    "McKinley school has had impressive growth in the 2 years we have been there.It has a very small school feel with all the staff caring about the whole child. My son has grown academically as well as personally as the school really gives the kids a chance to find their voice and place in the community. The small class sizes, excellent teachers/administrators who encourage students to be their best self and the school diversity make this a special place in Petaluma.McKinely was a great choice for the Petaluma School District to put their GATE program."

    "I can't describe how fortunate we are to have our daughter in the 4th grade GATE program at McKinley this year. Leaving her local public school (and friends and community) for McKinley was a big risk for her, and she is so happy to have made the switch. Rather than coming home tired and over-stimulated from having spent a day in a crowded classroom with a tired teacher, she comes home calm and ready to do homework, cheerful that she has been challenged and validated, and, most importantly, still showing a love of learning because her classroom time has not been wasted doing busywork, easy work, or waiting for other kids to get with the program. I have spent time with all her classmates: they are bright, polite, enthusiastic kids. We love it that she is learning Spanish and music during the school day, and playing with kids from outside the GATE class whom she met through the Boys and Girls Club after school. McKinley School is growing its sense of community and its parent involvement through holiday events, fiestas, its nascent talent show and fund-raising. The principal is the most engaging, accessible, enthusiastic and wholly committed head of a school I have ever met."

    "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."
