Terrible principles are power crazy and treat children like criminals, no one cares what teachers they hire or how many rules teachers violate.

I started in as a transfer student from another state. The school system was three years behind what I had. No one wanted to use new vocabulary words or increase their vocabulary. My brother's and I were treated like outsiders. In high school I had a counselor tell I would never make a nurse. If I had believed him, I would not be a LPN and going on for my bachelor degree in nursing and made the Dean's list. This school needs major revisions.
McCreary needs to better prepare students for college. To much emphasis is placed on sports. More medical courses need to be added to currlickum for those students intending to major in the medical field.
