About McKenzie

McKenzie Elementary opened in 1979 and is named after Mr. E.S. McKenzie. We are a neighborhood school that feeds into McDonald Middle School and North Mesquite High School - GO STALLIONS!

We are home to about 400 students and 60 staff members. At McKenzie, we are ALL IN. We give our best every day and do whatever is needed for student success. This is the aim of every staff member and is shared by our students and families.

We are centered around positive relationships and student learning. 

It’s a great day at McKenzie...we’re ALL IN!
