As we were considering moving across the country for jobs in Utah, an important priority for us was finding a school that would nurture and support our children and would provide a community for us as a family. Our visit day at McGillis sealed the deal, and we have not looked back. We are so grateful to McGillis for welcoming us into the fold.
When you enter the hallways of McGillis, you know it is different. There is a celebration of each child as a unique individual and an investment in each child to be their very best selves. Just as importantly, there is a prioritization of the community, which teaches our children to think beyond themselves. As we have pivoted to COVID, the value of McGillis has never been clearer. Our children have benefited greatly from in-person education, and we felt incredibly confident with the safety measures and the transparent communication during this time. We are new to The McGillis School, but we already consider ourselves Forever Magpies!"
Melissa & Kevin Watt, parents of Jonah '22 & Sarah '26
Stories unite us. They create connections and foster a greater understanding of ourselves and others
Anniversaries offer an opportunity to reflect on our past and reflect on the future. As we celebrate the 30th anniversary of The McGillis School, throughout the year, we will be “looking back” and honoring our beginnings by sharing stories, reflections, milestones, and memories.
At McGillis, the Jewish holidays create a rhythm for our year. Each of the fall holidays provides us with annual life lessons that aid us in being our best selves.
Please join us in welcoming Nicole Henderson, Britta Joslyn, Dana Powers, Jill Saxton Smith, Darren Smith, and Madeline Tank to our kehilah!
