Welcome to McGill Elementary School (MES) (established 1962). MES is a small community school located in historic McGill, NV (Pop 905) which in turn is located in beautiful White Pine County. The town of McGill itself was established as a mining town and had an ongoing smelter operation until 1983. Currently there are many retired people who enjoy the small town lifestyle while many others work at the mine in Ruth or at the state prison or in many of the other jobs available in the county seat of Ely.115

MES currently has one class per grade level, pre-k through 5th, with a current enrollment of about 120 students. The school is noted for being a family friendly, community oriented school. We are a Leader in Me school which means that we teach the 7 Habits of Highly Successful People to our students. These habits include; Be Proactive; Begin with the End in Mind; Put First Things First; Think Win-Win; Seek First to Understand, Then to be Understood; Synergize; and Sharpen the Saw.
