Welcome to the McDonald Elementary School Web Site. We hope you will find it helpful.McDonald Elementary School is one of three elementary schools in the Centennial School District. It is located at the intersection of Street Road and Reeves Lane in Warminster, Bucks County, Pennsylvania. Everett. A. McDonald Elementary School is the namesake of Dr. Everett A. McDonald, the first Superintendent of the Centennial School District. Dr. McDonald was a caring and talented educator, a graduate of Yale University and an innovative leader. In 1964 he was the driving force behind the construction of the first building which was comprised of four interconnected circular buildings and two rectangular wings. The original design consisted of a gymnasium/auditorium and cafeteria connected by a stage, classrooms with special features for the physically challenged, a library, a planetarium/special experience room and a swimming pool.
In the spring of 2010, the Centennial Board of School Directors voted to combine Longstreth and McDonald Elementary Schools beginning the 2012-13 school year.
Today, the newly constructed McDonald Elementary School houses a little more than 800 kindergarten through fifth grade students, including students from the district’s special education programs. We also offer an array of support services for English Language Learners (ELL), gifted students and students needing remedial reading and math. Homework Clubs and before and after school care enable parents to fulfill their responsibilities, secure in the knowledge that their children are safe. Our Home and School Association is active and generous in supporting us with the resources we need to continue many excellent traditions.
We are proud of our school, students and staff. We invite you to visit us during American Education Week held in November of each year. If you would like to visit our school at another time, please call for an appointment.
