McKinley School Spartans



Our Vision is to create a Pre K – 8th grade school that produces major gains in student achievement, and for it’s contribution in actively serving and improving the community in which it operates.



Our school strives to be a racially and culturally diverse community of students, parents and staff, dedicated to creating a peaceful environment in which, each person is treated with unconditional positive regard and acceptance.  Within such an environment, each student in Pre K – 8th grade, will become empowered and inspired to reach his or her full academic, emotional, and physical potential.


Students will improve their reading fluency with an increased building focus on reading connected text and guided reading groups.

Students will improve their mathematics proficiency with an increased focus on direct instruction and increased opportunities to apply skills.

Students will improve written language skills with an increased focus on opportunities to write narrative, non-fiction and opinion pieces.

Students will improve learning engagement and social skills with an increased  focus on kind, safe, cooperative and respectful interactions.

"Together we can achieve excellence in education!"

Please be aware that no food is to be brought into classrooms in order to celebrate a student's birthday.  This is due to a newly adopted policy regarding food allergies in effect in the North Bergen School District.  However, your child's homeroom teacher will suggest alternative ways to celebrate your child's birthday within the classroom that are safe for all students.
