General McLane High School Reviews

178 reviews
All Categories
After withdrawing from the university I initially attended after high school, I took a year-long break. The academic experience disillusioned me. I am now a junior at a private liberal arts college, studying a passion high school teachers nurtured in me-- English. I'm still not sure what the "real world" is, exactly. It seems to take on different forms. The transition from closely monitored activity to self- and peer-directed groups and communities has been stressful and disappointing. Accomplishing extracurricular goals takes more initiative, perseverance, and convincing than I was led to believe. It's challenging to motivate students to show up to activities, let alone engage. Aside from that, academics are not as rigorous as they were in high school, but they do require deeper thought and consideration. I felt prepared to take on my professors as mentors because of the personal bonds I established with my high school teachers.
Review General McLane High School
At General Mclane, the teachers are the best possible quality they can be. Their styles are all uniquely different, and they all have an incredible amount of knowledge of the area they teach in. They have exceptional communication skills, and intereact well with the students on a regular basis.
Our extra curricular activites are some of the best in not just the area, but both PA and nationally, as well. Our music program is widely considered the best in PA, recieving many nominations for grammy awards. Also, our sports are some of the best as well, as we are the only school in PA to win both the PIAA football and basketball championships in the same year (2006).
