Callanan Middle School Reviews

By a Parent on

I really like Callanan.  Each teacher I have met (I had a child on the blue team and a child on the orange team) has been fanatastic and really cared about their students.  They were wonderful about returning e-mails when I had questions and were also fantastic when it came to helping me when my child was struggling with his grades.  During conferences, I really felt they cared about how my child(ren) were doing and gave good advice on how to turn things around, if need be.  I know my daughter is excited about going to Roosevelt, but is serious sad to be leaving Callanan.  Middle school can be tough on a child, but I think Callanan's staff knows how to be strong and supportive, which can be a tough balance sometimes.  Especially with kids that are not used to being on their own and responsible.  Thank you, Callanan, and keep up the good work!
