    "2 kids in school past 5 years. Like any school, you get what you put into it. I volunteer in the yard and no different than other schools- no fights!!! Teachers and Principal always readily available.So work with them! All highly experienced. More diverse demographic than other schools, which I honestly prefer. My kids have friends of varying socioeconomic levels. Parent involvement and the amazing school district really make a difference. They have PE several times a week, library, music, band, an award-winning garden club and Art in Action. Electronic whiteboards in all the classrooms and are purchasing more ipads for the class. District Science teacher and now Math teacher to develop curriculum. Spanish program has provided some more cultural enrichment and next year they are starting a recess program that emphasizes conflict resolution and inclusive play. I would not hesitate to recommend this school and have known parents transfer kids to this school from others in the district due to bullying! Again, you get what you put into it. If you work in partnership with your teacher and Principal, you will reap the benefits!"

    "Just hope your kid is not bullied. If so then you can forget getting any support from administrators. All they did in our situation was to punish the victim than deal with the bullies. Academically the school is OK. Nothing to right home about. They have some really great teachers and some really bad teachers. They also seem to have many new inexperienced teachers so beware in getting the new one. I also noticed a few "lemons". Good luck I would probably pick Lincoln if I had an option."

    "This is an excellent school. Our K,1st and 2nd teachers very like a family to the kids. Grades 3-5 get less warm&cuddly and more responsibility, homework, preparation for STAR tests, etc. The principal Ms. Valerio is extremely dedicated - knows every child and every parent. She is the one standing outside at pickup time routing kids to their parents making sure everybody is safe. It's very easy to get a hold of every teacher, the principal and the secretary (that said, try getting Lincoln principal on the phone and good luck with that!). This school is rated 8 out of 10. Lower test scores are simply result of more lower income kids compared to other Burlingame schools. Check out test scores by subgroup - they are pretty much identical across all schools."

    "McKinley is a phenomenal school with an excellent Principal and staff. With the addition of the new Annex building, the campus is newly landscaped and looking better than ever. In the 5 years my kids have been at McKinley I have never heard of fights breaking out or "random people on the premises" nor are children "bused in" (where would they be bused in from? BSD doesn't even have buses!) There are some very special things about McKinley, the Harvest Festival, father/daughter dance, Founder's Day, our beautiful garden and of course the amazing parent community (I could go on). Go Bulldogs!"

    "McKinley Is an amazing school with an excellent staff. The school has a very diverse population that is just wonderful. The curriculum is challenging and the teachers are very collaborative. They have soccer coaches that come once a week at lunch, The Physical education has implemented a program for recess coaches and this provides the older students a leadership role. Have I mentioned how awesome the parent community is. We are a big family at McKinley."
