Welcome to McKnight Elementary School—"A Big School with a Bigger Heart!" We are a K-5 building of approximately 825 students set between the business corridor of McKnight Road and the neighborhood of McCandless. We pride ourselves in giving students opportunities to grow academically and socially while providing supports to families.
Our school theme this year is, “When Things Aren’t Going Right, Go Left” based on the book by Marc Colagiovanni and illustrated by the Peter Reynolds which shows that sometimes we need to put down our worries and take a different path to find our strength.
Our fully renovated school features a full-size gymnasium, a state-of-the-art library, a maker space, dedicated art and music classrooms (including strings and band), new playgrounds, and a Nature Trail. We take great pride in our arts as a vehicle for students to display their growth.
At McKnight, our students drive our passion for success! We invite you to experience the learning community and family that is McKnight Elementary.
We look forward to a successful and exciting school year. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or would like to experience all the great things McKnight has to offer. We greatly value the input from our parents and community.
