We are extremely proud of our ‘Home-School-Community' partnership at McKee School. We have built a collaborative culture based upon strong relationships and high quality instruction. Every member of the McKee community places a great deal of importance on these relationships to ensure the successful academic and personal development of all of our students.
McKee School offers programming from Kindergarten through to grade six. We also provide literacy intervention for some of our students at risk in the form of Reading Recovery and Levelled Literacy. Approximately half of our students receive some special needs programming in an inclusive setting. The majority of these students receive ESL support in the form of small-group instruction. Students in grades four, five and six receive instruction in French as a Second Language and at risk students receive Middle Years Literacy Intervention. McKee School is also a district site for Division l and Division ll Behaviour and Learning Assistance programming, spread out over three classes.
The Boys and Girls Clubs' Big Brothers and Big Sisters operate from within our school and provide mentorship to approximately 30 students. Students are encouraged to participate in Music, Art, Computer and Running Clubs, AMA Safety Patrols, Student Leadership and Youth Smoking Awareness. The strong relationships that we have with our community allow us to provide our students with authentic and relevant learning experiences beyond the regular classroom.
