Louise S. McGehee School Reviews

McGehee has been a wonderful school for our daughter. The academics are strong and we are very impressed by what she is learning and the opportunities she has to explore deeply into areas of interest. But, we are even more impressed with the way that McGehee focuses so strongly on giving the girls confidence, resilience, and leadership skills. Before looking at McGehee, I was not open to the idea of an all-girls school, but I am so happy that we took the time to explore this school and what it offers because my daughter is thriving in this environment. I used to describe her as shy, but now she is one of the first ones to raise her hand to ask a question or volunteer to go up on stage. She loves going to school! McGehee is a community, not just a school, and we are so happy that we found it.

Going to Louise S. McGehee School is one of the best choices I have ever made. Its community harbors respect and inclusivity. As opposed to being lectured, students are given and opinion on what they want to learn and the opportunity and resources to do so. As opposed to a teacher-student power shift, Mcgehee felt like a place for learners. Experienced learners helping others. Beliefs, ideas, and voices were heard and respected by everyone. The students, faculty, and administration all followed the Honor Code greatly. There was very rarely any cheating, disrespectfulness, delinquency at Mcgehee. The teachers respected their students, and in return, the students respected the teachers. The school never issued bathroom passes, privacy folders, etc. because teachers trusted their students to act honorably, and students did. The school gives students freedoms most school kids wouldn't dream of, and teaches them the responsibilities that come with such freedoms.
McGehee's Honor Code truly lays the foundation for a community of unique, independent girls who follow rules and instruction because of what's right. Each student is her own individual person and is able to build her own unique style, aspirations, and interests. The Honor Code allows for a mutual respect between students and teachers, which creates a calm environment in the classroom that makes learning much easier. I think there are many great things about the community at McGehee that most students don't realize or take for granted. I understand that non-McGehee students give McGehee a bad reputation—I've been met with disdain many times after saying what school I go to—but this reputation is not accurate and I urge anyone looking at this school to not take this into consideration. I understand that McGehee is not for everyone, but I believe that this school is perfect for strong-willed girls who aren't afraid to be trailblazers.
