Welcome to McClure

James A. McClure Elementary was named for a prominent Topekan who distinguished himself in many ways. Professionally, he was a practicing attorney and a Shawnee County District Court Judge. For twelve years, from 1929 to 1941, he served as a member of the Topeka Board of Education. He was an instructor at Washburn University School of Law for several years.

McClure Elementary was completed in September 1962 and dedicated November 15, 1962. The school presently serves students in kindergarten through grade five. The building is located a few blocks south of Fairlawn Shopping Center at the corner of 25th Terrace and Chelsea.

McClure's mission is to prepare all students academically and socially to be effective citizens. We will ensure a sense of belonging for all in a culturally diverse society.
