In September of 2014, Money Magazine ranked McKinney as the #1 Best Place to Live in the country! Well, a major reason for that would have to be the highly acclaimed McKinney Independent School District, which boasts numerous awards and achievements. Among these praises, the district has received State Comptrollers Gold Designation or better, year after year.
With several campuses awarded the National Blue Ribbon and named on the NCEA Higher Performing Schools list, McKinney ISD students score well above the national averages in SAT/ACT testing.
As one of the fastest growing school districts in the state, McKinney Independent School District serves education to more than 24,000 students in the communities of McKinney and New Hope. Sections of Allen, Fairview, Weston, Princeton, Lovejoy, and Lowry Crossing are also served within the district.
McKinney ISD is comprised of 20 elementary schools, five middle schools, and three high schools. In addition, Lawson Early Childhood School provides Pre-K curriculum to many soon-to-be scholars, developing the “academic, social, and emotional foundations necessary to foster each child’s full potential as a life-long learner.” The district also offers four alternative-education schools.
The high schools in the district are as follows: McKinney High School, ranked #47 (Gold) on the 2014 U.S. News & World Report High School Rankings in Texas; McKinney Boyd High School, ranked #53 (Gold); and McKinney North High School, ranked #55 (Silver). While the middle schools include: Cockrill MS, Dowell MS, Evans MS, Faubion MS, and Scott Johnson MS.
