On top of top of the variety In acedamic levels, cultural appreciation and diversity, staff aid, resources, and opportunities, McCaskey is a great Highschool. Many people and other schools have a name for us due to their lack of understanding and opinions but we identify as a harmonious community where you have a place no matter the
gender preference, sexual orientation, religious beliefs, and interests you have. There are clubs for anything you can think of and the fact we are split into Small Learning Communities you. Many students find teachers they grow great relationships with and push them to become better. Many other factors we have that other schools don’t is a peer mediation program where students offer their set of ears to help students talk about their problems. We have a positive environment and a safe one thanks to our coaches, facility and staff, and student body. And no mater the sport, club, interests,or areas of education, we are all Red Tornado strong and proud.

McCaskey was a great school for me and they always made sure their students were taken care of! I wish I had seen more parents get involved with their children’s education but teachers and staff definitely took up for those students that did not have the complete support of family members. Many different clubs and sports that gave each student the ability to find something that they were comfortable with and an amazing group of students that always made each other feel welcomed. I loved my high school!
As much as the McCaskey High School Campus has been talked down on for being an urban school in the middle of the city where "ghetto" teens attend. my experience at McCaskey High School was amazing. Despite slight issues that are common as a high school student regardless of where you attend, McCaskey High School has taught me more than just the basics, such as, precalculus, literature, biology, etc. It has taught me life after high school, helped me explore careers with the hand on votech programs they offer in the school. I have learned the realities of everything around me and my experience at McCaskey High School has shaped my to be a successful college student with high hopes and dreams that will never be destoryed!
