Programs & Awards
McClure serves all elementary grade levels from kindergarten through fifth grade. We currently house approximately 700 students. With children, education, and excellence as our focus, we see to empower all students to dream, discover, and develop their potential as lifelong learners and leaders. We use purposeful experiences and community partnerships that engage the heart, head, and hands and in doing so we have succeeded in showing the students that one person can make an enormous impact in the school and in the community.
Extracurricular activities allow students to become involved in specific areas of interest and to apply what they are learning in school to this activity. Student involvement in these programs helps develop well-rounded students while building self-esteem and self-discipline. They will carry these skills with them long after graduation as they transition into higher education and career pursuits.
