves the lower west-side of the city.
There are 22 regular classrooms, a beautiful library overlooking the harbor, a large play area with a phenomenal ocean view, a cafeteria, and an auditorium. Small conference rooms are used for group work. Three Santa Barbara preschool classes for three to four-year-old children also share our campus.
The enthusiastic and creative faculty consists of 18 teachers, a principal, and auxiliary personnel: three special education teachers, speech therapist, library tech, CALM guidance counselor, Family Advocate, school psychologist, instrumental music, art and physical education teachers and four credentialed reading support teachers.
The support staff includes three special education paraeducators, three interpreters for our deaf and hard of hearing students, one health assistant, one office coordinator and a part-time office assistant and two custodians.
McKinley is a TK-6 school. There are three half-day preschool classes offered at McKinley. Students feed into La Cumbre Junior High School. The high minority enrollment reflects the school community.
We believe all children can learn at high levels; therefore; we will give them the opportunity to reach their maximum potential. We will clearly state expectations, will be open to share ideas, will provide a rigorous curriculum, and will promote cultural awareness. We will have a stimulating learning environment for children, staff, and parents.
We believe the best way for us to meet our mission is to work as a team and professionally collaborate. We are a school where all are given opportunities to learn at high levels. Through our unique focus on balanced literacy and enduring social emotional learning, our professional community will:
- View all as learners (students, parents, staff)
- Work together in focused collaboration
- Hold high and rigorous expectations
- Prepare all members of McKinley Elementary School for the future
