School Reviews

  • Recommended September 26, 2007 - McCants Middle School is a well organized school that I would recommend to anyone new in the area. There is a wide range of academic programs, and many extracurricular activities from Coin Club to Football. The faculty is excellent and very friendly. Parent involvement is very high, but it is not required. Many academic and athletic awards have been given to McCants Middle School and its students and teachers. - Posted by Student/Alumni
