Craig County Public Schools would like to announce that both McCleary Elementary and Craig County High School are fully accredited.  The teachers and staff have worked very hard to move McCleary Elementary and Craig County High School out of school improvement.  Thank you to all teachers, staff, students and parents for a job well done.
