Greetings from McNabb Elementary School!

Each day we humbly boast that “We are the Best” because we truly believe we are. From the amazing, highly-qualified teachers that cover every classroom, to the outstanding, well-prepared students who walk in our halls, we truly believe we have been granted the best of the best. Our cafeteria staff and our janitors make it a point to keep our facilities beautiful and our children well-nourished. Our classified teachers work hard to support the needs of every student throughout the building. Our nurse cares for the needs of each and every child that knocks on her door.

We are a community-family school that recognizes our responsibilities extend a lot further than our four walls.  The parents and siblings of our children are a part of our lives. We want them to feel at home when they enter our building. As a KYCID Banner School, our expectations are high, but our students continue to surpass the expectations set before them. Come be a part of us and make yourself at home.
