Andrea McKinney

Principal of Gordon Elementary School
Welcome to Gordon Elementary School! We are very excited about the 2020-2021 Remote Learning school year. Here at Gordon School our highly qualified staff is dedicated to the social emotional health and academic achievement for all our students while creating a warm, safe environment for learning. Our mission is to provide an environment where staff & students discover their strengths, advocate for others, reach their academic and personal potential and embrace learning to develop college and career readiness skills.
We believe that a student’s elementary school experience is the foundation for life-long learning which is accomplished through partnerships. As parents, your participation and support of the learning process is welcomed and crucial in your child’s school success. We encourage you to help your child establish and stick to a routine, create a quiet space for learning, make sure they have any materials necessary to complete their assignments, read daily and check their homework.
At Gordon School we know “We Need You” because we are “Stronger Together”!
We look forward to getting to know you!
Please contact our office staff with any questions at 708-388-7202.
