This school is THE BEST. I went to charter from 6th grade to 8th grade, not wanting to go to fuller (because fulller isn't really what every middle schooler should go to) the expeditionary learning is amazing! the field trips are everlasting memorioes the teachers are just OUTSTANDING they make a bond with you! you make bonds with them! it's hard to come to charter and see a frown on a students face because it's just that amazing, honestly there arent cliques, and the popula girls and the poplular guys, we're all one big family here. i graduated in 2010, and am proud to say i graudated from a charter school, mcauliffe leaves a memory on you, and even though middle schools don't have reunion the class of 2010 will defintly have one, just because of how much frienships were made and how happy we all were. This school is great. send your children here parents! i'm not joking, i was so scared on the first day of school, but this school changes you, it brings the BEST our of your kids, and the academics? high standard. this whole school is amazing.
