McKinleyElementary School


Hello McKinley Families and welcome to the 2019-2020 school year at McKinley Elementary School! The entire staff and I are excited to be part of your child’s educational journey. Together, we will be able to support your child for academic success! I am committed to continuing the great work the school has done to provide high quality, community-based education for the students at McKinley.

On a personal note, I am proud to be the Principal of McKinley Elementary School. I may be new to many of you, but I have spent my entire career in the Allentown School District, starting as an art teacher at Harrison-Morton and Trexler Middle School, as an Assistant Principal at South Mountain Middle School, and in my previous role as Principal of Harrison-Morton Middle School. My experience as an educator for the past 21 years have prepared me to better serve the McKinley Families and Community. 

I am looking forward to an excellent year with you!


Mrs. Daria Custer,
