Cole Scott

I am honored to have the privilege to serve as the principal of McKinley Elementary School. The 2016-2017 school year will be my 12th year working in the Allentown School District as either a teacher or administrator. I have previously worked at Lehigh Parkway, Muhlenberg and Sheridan Elementary School.

We at McKinley Elementary are dedicated to working closely with families to provide a high quality, community based learning environment for our students. Through the use of the Leader in Me we aim to foster a generation of student leaders. I look forward to working closely with you as we strive to ensure your child’s academic growth in a safe and welcoming school environment. I encourage you to play an active role in your child’s education. Only by working together can we ensure all students reach their full potential.
