This year was my first year at Mccleskey and truthfully, I loved it! (Although I am pretty eager for summer!) The classes were enjoyable with lots on hands on activities and most of my teachers were awesome! The only thing that I could think of that would be a nice change is...the school food. The school is truly a great enviroment to be in! GO MCCLESKEY! :)

My Son finished up at McCleskey this last school year. They now have a new Principal Dr. Chris Richie who is outstanding and has really made nothing but positive changes thus far at this school. I'm only disappointed the change wasn't made a lot sooner. Good things will becoming from this school... including higher test scores, etc.

This school has the worst Morale is very low at this school. When the Principal speaks no one listens at all! We need a new principal now!

My Granddaughter started the 6th grade, 2004-05 year. She had butterflies despite her 4 adults (Parents and Grandparents) telling her that she always felt that way when starting something new. End of the first day she was feeling better. At the end of the 3rd day, she said she felt like she had been there for a 1000 years. She loves the lunch room; the food was cooked and warm. She thinks her teachers are nice. She loved everything about the school. Congratulations to the principal and the entire staff for providing such a nice school environment and helping the new students settle in so successfully.

My son and daughter have attended McClesky and I have to that I thrilled. The teachers have worked with my children. Particularly with my son who has struggled with his foreign language. This teacher has been nothing but superb with her teachings. The principal currently beyond my expectations along with his faculity, i.e. Ms.Moran. Have had others outside my household to follow his prerecorded messages to parents as well as students with valuable information. Keep up the good work to all..
