We are proud to host full-day kindergarten through fifth grade in a completely renovated, modern facility. Our students and staff are proud to have earned the highest School Performance Profile score in the West Allegheny School District.
We utilize a rigorous inquiry-based mathematics program to help prepare our students for the higher-level mathematics courses ahead. Our teachers are trained to help promote a balanced approach to literacy instruction in which phonics, phonemic awareness, decoding, vocabulary, fluency, comprehension, and writing are addressed in daily instruction.
McKee Elementary offers swimming, band, chorus, art, music, PE, library, and Computer Innovation and Design (CID) as our special area classes. CID offers students in grades 1-5 opportunities in Computer Science, Innovation, and Design. Students engage in computer programming/coding through programs like Tynker, Scratch, Code and Lego Robotics (grades 3-5). Additionally, students are participating in a cooperative design process in the MakerSpace through Project Lead the Way (grades 4-5) and mini-design challenges (grades 1-5).
