    Objective

     

    Dear McKee Parents, Thank you so much for attending the January PTA Meeting. Your participation is critical to the school community! At the meeting last week, Ms. Henry shared news of an opportunity for McKee to present a wish list to one of Staten Island’s elected officials. After discussion, the parents agreed that we would provide an opportunity for all parents to weigh-in with thoughts about short-term and long-term goals/objectives/additions to the school. We further agreed, that time would be allotted at the February 11th PTA meeting for discussion of ideas. The objective is to provide a cohesive list of short term and long term goals that Ms. Henry can incorporate with her own as well as those of teachers for presentation to the official. Below you will find a brief survey designed to capture your thoughts. Please complete it by February 3, 2016.

  • Dyslexia Survey

    Thousands of students on Staten Island suffer from dyslexia and other language-based learning disabilities. For years, community advocates and parents have been asking for an educational option to meet the needs of these children.

     

    IMPORTANT SURVEY - Please take this brief, but very important, survey for a possible new public charter school on Staten Island for children with dyslexia, language-based learning challenges or who struggle to read. Please SHARE THIS LINK with others - we are looking for as much parental and community input as possible. THANK YOU!

Benefits

Learn More Here. Whether your dream is to someday design the most iconic building on Staten Island, to start your own business, to join Local 20, or to become the very first member of your family to graduate from college, you will learn more here at McKee, and with what you learn, no matter how big and bold your dreams, you can achieve anything.

Experience a Private School Environment. Blending carefully managed class sizes, passionate and committed faculty, spotless and spacious and secure school grounds, and highly sophisticated classroom technologies, McKee is as close to a private school learning environment as you can experience on Staten Island without actually enrolling in a private school.

Go to College. McKee provides you with the academic knowledge, study habits, onsite learning resources, self-discipline, and one-on-one guidance to not only prepare you for college – and to win scholarship dollars as you do – but to help you shine once you get there.

Start Your Career. Our faculty – experts in industry and born teachers – methodically work with students to equip them with the real-world skills and certifications to intern, apprentice, and eventually start a career in fields as diverse as engineering computer-aided drafting, construction technology, electrical design and installation, graphic arts advertising, automotive technology, and software engineering, giving you a head start few of your peers on Staten Island can even imagine.

Think for Yourself. Armed with the fundamentals they learn in the classroom and empowered by the skills they acquire outside of it, McKee students are self-confident, independent thinkers who leave our campus in the revitalized neighborhood of St. George ready to make their mark in college, industry, and life.

Be More Than A Number. Beginning with the first day of school, McKee’s faculty and staff will get to know you – we’ll know your name, where you’re from, what’s going on at home, how you learn best, where you struggle, your friends, the music you listen to, your hopes and dreams, and more – all of which means you’ll never be just a number at McKee . . . never.

Skills

We Engage. McKee faculty meaningfully engage each of their students as young people, not just students, because we understand that while teaching and testing are important to cultivating a young mind, truly knowing and appreciating a student from the inside-out is as fundamental to their individual development as anything that can be taught from a textbook.

We Inspire.  More than just authority figures who lecture from the front of a classroom, McKee faculty leverage their expertise, experience, passion, and personalities to inspire students to discover and embrace the successful learner/brother/sister/friend/leader/team mate/colleague/citizen lying within each of them.

We Nurture. McKee faculty proactively collaborate with one another to ensure every student has an advocate, a plan, and a future, as we recognize that sometimes the only thing between a life of achievement and one of frustration for a young person is a teacher that quietly – without fanfare – takes personal responsibility for an individual student’s success, and then gets them there.

We Look Ahead. McKee’s administration is continually exploring, evaluating, and implementing learning innovations, best practices, and local business partnerships to better position students of nearly all abilities for personal growth and academic and professional success.
