McLean County Public Schools Reviews
Mclean County School is a wonderful school. There is something about a small school that feels like you are part of a family. The teachers, staff, and counselors are so helpful there. I am on the basketball team and the coaches are absolutely amazing. The staff here really cares about each students specific need. I am dyslexic and they work hard to help me with my accommodations. They want every student there to succeed! This is one of the reasons I want to become a physical education teacher and a coach. I hope I can make a positive impact on the kids I teach and coach. We need more teachers and coaches that really care about the future of their students.
One thing I love about McLean County Public Schools is that at the high school, students are available to take college classes. McLean County offers a handful of dual enrollment classes, where you take classes at the high school that counts as a college credit. The other part I love is that they allow their students to take classes at the local community college, Owensboro Community and Technical College. This allowed me to already have a year of college by taking classes in high school. This also has a downside though, because you can only take these classes if you can drive yourself or carpool. Again, with many of our students coming from low-income families, this is hard to do, that is why many people can't take advantage of this service. While we have about 500 students in our school, I graduated with 110, we are not diverse. There are only a handful of people of color, and conservative beliefs are often shared there.
It’s a small, tight knit community. The classes are small and make for a good learning experience. Funding limits the experience here.
