This school is one amazing school. Everyone here is so nice. All the other comments in the past are saying this is not a great school. BUT BELIEVE ME, MCCRACKEN IS THE BEST.

McCracken Middle School is just like a private school. I am so proud that my children are and were part of this school. Administration and all the teachers are dedicated oriented people. Thank you for having all of you!

My children attended after having spent their early school years at the Waldorf school. I expected public school teachers to be less responsive than their former private teachers, but was wrong. They did care. This school has a world class music department. They just completed an addition with computer ...  Read more
