MIT was honored with the County Office of Education’s inaugural award, San Mateo County Office of Education Excellence in Education and Equity Award, while also receiving the J. Russell Kent Award from the San Mateo School Boards Association.
The project has been successful in raising literacy and increasing family engagement.
The award honors the district's work with its community schools, which is a national research-based model designed to close the achievement and equity gap in underserved communities.
Resources for parents to help them keep their students engaged and learning.
Welcome to McKinley Institute of Technology (MIT), a small traditional middle school housed in a beautiful historical building that has been transformed into a technology-learning hub for 6-8 students. We provide a safe and supportive learning environment where we identify and address each student’s individual needs.
In the backyard of Google and Facebook— and in the midst of Silicon Valley—middle school students are experiencing hands-on learning with coding, keyboarding, and expanded uses of technology while also receiving instruction in core subjects, and offering a variety of elective choices. We also have the resources to provide the students with a chromebook at the start of every year that they can use for instruction a home and at school.
Our school’s smaller size facilitates a supportive learning community for students, whose teachers can take the time to get to know each of their students as individuals and work closely with their parents in order to best facilitate their child’s success in school. We extend this consideration through McKinley’s after school program, YMCA, which provides a safe and caring place for students to complete homework, learn, and have fun.
McKinley thrives because of our strong committed staff members and parent groups that are focused on the success of every child. McKinley also recognizes the importance of giving students a voice in their education, through Student Council and their elective / explorative classes.
