Andrea McKinney

Principal of Gordon Elementary School
We are so excited that you will be coming back to Gordon Elementary School this year. We made it through a challenging school year and I’m so proud of all the growth and achievement that our teachers, staff, parents, and students accomplished during that time!   

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 invite you to become an active participant in our school community through joining our PTA or attending and supporting school events. Research clearly supports that when parents/guardians participate and are involved in their child’s education, there is a greater likelihood of academic success for the child.    

We look forward to getting to know you! Please contact our office staff with any questions at 708-388-7202.
