  • Someone said that all teachers should have English as the first language? Whatever for? Some of the best professors are recruited from other countries. A good school wants the best teachers, not just those born in the US. I had many foreign teachers at my schools and was happy for it. My son went to McKinley and loved it and had a successful high school experience. It is a shame that the STL public schools are written off. We are from Kirkwood and sent him there because it was even a better school than the Kirkwood schools.

  • This school accelerated my academics by far. When I attended McKinley I was taking higschool courses and I passed my constitution test so I didn't have to take it in High school. In highschool, i noticed how prepared I was because of the rigorous courses that I had taken at McKinley.
