    On behalf of our faculty and staff, I welcome you to McCracken Middle School. I invite you to look around, take a few moments to discover more about McCracken Middle School, Spartanburg County School District 7, and the many opportunities available to all our students.


    I am excited and honored to serve as principal at one of the finest middle schools in our state.  This level of excellence is no accident but is a collaboration of our committed faculty, involved parents, and supportive community partnerships.   As Principal, I am dedicated to serving our students, inspiring, and equipping them with the opportunities and resources to thrive as they journey through their middle school years and into high school and beyond.   At McCracken we believe in “Every Child, Every Day” and we pour ourselves into our craft for every child, every single day, as our future is dependent upon the success of each generation that comes through our doors.

    We are looking forward to working with you to ensure that this school year is a great success for our stakeholders. We take pride in our students, teachers, staff, and parents/guardians and the accomplishments we experience together.  By expanding the use of technology in the classrooms, project-based learning experiences and high level of rigor, our McCracken eagles can soar to new heights in a safe, welcoming, and collaborative learning environment. Together, as a team, we have embraced our responsibility to inspire and equip our students with the college and career-ready skills they will need as we move forward together.

    We encourage you to visit our beautiful campus and see that we are a school committed to children. We are appreciative of the strong partnerships formed with our community and stakeholders, and I look forward to working with you.

    If you have any questions, concerns, or comments, please feel free to contact me at 864-594-4457 or TEWoody@spart7.org


    Go Eagles,
    Dr. Telena E. Woody, Principal
