 We are dedicated to raising the standards and expectations of our students at Walter T. McKee Middle School. A uniform code of dress will teach our children to dress for success, as well as enhance the culture and climate of the school. When they look good, feel good, and behave appropriately, their performance in and out of the classroom will greatly improve. Parents, we need you support! Together, we can make our school a safe and a productive learning environment for all students.
