    I went to this school for 3 years and sadly they are closing it down. They are making it Leddy school but the point is that everyone who went there loved it. The only thing that anyone didn't like was the school lunches but this is such a great school and i will miss it deeply. I hate the fact that it is closing down. Sincerly D.D.S. in group 73 2010

    Mulcahey is a great school It has great teachers and staff. it is to bad that they are closing it and coverting it into an elementery school. People now a days don't care about kids its all about there pay vs keeping schools open .I hope that one day Mulcahey will become a middle school again to serve it's origanal age group.

    The staff cares deeply about their students and works very hard to teach the curriculum. We very much want to see our students succeed and many staff go above and beyond in working toward that goal. We love our kids! I wouldn't work in any other school.

    I have a daughter who goes to this school and she loves it. This is a wonderful school despite other reviews. The teachers are very helpful and I am sad to see Dr Azar leave. Best of luck to him!

    I am a student at Mulcahey.Mulcahey is a very good school.It is now under new leadership and is on the road to sucess.There are many extra curricular activities if you chose to join.Children can do many activities such as Chorus Band Drama Club track ect.It is all in what you make it.

    I think that mulcahey middle school is the best school ever! I am glad that I attend that school! no other school can compare. no matter what parents adults or other people say Mulcahey is the Best!

    This school is the best school ever! It is fun and very serious. We have Artist of the Month when we pick our favorite artists (and kids DO like rappers!) and Eminem was one of them. Also it does not take a lawyer or a long time to get into special needs that is a really bad lie. We have great acticities here too and an honors program. Honors is the biggest class and even more are qualified! And don't be mad because we aren't one of those stuck up schools in Taunton! We are great and by the way have the best cheer squad in the city!

    This school is absolutley the best! And the teachers seem like the are fun but most of the time they do get very serious if we are good then we can get a little fun.

    School gets a bad rap. The students are taught in a very professional manner by the teachers. The facility is in good shape as well.

    My two daughter and son attended this school and I am so glad my daughter is gone. this school is run by the students. when they closed the other school a majority of the students came here. Nothing but trouble makers. We ahve since moved and for the most part the first two are o.k. my last child is still needing help to catch up to her grade level.

    I am starting to see that the last review is the truth about this school. Some of the teachers seem like they do not care One teacher has a poster of the rapper Emeniem on her wall. They talk in classes more than they are taught. And there is no school choice here in Taunton.

    This school is predominately low income students. it is violent and the teachers are far below satisfactory. special needs services well you need a lawyer to get them and it can take up to a year before they are in place. this is the truth! dont put your child here.
