Background on James W. McGee
Our school is named after James W. McGee, a former Pasco School District teacher. “Education must entail those facets which develop the whole child”. This was the philosophy of James McGee. One that guided him through more than 30 years of dedicated teaching. He taught sixth grade in the Pasco School District for 21 years and was named Teacher of the Year in 1970-71. His career in Pasco began in 1958. He taught sixth grade classes here for the next 21 years.
James McGee Elementary School opened its doors for the first time in September of 1981. In May 2006, we celebrated our 25th anniversary at which time we dedicated our new bronze mustang statue. The student-body from the 2005-06 school year raised the money to purchase the mustang statue.
James McGee Elementary School is located on 11.7 acres of land (which includes the accompanying city park) with floor space totaling 45,000 square feet. In addition, sixteen portable classrooms are utilized with two new portable classrooms opening in the fall of 2012. The school has thirty five regular education classrooms, one special education classroom, 2 special education resource classrooms, a multi-purpose room, a gym, a library/media center, a music room, a computer lab and an office area. We also have The Boys and Girls Club of Benton-Franklin Counties on campus.
McGee is a safe, caring community where children learn the knowledge and skills needed to productively participate in society.
