Meet Our Tartans

McKinley, Grade 12

Meet McKinley, graduate of the Class of 2016, who came to St. Margaret’s in Kindergarten and is now a college freshman at Stanford University. Follow McKinley through the course of her everyday as a senior at St. Margaret’s. Visit her classes, sit in on varsity basketball practice and observe as she stage manages the Upper School play. McKinley’s ‘everyday’ is just one student’s path through the wealth of program and curriculum opportunities, experiences and support available to our students so they can discover, explore, learn and grow.
"I am motivated to succeed by teachers and classmates who genuinely want to know me and challenge me to my full potential."
