Principal's Message

  • Picture of principal Ryan Weiss-Wright

    Dear McAuliffe Parents and Families,
    Every day at McAuliffe we strive to find new ways to connect students to school through the 4 A's (Academics, Activities, Athletics, and the Arts). We have a packed schedule! We want all students to have an opportunity to find something they are passionate about and find ways to pursue their interests in high school, college, and career. We believe that a student's middle school years are essential building blocks for self-discovery!
