At McKinley Elementary, we believe that kindergarten should raise the bar on student readiness! Our classes are designed to go beyond the basic structure of kindergarten, preparing our students to be successful learners and citizens. Our full-day program develops international mindedness through inquiry and project-based learning. McKinley is the first International Baccalaureate World School in Lake County!

Why Attend Screening? Kindergarten screening allows the teachers (and parents) to access a child's skills before entering kindergarten. Through a series of fun but informative tasks, we can determine a child's developmental readiness for the school-age setting. We will provide you with an individualized report of your child's skill progression, including ideas and activities, to strengthen academic and social skills.
