McDonald County R-I School District Reviews

It is a great school, full of great people who really care for each student. Every teacher, counselor, and staff member is more than willing to go out of their way to help a student. Every teacher I have ever had was great about helping and making time for students if they needed extra help. I am incredibly grateful for all of their efforts and kind hearts. When I started here my freshman year, I was intimidated by the size and endless possibilities of highschool. But if you are willing to put yourself out there, staff and the large portion of the student body are always welcoming and kind. I have met the largest majority of my friends at this school, and without it I would not be the person I am today.

McDonald County R-1 School District really helped me get through a rough four years. The staff, teachers, were always available when you needed them and always helped in any way they possibly could. My experience was excellent because their was always something going on at that school. Whether it was sports, band, assemblies, they managed to squeeze that in their. Teachers knew their subject and always taught it in different ways so everyone understood what was going on. If a student still didn't understand they would figure out another way to teach it. Those are reasons why I wouldn't change anything at McDonald County. I believe they are on the right track and they know what they are doing.
I feel McDonald County R-1 School District has many bright aspects.This community based school system creates a great, homey environment for students coming together all over the county. Everyone is treated like family, despite race or home life, which we have a wide diversity of. The overall atmosphere of our district is upbeat and relaxed. The only things I would want to see changed are evaluations of teachers. I feel all teachers need to be held accountable and held to the same standards as others.
