McKinney Independent School District Reviews

I moved to Mckinney my Sophomore year of high school and went to Mckinney Boyd for three years. The way I saw school completely changed as soon as I started at Boyd. I was able to be a part of the GT program and got to take English/humanities and history classes that were relevant, interesting, beneficial, and challenging. My teachers were always excited to help their students succeed and used every resource possible to help us learn. Each student got a school-issued MacBook that was used in almost every class for research, assignments, and activities. The access to the technology sped up the learning process so much because we could use the internet to fill in understanding gaps, easily access textbooks and documents, keep track of our grades, and turn in assignments efficiently.

As a senior in college, I am proud to say I received all of my pre-college education from the city of McKinney.

The schools are extremely well kept, equipped with wonderful faculty, and most importantly, they prepare you for college.

My mom worked for the Languages Other Than English (LOTE) department of the district, and I can assure you that they do everything they can to accommodate to every students needs in order to get the most out of their education.

My only wish is that the city would have decided to not forgo the construction of the $70 million stadium. As someone who played on that field all four years of high school, I believe that decision was completely unnecessary and that the money could have been better spent on the schools themselves (technology, more classes offered, etc). However, this is more of a city decision rather than the district itself!
We have had a wonderful experience at MISD! My daughter started at Valley Creek as a first grader and continued to Faubion Middle School. I had my doubts at the begining, but after getting to know the teachers and the administration I was very pleased. My daughter is a Junior at McKinney High and is very happy there. Thank you MISD for taking care of our children in every way.
