I personally loved my experience going to McAuliffe. I graduated several years ago, but many things I was taught there still stick with me. I used to remind many of my peers that most of the time, it isn't the school: middle school is supposed to be terrible for everyone. There's no way around it. However at McAuliffe, they do their best to shape their students into better individuals. The teachers there put so much time and effort into their work and they want their students to have the best possible opportunities. There is an extensive range of clubs as well as many sports offered. The school is smaller than the other middle schools in town, but it fosters a welcoming and tight knit community. Instead of regular "specials" (gym, music, art) they offer unique classes (Adventure, Wellness, and T4L2/Design) that are different every year. Not every loves this school, but I think that it is a wonderful opportunity to grow not just as students but as young adults.

Worth attending. You get more experiences here than at your hometown middle school. Plenty of field trips such as a community farm, whitewater rafting, a camping trip, even NYC. They are very big on hands-on learning. In the mornings instead of homeroom you have "crews" where a small group of students sit in a circle led by a teacher and talk about current events, any issues that need to be brought up, or mindfulness games. I don't know if they still do this but once a week they had a school wide meeting where students are allowed to stand up and say "Thank you's" or "Apologies" to anyone. Since it's smaller than the average middle school all the teachers know your name. Sure, there were the typical middle school "queen bees"and drama but I made more friends here than any other school I went to. Teachers are great in that they are there because they want to be there, not just to get paid. Yes I'd recommend McAuliffe.
It's tricky to rate because some teachers are great but many of them don't stay long. It has a great culture if your kid is quirky. But it is academically inferior to Framingham Public Schools with the exception of the very highest level of math class. I had two kids attend McAuliffe both were in the advanced math classes but not the highest level. Both academically suffered from bad math teaching: one from 1 yr of a bad teacher and the other from staff turnover (6 teachers in 2 years). It was ok for one kid even though he needed tutoring in math, because of the social environment. Not worth it for my other kid. To reassure me my daughter wasn't behind the rest of the class, the 8th grade algebra teacher told me that she had to reteach the entire class class the 7th grade math skills they needed before she could start on algebra. Obviously, sub-par teaching had occurred the previous two years. Be careful and thoughtful about sending your kid here.
