Welcome to McCracken Middle School, home of the Eagles. McCracken has a long history of providing a world class education to our students. We have a dynamic staff of teachers committed to excellence in education. I am so proud to call McCracken Middle School my home and I consider it an honor to serve as Principal.
Middle school provides students with the foundation necessary for success in high school. We take this job very seriously and work to provide your child with engaging learning experience steeped in research based best practices, many excellent arts related experiences, outstanding athletic programs, clubs and extra-curricular activities, and many leadership opportunities.

Gallup Research Kick Starts Conversation in District 7

Gallup Research Kick Starts Conversation in District 7
Dr. Tim Hodges, Director of Research with Gallup spent time in Spartanburg and the District speaking about hope, engagement, and well-being, and how measuring those outcomes can strengthen student readiness for learning.
Last year the Gallup Student Poll found that while 54% of the children surveyed felt hopeful, 46% feel stuck or discouraged about the future. Hodges noted, “That is real cause for concern.”
Next week D7 will administer the 2014 Gallup Student Poll to 1800 children in grades 5-12 with 20 questions like: “Did you smile and laugh a lot yesterday?”, “Is there an adult in my life who cares about my future?”, and “Is my school committed to building the strengths of each student?”
We believe this important feedback will help us improve hope and engagement and enable us to better prepare our students for college, career, and life.
Gallup is providing this Poll free of charge.
