Community ratings & reviews

    My son is a rising Sophomore. We have been quite satisfied with both the teachers administration and the academics at McKinley Technology Senior High School. The teachers are excellent they have a strong principal and both strong student and administrative leadership and the academic programs are most challenging. This is from the parent of a Howard University Middle School of Mathematics and Science graduate.

    I think that is a great school. My son has progress a lot. It still needs some adjusting in the Foreign Language Department.

    I am happy with my son's progress with this school. All of his teachers last year were a pleasure to talk with.

    The district has extremely limited quality public education choices. I feel privileged that my child and the student body have such a dedicated faculty and support system at Mckinley.
