Welcome to Alexander K. McClure School!
Message from the Principal
My name is Luis Garcia, and I am humbled and honored to be your child’s Principal. I come to you as a former student here at McClure. I grew up in this neighborhood and attended all schools nearby. The passion and energy for ensuring our children’s success today is still as strong as the Hunting Park days of my youth. My promise to you all is that I will continue to ensure that our vision remains intact and is stronger than ever.
Our overall goal is to instill in our children a lifelong love of learning so that they will become contributing and competitive members of our global society. We will work together to ensure that we close the achievement gap by preparing all students for college and career readiness and to perform at the proficient and advanced level of work. We will continue to provide consistent high quality academic instruction, in a safe environment that is conducive to learning.
In the meantime, I am looking forward to collaborating with you all with the ultimate goal of leading our students towards the road to success.
Mr. Luis Garcia (A. K. McClure School Class of 1982)
VISION STATEMENT/DECLARACIÓN de la VISIÓN
At McClure, we are committed to (un)learning behaviors, actions, and thoughts in order to ensure equitable access to learning for all students. We interrogate and dismantle systems of oppression in our conversations, actions, relationships, and in our practices and policies at all levels of power. We listen authentically and work in community to eliminate barriers and redistribute resources and opportunities that promote academic achievement to our most marginalized students and families. By sharing power, voice, and responsibility, all stakeholders will ensure that McClure becomes an anti-racist community.

Interrogamos y desmantelamos los sistemas de opresión en nuestras conversaciones, acciones, relaciones y en nuestras prácticas y políticas en todos los niveles de poder. Escuchamos auténticamente y trabajamos en comunidad para eliminar barreras y redistribuir recursos y oportunidades que promuevan el rendimiento académico de nuestros estudiantes y familias más marginados. Al compartir el poder, la voz y la responsabilidad, todas las partes interesadas se asegurarán de que McClure se convierta en una comunidad antirracista.
