I unfortunately must agree with the negative comments. This is not the same school as it was in 2011/2012. I believe the change is due to having several new and inexperienced administrators who seem overwhelmed. These administrators also appear to be intimidated by the few marginal teachers they have. The school does have good teachers, but they do not have the attention of the administration. The focus is on these marginal teachers rather than even the students. It appears that the students don't really matter here anymore. I hope that they get things turned back around. It was such a nice school.
Well 6th grade was a nightmare, the homeroom teacher Campbell could care less about transitioning the kids. 7th grade has been better, but still a constant battle. The teachers are overloaded and when they make a curriculum change the school board isn't making sure that the teachers are prepared. The teachers don't communicate with one another at all about the workload.
I must say, "Is my child in the same school?" Because I have experienced nothing but apathetic teachers with no courtesy for the students or parents. They appear overworked and underpaid, therefore shotty teaching ability. I cannot wait to get my child out of there.
From the moment you walk into McClure Middle school, you can tell it is not your ordinary middle school. The kids open the door for you, the teachers smile, the atmosphere is happy. There is an high expectation for achievement and behavior at McClure that helps ready students for high school. It has a foundation of wonderful, caring teachers and a very strong administration who cares.
This is the best school and we have had a wonderful 2 years and are looking forward to 8th grade. The leadership of the principal and the teachers are top notch! We love our community!
I am a current teacher of 7 years experience in the field. I have taught in Fulton County as well as Cobb County. I have not found a student body, faculty, and principal that model Enthusiasm, Excellence, Ingenuity, and Encouragement to the caliber found at McClure Middle School. It is truly a great place to teach, slotted in a community that cares about the education of its children.
My son is in the 7th grade and in his 2nd year at McClure. This school is by far the best thing that has happened to us since moving to the area in the summer of 2008. The teachers are absolutely wonderful, caring, truly the most dedicated professionals we have ever experienced. Words cannot express my gratitude to these wonderful people, they are simpy the best!
i loved this school so much! i regret that i took advantage of staying that im going to one of the california school i wish i took pictures of all the wonderful things my friends and i did there. You would not regret taking your child to this school. I went there for 2 years but sadly i had to move. The teachers are great the extra curriculum activities are great matter of fact the whole school is great!
My child is SO happy at McClure. Her teachers are wonderful and so caring. If I need to get in touch with them, they always get back to me quickly. Wonderful counselors and staff.
Quite impressed with McClure Middle School. Overall, a great learning experience for my child.
Overall a good school. I don't like the fact I never see any grades come home. I understand and check on iparent. But, I want to see papers. How do I know what my child missed? Also, being a teacher myself, I have graded papers in error. Like I said overall it's a good school. They do need to work on communication!
Excellent school. My child was encourage to learn on a daily basis. She loves going to McClure. The parents are involved with the school.
I love my school. My friends are great. I am always learning. I feel like I can talk to my teachers about anything. It's a little strict on what we wear, but that's okay.
I go to McClure and everyday when my mom asks me 'How was your day?' I don't ever respond wtih 'good.' I always come back with a word like 'Amazing!' 'Wonderful!' Then, I tell her all about my day because I enjoyed every moment about it. All the teachers and staff are nice and encouraging. Everyone has a great day at McClure. You simply cannot help it!
I have 1 child presently in McClure and one that has graduated. This is a great school. Great administration and teachers. All staff care about children and put learning first. I moved my family because my daughter felt unsafe at her previous middle school. This school is very safe and my children are thriving.
Terrible experience requiring us to pull our student by the 4th 9 weeks.Consulting with guidance counselor during the year, verbal harassing led to physical threats. Repeated pleas by myself and my student resulted in nothing. Encourage your kids to talk to you and document dates and content of conversations with school personnel.
It's a great school - new so they are still trying to get a clear proces on things. Only 2 things that I think needs improvement is better homework help for the kids, and a homework hotline.
