About Us

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.

Mrs. Ducharme

Mrs. DuCharme "Being a music teacher is such a rewarding job. I have the privilege of sharing my passion and love for music to my students. I am able to teach them about composers, how to read music, play musical instruments and to appreciate music of all forms. Nothing brings me more joy than having my students sing Broadway, jazz, rock and gospel/spiritual music and absolutely loving the music!"
