It really isnt helpful they want us to succeed but they do a bad job of helping. The grading system is standard reference grading, and I think that its really bad and makes us students feel stupid. Like on a test if you get one wrong your approaching the standard, not meeting which you have to meet everything to do well I guess. But if you would have gotten one wrong in a normal grading system you would get a A. I also think there kinda extra when it comes to games. I use to play this one game in advisory and after school, I didnt play during class because I knew they would see and exit my tabs. But they blocked it. People are video chatting with strangers on these chromebooks and they dont block it, but if I wanna play run 3 or anything else, they block it. Im quiet I dont really like talking, Im lonely too. I remember last year, in seventh grade one of my teachers told the speech and language teacher that I dont talk and I had to take a speech test, like bruh I know how to talk. I know I might sound like a salty 13 year old but im bullied and made fun of here and Im failing classes, and Im kind of mad and sad about everything that happens at this school.

As an educator myself, I know that training for school personnel usually includes information on how to guide adolescents, including meeting them at their own developmental level, and by treating their adolescent issues, no matter how they seem to adults, respectfully. Somehow, though, McCracken's staff seems not to understand that. Their only desire seems to be to control thoughtlessly, and they do so with threats and by inducing fear. Ignoring the needs of adolescents to act like and be adolescents can, we know, cause trauma. It is not fair to expect adolescents to not be adolescents, and one would hope that schools recognize that. Since McCracken seems recalcitrant to change, we should all hope that the children damaged there will heal, and that those who were not damaged will learn from better role models in the future, and learn to treat others better than what they have seen.

"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!"
