McCracken County High School was one of the best experiences I have ever had. I came from the smallest of the three schools that consolidated to form McCracken a school of over 2,000 kids. McCracken was the place where I made my best friends, got to experience an amazing athletic environment, and got an amazing education. Throughout high school, I was involved in many programs that prepared me for my future such as the Biomedical sciences program, Coed Cheerleading, and National Honors Society, which gave me a perfect excuse to do community service such as volunteering at a therapeutic horse riding for kids with disabilities. The opportunities at McCracken are endless and the staff never fails to put a smile on my face. Overall, my experience at McCracken was the best high school experience I could have asked for.

McCracken County High School is a very great school, for the last 3 years I’ve gone to McCracken, it’s been the best 3 years. I am very proud to call myself a Mustang!
I am a basketball player at McCracken County High school. At McCracken there is a very diverse population because we combined 3 different high schools just 5 years ago. There are over 2,000 students in our school which brings a lot of different activities and clubs. It has been a very amazing experience so far at my school because I have been able to make new friends, explore opportunities, and learn from the people around me.
