Whether you are familiar with The McGillis School or are learning about us for the first time, we hope you feel the sense of community and purpose to inspire individuals committed and able to repair the world. 

Thank you for your interest in The McGillis School!


McGillis is brimming with possibilities, and community is at the heart of everything we do. We inspire and prepare our community for a lifetime of creating a better world. We believe choosing the best school for your child also means finding the best partnership for your family.


McGillis students in kindergarten through eighth grade have the opportunity to thrive academically while learning the importance of productive group dynamics and social responsibility. Central to our core mission is providing learning experiences which empower children to become engaged and enthusiastic learners.


The McGillis School is built on the premise that diversity, equity, and inclusion matter. As a school founded on Jewish values, culture, and history, we believe a diverse, inclusive community is essential to a rich educational experience, and we support each person in our community to reach their full potential.  


As we get to know one another, we hope it is obvious that we are more than just a place to learn; we are a community. Families are drawn to McGillis for a variety of reasons, and following are several quotes from current families:














If the McGillis difference resonates with you, we invite you to take the next step by attending our virtual open house or by applying.


I look forward to getting to know you.
