McKinley Technology High School is an application-based Title I school in the heart of Washington, DC. In 2012, the school received a Blue Ribbon School award from the Department of Education for drastic improvement in student performance. Mckinley's student population is 98 percent minority, with 92 percent of students proficient in math and literacy. A rare feat for urban schools.
