My experience at Eleanor Mcmain has been great for all four years. The teachers, students, pep-rallies , academic awards meetings, dance team, football and basketball games, etc have all contributed to my high school years. The learning environment has gotten better over the years. Mcmain has taught me how to be a leader and that having my own voice matters.

Eleanor McMain Secondary School was one of my most favorite years of being in High School. If I could do it all over again I would. Outside of academics, I felt like personally the teachers really cared for my well being. The teachers would usually prepare us in ordinary school fashion. However, I often felt like there were WAY too many administrators walking the hallway just there waiting to punish a individual. The rules are so strict, that you might think you are in a military school. With a no cell phone policy, and a definite uniform policy this school can give you a hard time. Other than those gripes, I feel like the school would change for the better if they loosened up a little bit, give students their own identity and purpose, instead of punishing them for being themselves. Overall, with those few gripes I enjoyed my year being at this school along with my fellow classmates of the class of 2018.
I like the diversity of the kids at this school, they all come from different parts of the city but know when to come together as a team. One thing that I wish would change is how the we deal with authority and consequences. Also having more ACT readiness practice in earlier grades instead of starting in 11th grade. Also more clubs other than sports because not everyone wants to play a sport.
