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 committee has formed because RCSD went through a process last fall to move and merge programs and to consolidate schools in order for the district to balance its budget. This process, Planning for our Future, was undertaken because an independent financial consultant concluded that with declining enrollment, RCSD could not sustain 16 schools with 7,500 students.
The Sequoia Awards recognize young men and women for their outstanding work volunteering throughout the Redwood City community. Each student receives a scholarship worth between $5,000 to $25,000.
RCSD featured it's STEAM program at John Gill Elementary School.
RCSD values using technology to engage the minds of all students across content areas in the process of creating and constructing meaning
They visited classrooms in the STEAM and Mandarin Immersion programs on the John Gill campus as well as Kennedy Middle School and learned about the district's focus on equity in access to education, the sophisticated technology integration across content areas, enrichment opportunities, expertise in English language learning, and the innovative creation opportunities to make learning visible.
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.
