My experience at Macomb High School was very well spent. Thankfully, I was not bullied there and to my knowledge not much bullying is happening because of the teachers and administrators promoting the effects of bullying and why it should never be done. On top of that, the teachers and administrators are very kind and understanding for each and every student. What I would like to see changed is that more than 50 percent of the students attending are under goverment lunch and I would like to see less than 25 percent of the students be on goverment lunch. To add to that, I would love to see more student involvement throughout the community because it seems as though students do not want to be involved with community service for them wanting to spend their free time on what they would like to do, not what people would like to see them doing.

Macomb High School is a great size and has a great community surrounding it. The athletics and classes are subpar but overall the school is pretty nice. Homecoming week is a very fun time of the school year because all the students get involved for a chance to win the spirit stick. There are fun activities and relays every day to participate in. Macomb also offers a wellness day where students can choose which wellness classes they attend.
In my opinion, Macomb High School is a great high school! I have never had an issue or wished I was at a different high school. All the teachers and staff are caring, respectful, and ultimately looking out for the students' well being and educational sucess. I personally think that is very important and I am very grateful that I attend a high school like Macomb High School!
