    "As a recipient of a grant capping class sizes at 17, the student teacher ratio is fabulous. A new principle is working hard to engage parents, etc. but there is work to be done. Progress is happening fast so we plan on doing what we can to keep things moving in the right direction."

    "We moved our 5th grader from our neighborhood school last year to McKinley's GATE magnet program, which was a major change for our family, but one we have never regretted. We are very happy with not only the program itself, but the entire school. A unique feature for a Petaluma City School is that all students receive a couple hours of Spanish-language instruction weekly, which we feel is a valuable life-skill for anyone living and working in most states in this country. (Our other children won't get this until junior high, and already our 5th grader knows as much vocab as our 8th grader). Principal Matthew Harris and his staff are first rate and are well-loved by the students. McKinley mainly serves children from families where both parents work, which is why we rated parent involvement at 3 stars. We ourselves wish we could help out more, but our jobs prevent it. The McKinley community has been very welcoming to our family and we are proud of our child being a Mustang."

    "I am the mother of a 9 year-old 4th grader in the GATE class. We left a school we all really liked for the opportunity to participate in this special experience and it has been a wonderful decision. The teacher is excellent and I love the level of work my son comes home with. I volunteer for the art program in town so I've gotten to know the other kids in his class and they are a terrific, very bright group of kids. The principal has also done wonderful things for the school, including bringing in the GATE pilot program as well as a bi-lingual education pilot program, so the 4th-6th graders take Spanish twice a week. He is fully bi-lingual himself, has shown himself to be an energetic leader, is hardworking, warm, focused, smart and always available. We are very happy with McKinley. The GATE class size (16, in this case) makes it feel like a privileged private school but with the benefits of being part of a larger multi-cultural community."

    "Our 9 yr old son started McKinley this year. He is in the GATE program and is being challenged on a daily basis. The subject matter is covered thoroughly. The emphasis is placed on thinking and creating strategies and not just memorization and getting the answers. His teacher, Ms. Crandall, emphasizes creativity and continuing development. Our son also receives 2 hours of Spanish instruction a work. In addition, Mr. Harris, the principal is a standout. He is innovative, extremely intelligent and willing to listen to any and all suggestions from the community."

    "We have been very happy with McKinley School. Our son is in fourth grade and is constantly challenged by the rigorous academic curriculum and expectations. Not only is he learning to master basic skills, but he is really being pushed to think critically on a regular basis. We also feel very lucky that he is able to benefit from the extremely small class sizes offered at McKinley. The McKinley staff has been wonderful. All of the teachers at this school show incredible professionalism and dedication to their students. The principal is insightful and clearly cares about creating a wonderful learning environment. Even the secretary was incredibly helpful and made us feel so welcome at this new school. Our son has been very happy and motivated doing his assignments on his ipad (from the school) this year. It's been wonderful watching him learn use imovie, google drive and keynote at a 4th grader! He also enjoys learning in the school garden and attending the practically free ($10 a year) on campus childcare via the Boys and Girls Club after school every day."
