Best junior high in cheyenne. Which may not be saying too much. Im a former stundent a lot of the teachers and faculty where nice but of course theres those couple who are just mean except to kids they know outside of school. If you're different at all you'll be judged it really is a school where kids and teachers base oppinions on how you dress. More of a " jock prep" school. I felt the teachers weren't very one on one either. If you didn't stand out in their class they wouldn't pay attention to your learning. Otherwise good school.

The faculty is creating an atmosphere that reduces bullying and intimidation. This increases the ability of students to attend and concentrate on learning!

Best Jr high you can go to in Cheyenne. Students are better than the other jr high schools. Teachers are ok besides Mr. rainbow hes the best teacher you can have he really takes teaching to the next level. If you go to school and he still works there talk to him and see if you can get a class with him in it.

McCormick is awsome i go there and its pretty sweet. The principal lets the students(if they reach the standards he sets) throw pie in his face or he wears a dress. on the bad side its full of mostly snotty nosed kids who if you don't look or act a certain way, you just don't get to have friends. no respect if your 'different' it makes me mad.:P to morgan g. and nic c.

Dude i go there and unlike the other schools in the area, McCormick is not suffering from disiplinary actions like those at Johnson and Carey. We have very little fights and the teachers here rock. And dont even get me started about how cool our lunch ladies are. Lol im not even joking there cool.

Johnson is a wonderful with an amazing staff. Even though Johnson suffers from being the school in the 'rough part of town', it is by far the best school of the three. Because they have to work so hard with the student population served, the teachers make a real effort to teach to every kid. Nothing and nobody is taken for granted there.
