McCallie is not a mistake-free environment.
Boys mess up. Our job is to, whenever possible, teach them and help them to avoid repeating those mistakes. McCallie demands much from its students, but we recognize that teaching adolescent boys requires opportunities to redeem themselves, to learn from their mistakes, to improve. The front line of all academic experience is the classroom teacher, but we also provide outstanding outside-the-classroom academic resources and a stellar staff.
The Lebovitz Resource Center, also known as the Middle School Library, also serves as the center for academic counselors and tutors. Led by Middle School Academic Counselor Tammy Barber, the aim is to provide boys who are struggling to adjust to McCallie's expectations, need assistance in a particular subject, or need help in organizing and managing their school day.
The Middle School also has a full-time dedicated guidance counselor, Cindy McCroskey.
Lebovitz Resource Center
The Lebovitz Resource Center is located on the second floor of McDonald Hall and houses 8,000 volumes, 23 periodicals, a growing collection of DVDs and recorded books, all accessible through our library catalog. Of particular interest to parents is our collection of books on boys.
Fourteen networked PCs provide direct Internet access, and we subscribe to numerous ebooks and research databases. You may access many of these research databases from home; a list of passwords is available through Moodle. Network drops throughout the library and a wireless connection enable those with laptop computers to access the school network. For valuable information on research databases, citing sources, and search engines as well as information on resources for middle school projects, check Moodle.
Our Mission is to provide a welcoming atmosphere where middle school students and faculty can read, study and do research.
