Macon County High School has an excellent community that works well with the schools. Of course, you have good and bad faculty and staff. For the most part, I think our faculty and staff are pretty good and loves helping the students in any way that they can. If they can get better with preparing students with college, then that would be good. I feel that they should have more college classes offered to the students and partnerships with colleges near the school. If they do that, the school will be better than it is now. Students will have a better outlook on college and also college credits that they will not have to take once they enter school.

I love Macon County High and if I could change one thing it would be line of communication. Communication is everything between the teachers and the parents.
More resources for the students. And for the teachers to be more passionate about their job. That way school want be so boring and the students would be more involved.
