We asked a few students what they love best about Ms. Stacey’s kindergarten class and here's what they had to say:
AN INDEPENDENT PRIVATE SCHOOL IN SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH FOR KINDERGARTEN THROUGH 8TH GRADE
At The McGillis School, we inspire and prepare our learners for a lifetime of creating a better world.
This day of service will provide our entire community with the hands-on experience of planting trees that will immediately impact our climate and community as well as be a meaningful way to honor our 30th anniversary.
Service Learning at McGillis is a way for our students to engage in experiences that promote self-awareness, increase communal engagement, and to create a sense of community by doing.
As one of the Founders of the Jewish Community Center Elementary School, now The McGillis School, I have so many wonderful memories of Joanne I wouldn't know where to begin.
Sarah Davies, our School Psychologist, joined us to talk about when is the right time to get your child a smartphone or smart device and what a big decision this is for parents.
At McGillis, I learned how to learn. I learned that I didn’t have to know everything when I encountered a new situation – I just needed to know how to ask questions, when to listen, and ultimately, to believe that I was capable of mastering something new.“

The McGillis School provided me a foundation for sustained academic success in high school and now college. Most importantly, it taught me to never stop seeking out knowledge and to never stop learning."

McGillis is different because community really matters and the mission is at the forefront of everything we do. Taking the time to stop, actively listen and support children is what all teachers at McGillis excel in. Caring and kindness matter."~Suky Stewart, Teacher
Academically, McGillis helped to prepare me to go to an elite liberal arts college by teaching me how to write eloquently, read carefully, and think critically about pressing issues. Even more valuable, McGillis taught me about being a good person and set me up to be successful in school and in life."
