McAlester High School Reviews
In 2012 I started my freshman year at Mcalester high school. As a fifteen year old; I was excited yet very nervous about a new school. There were two classes in particular that made me feel "powerful" both classes had freshman threw seniors in them. Band and Yearbook. In band I played the trombone. I wasn't very good at all but my instructors never made me feel less. Yearbook was a laidback class. Nothing was actually a individual grade it was about team work. Yearbook class made me put my self out in the real world and talk to people I live around. Inside these two classes I gained confidence when speaking, self love, and a bit of sass. because of the classes Mcalester high school offered I accepted myself and I found my voice.
I loved being in Band and getting to know many of the other students and form bonds as well and their honors program is amazing. They have great teachers and the students are equally viewed by most teachers. If I could change one thing, I would change the lack of communication between the main office and the students which has been enhanced by the student council but needs more improvement.
To be honest, Mcalester High School brought me so many great memories and led me to meet many great people. The thing I appreciate the most are all of the life lessons it taught me, the good and the bad. I would love to see the environment itself to change. The students aren’t very open and welcoming to people who think more creatively. Everyone deserves to feel important.
