  • In order to better supervise student arrival/drop-off  and dismissal/pick-up to ensure student safety, parents will need to report to the office before entering the school (see information below).  Please be sure to pre-arrange with your child which gate they will be using to enter/exit the campus (Olive Ave. gate at the front of the school or the gate on Michigan Ave.).  Thank you so much for your cooperation and assistance in keeping our school safe!

  • 1903 McKinley School House

    Welcome to McKinley Elementary School where students come first and standards of academic excellence abound. A significant historical fact about McKinley is that it was the last of ten schools to be built in the city of Redlands before incorporation at the astronomical cost of $10,000 in 1903. Most of the current facilities were built in 1938 with an additional wing of classrooms added in the 1960's. In 1998, six portable classrooms were placed on the campus to house an increasing student population. Nevertheless, it continues to be a quaint neighborhood school rich in tradition and known for not having a parking lot. Most of our students live within walking distance of the school which is why, on a typical day, you will see parents and children arrive hand-in-hand excited to be on campus.

    On behalf of the entire McKinley Staff, we are looking forward to providing your student the best academic experience and instructional programs available. Over the past several years, McKinley has been recognized by the state for its accomplishments with promoting and fostering academic excellence amongst our students. My hope — with your support and dedication — is to ensure that McKinley continues down the path of excellence and success for all students!

    McKinley’s Vision
