    "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. The teachers are amazing and what's great about this school is that it's only 3 grades and its not a lot of grades. Everyone here understands each other and cares for each other. No matter what other people have said in the past, but Mccracken Middle School is the best middle school. Every parent will want to send their kids here. Plus, there isn't anything like popular and unpopular everyone here is treated equally. So if your a new "new kid" you will fit in to this school very fast. Everyone here will give you a very warm welcome. So keep the students coming please!"

    "After a great 5 years at Middleton Elementary, I expected a great 3 years for my child at McCracken. The first year was not so great. The "Academy Level" students are favored. The music and band programs are excellent, but if not involved in these, you are invisible. The state test scores, as important as they are, take precedence over invidiual performance and success. An A student, doesn't get the opportunity to get into advance classes, because she didn't score high enough on tests. No opportunity to improve. The majority of the teachers are good, and a few go above and beyond. However, bullying and inappropriate PDA happens in the halls and the classrooms without notice. The parent rating is the lowest, since if parents kept involved, perhaps the school wouldtake better notice."

    "This school has failed to meet guidelines for adequate yearly progress. Over the past six years that I have had minority children in this school, they and I have been very aware of the often unkind, exclusivity to which "outsiders"(anyone with any kind of different background) are subjected. A recent survey published in the local paper states that over 50 percent of the students consider bullying or teasing to be issues here. The leadership to address these academic and social issues just does not seem to exist at this school. Communications about these types of problems go unanswered, and they are not addressed."
