Our Vision: McCullough Middle School is challenging students to be academically, socially and technologically prepared for high school and beyond.

Our Motto: Believing, Persevering and Succeeding

The McCullough staff is committed to the Colonial School District goal: “Improving the Academic Achievement of All Students.” At McCullough Middle School, we provide many opportunities for students to succeed and offer an inviting school environment that facilitates the intellectual, physical, emotional, and social development of children. We hold fast to the idea that learning encourages success and that assessment, including self-assessment, is a critical part of learning. We realize that students have multiple intelligences that need to be recognized and nurtured, and students learn by taking risks in a student-centered, accepting environment.
