About McKinley STEAM Elementary:
  • McKinley is a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts Integration, and Math) school that focuses on growth mindset, real world integration, and community partnerships.
  • First built in 1990, our building served as Willow Creek Intermediate School, housing our district's 6th graders.  In 2017, a large addition and renovation occurred to transition this site to a 625 student K-5 elementary site.  In September 2017, our school moved into this beautiful facility.
  • Our building focus is on life-long learning, with both students and staff.  We are continually learning!
  • We focus on educating the whole child through our multi-tiered system of supports (MTSS).  We have a strong structure in place to support every learner, every day!
  • We strive for engaging, supportive partnerships with students, families, and the community.
