McPherson Unified School District Reviews

My experience at McPherson High School has been nothing less than excellent. The teachers and faculty all are welcoming and genuinely care about the students well-being. There are many teachers of mine that have gone out of their way to ensure that I am doing well in school and out of school. McPherson High School is a fairly small school and everyone knows everyone. I love the small, family aspect of the school. The administration cares a lot about students plans after high school, whether it be college or the work force, and they care for the well-being of the student athletes. McPherson High School overall is an excellent school to attend.

I have loved living in McPherson my whole life and attending McPherson schools. The teachers are super nice, they are welcoming to knew students, they put time and effort into what you what you want to do in your future, and they love to have fun with sports. Teachers usually try to come to your sporting events or anything you are involved in. No matter what they have always try to make it to at least one event of yours. High School has been the best experience I have had. Teachers and administrators care about you and sports. They love to be involved with your life inside and outside of school.
The McPherson School District has a well rounded educational atmosphere. The teachers are very willing to become involved in their students lives and want all of their students to learn. The sports in the district have an outstanding competitive and educational record. The fine arts is excellent, with many of the musicians being in the top of their class. This district takes pride in their students, faculty and staff, to ensure that the next generation is well educated.
