I've read the comments posted on this site, and I've engaged current and prospective parents in meaningful dialogue during my first 100 days as principal. I am committed to improving the quality of our instructional program and school spirit this year and for years to come. With a new school building opening in the 2012-2013 school year, and a renewed effort to reengage our students and community members, McClintock will become the premier middle school in Charlotte. I encourage the readers of these posts and parents considering McClintock as their home middle school option to come by for a tour before making judgements based on hearsay. Please come see what the Mighty Scots are all about.
An extremely diverse amount of students. But there does seem to be a displine problem at McClintock, there are several security guards that are often called to the classroom to deal with students.
This school has a very difficult time with disciplinary problems. There is no real reprecussions to the student's actions. They are allowed to do whatever to whomever. I think it is just a failure on the part of staff and the district not to do more. It is one thing to send a child home but, what is expected upon their return is another. There needs to be more hands on involvement of the Principal. She needs to visit classes, walk the halls and make her presence known to all the students. It needs to be a strong presence at all times because these students are adolescents and they are fighting to show who they think they are. It is a difficult task to say the least but the effort needs to be shown and supported by all staff. Division at this time is not what the students need.
