General McLane High School Reviews

It was a great school. The campus was sprawling, and nearly everything was state of the art, if not applicable to society today. The arts classes saw particularly good attention, with numerous art studios, and a fully fleshed out marching band and choir. Computer science was a little lacking, but the scientific field also saw considerable attention, with numerous supplies on hand for classes to work with. One of the teachers allowed for working with actual chemicals, provided all safety procedures were followed. I also never saw any issues involving bullying or other issues. All sports saw at least one club or team, With the football team being particularly prideful about. AP classes are also offered for college readiness. The cafeteria almost always had good food. Overall, I'm glad to have gone, and I'm glad my education was so well done.
