Ernest McBride HighSchool was an enjoyable experience. From the helpfulness and sincerity of the staff and teachers to the fantastic educational equipment provided to students. This school is among the small category of institutions that care for and try there best to accommodate to every student. The dedication set forth by the faculty set a standard for how the students learned, creating a stronger bond between the students and their learning experience. I'm so grateful to have been apart of such a beautiful learning community during my short four years attending, but I can state that I wouldn't have changed it for the world.

Fairly new school; going into its fifth year. 2017 had its first graduating class. The school is based on three pathways (Health Medical, Engineering & Criminal Justice). As a high school student, you are afforded the opportunity to take college-level courses geared towards your major while completing your High School Graduation requirements.
With the exception of clubs and a few intramural sports, there are no other extra curriculum activities (I.e. Dance, Music. Band, Water Sports, etc.) It is highly recommended that you consider getting involved in a sport or activity in your spare time.
On a brighter note, the school is quite small with a friendly and inviting atmosphere. Beautiful campus located in a nice area.
Coming from a large middle school (Hughes), McBride was a bit of a culture shock. Also, coming in during only their second year being open, things were kind of crazy. Now, as a senior, everything has calmed quite a bit. Go here if you like small schools, if you like one-on-one direction. The English department, if you stick with APs and such, is absolutely amazing. ((Shout-out to Mr. E- the best teacher I have ever had)). This is a hard school- so keep that in mind, know that you will take APs, know that the teachers actually care and will work with you- and you will be fine.
