Welcome to McClure Elementary School!

Our school serves students in Grades Pre-K – 5th grade in the Hunting Park section of North Philadelphia.  McClure represents a diverse population of students, staff, parents and community members who work collaboratively to foster high academic achievement and positive social interactions.  As the principal, I am committed to leading the shared mission and vision of our school to ensure our students are on the path to college and career readiness.  I look forward to learning and collaborating with you!
