Dalton McMichael High School Reviews
Rating 3.23 out of 5 142 reviews
They care more about the football and volleyball team then they do the actual students. Everything is about popularity, meaning that if you're popular you can just about get away with almost anything. Also, most of the teachers don't seem to care about actually teaching students.
McMichael is overall a strong school, in my opinion. There is a variety of clubs and sports offered. One thing I think could be better is the teachers, though they are not terrible.
At Dalton McMichael there needs to be an improvement in how many teachers there are. Because of this the academics are not very good since there are not enough teachers for different classes. What I did like about the school is that the staff are really nice. In addition, the college advisor really tries to get students involved with college and scholarships. As for the counselors, they try there best to give each student the classes that they want. Everyone can improve at Dalton McMichael in order to make it a better school. The office administration is good at making sure that students are accounted for.
My experience at McMichael high school is very good, the four years I have been here I have had nothing but help from all of my teachers, some of the things that need to be changed would have to be the teachers just teaching notes the whole class period I feel like every teacher should be involved with the students and also the lunches need to be more healthy and no more processed foods.
The teachers at McMichael high school are always involved in helping the student grow, there are some teachers that are into basic power points and notes each class but most of the teachers actually engage themselves. There are some things that need to be changed and I feel like these are minor such as the lunches , I feel like students should be provided with a healthy meal.
I have been attending McMichael for four years. Both of my parents graduated from here including other family members. McMichael is an average high school that does provide lots of information about college and does everything they can to help us get ready for college.
Being a part of the STEM program has offered many opportunities other students may never get and I am glad I decided to join it, it has given me the chance to discover what I like and want to go to college to study and work with everyday and I couldn't have done it without the program.
The place is covered in mold that has been growing for several years and has caused many teachers and students to become sick. Teachers are leaving because of the way administration treats them and they are not hiring even teachers to fill the spaces left behind. Most of all the good teachers are gone and have found better opportunities. The administration does not care about their students and the few good teachers that are left are not ALLOWED to care about their students. One of the administrators in particular, Tonya Jones, has a tendency to look for reasons to get students in trouble. She is also the prime example of admin. not caring about students. The food is also terrible. Not only is it not good or have any nutritional value, it is reheated for days and they still run out of food for the students. Not to mention the long lines in the cafeteria make it impossible to get your lunch and still have time to eat in the small amount of time we get.
I like the Phoenix STEM (Science Technology Engineering Math) Academy. It has been my main focus for my four years at McMichael.
The one thing that I really like about McMichael High School is the people and the friends that I have made over the past few years. I am never going to forget the people that I met and where I came from. Also, the teachers were always very easy to get along with and always wanted the best for their students. I always felt like McMichael High School was the best school in Rockingham Country, especially based on academics. There really is not a whole lot I would change about my school. I love going there everyday to see my friends and to learn new things. The only thing I would change about the school is the mentality when it comes to football. I am on the football team and we are not very successful, but it is frustrating when no one believes in you. Also, the school spirit could be a little better. Other than that McMichael High School is a great place to go to and I really look forward to going there every morning during the week.
Bullying is the biggest activity going on at that school. Teachers don't care. Administrators definitely don't care. My daughter was bullied all four years of high school and nothing was ever done. She was bullied by a teacher! After the bullying from him, she reported him and got a week's worth of detention as he told administrators that she'd cursed at him. My daughter is still mentally suffering from her endless years of bullying.
Bullying could be stopped and food could be better. Classes werent that hard at all though. I had a 4.0 gpa and all honors classes and did great.
My experience at this school was amazing the teachers are great at what they do and I know they want me to succeed and push me to do my best and the staff and students are really nice
I loved my nursing class and the experience I received from it. I would like to see teachers performances change.
i was able to graduate early. Some of the teachers are really good. The Nursing Assistant class is really fun. Mrs Holder is a great teacher. The Nursing Assistant class became a huge family. I made decent grades here.
My experience with Dalton McMichael was delightful. Through my four years, I always felt comfortable. I feel I had a good relationship with the teachers, staff, and other students of the school. I was always provided with the materials I needed to understand what we were learning about. I also felt I was not only involved in my school but our community too.
So far, I have enjoyed my experience at Dalton McMichael High School. There is an overall positive learning environment, that makes school more inviting. There are many different academic programs that allow not only the students the ability to learn, but also the teachers. There are also many clubs ranging from the Spectrum club, to FCA allowing for a diverse group of students. The school administrators and athletic programs could stand to improve, but overall, McMichael High School is a great school.
