I love McFarland! It's a small town, but it's filled with so many amazing teachers, friends and community members! As far back as I can remember, I loved Waubesa (3rd-5th), I loved Indian Mound (6th-8th), and I loved High School. So many great memories have been made throughout my years of going to school, and a huge thing for me is athletics. We have amazing programs with the best coaches and an awesome athletic director. I am so grateful to have gone to McFarland!

At a glance, McFarland High School seems like a fine school. Our teachers are educated and impressive, our students are smart, and a beautiful and enormous new auditorium was recently built for a variety of purposes. However, most students who go to this school (including myself) wouldn't put such a positive spin on the situation. Yes, we spent a lot of money building a new auditorium, but that money would have been better spent elsewhere, such as raising the teachers' salaries. The school has teachers who love to teach the students, but there has been a sudden influx of teachers leaving. More than four teachers left in the last year alone, and even the vice principal has been replaced. The most common complaint from the students is how they dislike the administration. Their decisions often seem naive, or at best aimed towards goals that aren't improving the school for the students or staff. However, many of the complaints are fairly biased, no school is without its flaws.
McFarland High School District is a school where I can be myself and take steps to prepare for my future career. This school also encouraged me to work hard and provide support for my future goals. The teachers are very understanding and supportive when teaching and bring out great opportunities for students to study. Although this school is less diverse, it is rich with opening-up programs and clubs that focus on diversity and culture. The students are very inclusive of different groups of students. I love how this school brings out awareness and their ideas of opening a class that involves culture and ethnicity. This school shows a great atmosphere and many opportunities are wide open.
