McCall-Donnelly High School Reviews

Overall, I've enjoyed my time at MDHS! My teachers have been fairly accommodating and easy to work with, and I've met some of my favorite people here. Inclusion vs. exclusion is a bit of a tough topic here, and there are some bits and pieces that aren't as lovely as MDHS would like you to believe - the loneliness that can stem from a small community riddled with even a small amount of divisiveness and bullying aren't great, but the education is well-structured and rigorous for a small school. Budget distributions can make children of the arts feel disproportionately represented with a hefty set of funds for winning sports teams and some ignorance in other spots, and the pressure to take AP classes, Dual-Credit, and participate in extracurriculars - while great for college prep and resume building - can wear down the community. Overall, I'm glad to have been here for my strong education during high school.

McCall-Donnelly High School is one of the best in the state. Considering that it is such a small town, it's incredible the opportunities that are offered through the school, some of which aren't even offered at bigger schools in bigger cities. The community is so inclusive and everyone really cares for students, which makes high school a completely different experience than others may receive. The teachers, administrators, and students preach kindness, and that is what any parent or student should be looking for in a school.
The faculty continue to amaze me in how much they care about each and every student. They were always there when I needed help, or even just someone to talk to. A very student-friendly atmosphere and academically excellent.
