Welcome to McKinleyville Union School District (MUSD)!  Our district is made up of three schools including: Dow’s Prairie which serves students in Transitional Kindergarten through 2nd grade; Morris Elementary which serves students in 3rd through 5th grades, and McKinleyville Middle School which serves students in 6th through 8th grades. Our schools have a long history of providing an excellent educational program for our students.  The district formed in 1951 with a union between Washington School District and Dow's Prairie School District.  Since that time, there have been eight different superintendents serving the students, staff and families of our great community.  I am honored to join this great district as the ninth superintendent carrying out the vision of the district ~ a community committed to maximizing every student’s success!

All three of our schools are award winning schools.  McKinleyville Middle School has been on the Schools to Watch list for the past twelve years.  Morris and Dow’s Prairie have both earned Distinguished Schools Awards with Dow’s Prairie also being designated as a Blue Ribbon School.
