McKinley Primary Center was named after William McKinley, the 25th President of the United States. President McKinley's paternal grandparents lived for a short time in South Bend and are buried in the City Cemetery. This was the first school construction in South Bend after World War II. The present school replaced a wooden structure of the same name which had existed on the site since 1930. A new addition was added to the school in 1972. McKinley serves over 400 students in kindergarten through 4th grade.

Teacher of the Year 2017
McKinley's
 Teacher of the Year
2017-2018

Mrs. Amy McGlothlen
Art and Gym (1st-4th)


"I love teaching because I love seeing the look on student's faces when they "get it".   I love seeing the growth student make from the beginning of the year to the end of the year.  One of my favorite things about teaching is when students come back and see me years after I've had them in my class and tell me that I was one of their favorite teachers because I cared and believed in them."

"I am so honored and grateful to be chosen as Teacher of the Year. "
