McHenry Community High School District No. 156 Reviews
The teachers here are OUTSTANDING! they care a ton about their students. I have not seen one exception. They are willing to do what ever it takes to help their students succeed. Whether that be staying after school and working one on one with them, or simply shooting them a "check in" email, I've seen the teachers, staff, and administration go above and beyond to meet each person's individual needs. Overall, the entire school (including the student body), is very well run, and I, personally, feel very comfortable at my school and enjoy the time I spend here.
I believe this school is a pretty nice high school in my opinion. I was raised in this community my whole life and even though it's not very diverse, I feel accepted and welcomed. The administration actually cares about the students and I can tell they take safety very seriously. The principal of East campus is the best principal I've ever had, he cares and listens to the student body and does what he can to help. The teachers are great if you are well behaved and I really enjoyed learning from a handful of them. I enrolled in many activities with the band and went to many sport games, and even though our teams are average and sometimes below average, the spirit is always high and we have great sportsmanship. I'm proud to be from McHenry in part because of this school.
As a school divided into two campuses, there is a distinct split in the personality. But in the end, forms one single school. East campus being a tad bit less wealthy, people tend to be more kind. Most students are nice and bullying is not really a common sight. Biggest con is some classes which can only be taught in one campus, in which a shuttle travel system has been created to solve. However, a referendum has passed that will turn West Campus into an upperclassmen Campus with most of the classes, and East Campus into a Freshmen only campus, as most freshmen only take the core courses. Making travel for them less likely of a problem.
