McKinley Connection

McKinley Middle School is located in the center of Racine. It is an International Baccalaureate World School. IB World schools share a commitment to high quality, challenging, international education that we believe is important for our students. They work in collaboration with families & the community to provide quality programming that prepares all students to be confident, successful, lifelong learners who can apply their learning to benefit the world around them and prepare them to be college and/or career ready. In addition, their staff utilize active & engaging instructional strategies that are tailored to meet the needs of individual students. To that end, they have supports & services for students who are English Language Learners, students who are Gifted & Talented, and students with disabilities.

JLS partners with the McKinley staff and students throughout the year.  

Please check out some of the exciting things we do.

  • Student Mentors come to JLS to discuss and ease some of the anxiety our fifth graders have about middle school.  They have wonderful discussions and can answer a lot questions our students have.  They bring a perspective that the students can easily relate to.
  • The McKinley Swing Choir, Viking Voices, and Jazz Band performs for our students and staff.  They are wonderful and it showcases the great things going on at McKinley.
  • Orientation seminars are available to answer questions and familiarize families with IB Middle School Years Programme.
