"Middle school at McCallie School was way different than my old elementary school. There wasn't a teacher hovering over your shoulder every step of the way. Starting from the second semester of 7th grade, you can be “exempt” which allows you to spend your study halls wherever you want. There is also much more variety in middle school; there are so many different electives you can take. There is truly something for everyone."

"There were so many people who surrounded me at McCallie. Meaningful relationships with coaches and teachers have stayed with me all this time. These men and women were good influences and good role models for living an upstanding life."

"We teach a lot of things in our music classes and some of it is music. Fundamentally, chorus is about working and bonding as a group. We also focus on developing our voices so we can give voice to issues and things we believe in."

"McCallie has been a place where we can laugh, cry, and grow. It is a home away from home, a second family. We have lived in a safe haven where it is okay to fail forward. There is always someone like a teacher, coach, or friend who’s happy to help you succeed."
