My experience at McClintock has been great! When I arrived as a freshman, I felt completely at ease with the school and didn't have a hard time finding my classes because they gave us our schedules early. The teachers there are very welcoming and are good at what they do. Now that I'm a senior, I'm sad that this is my last year, but I'm glad that my experiences at this high school are ones that I can look back at and be happy about.

I love this school. I'm currently a junior and have been attending since my freshman year. The fine arts program is fantastic and recommended to any music preformer or artist. There are many classes offered, all at different skill levels, and the duel enrollment program is outstanding. The teachers are professional, kind, and overall amazing; I've never had any problems with them.
My only grievance is how the administration handled some of the issues I was having on campus. Long story short, an ex-lover of mine was bitter and resorted to stalking and harassing me via social media, even going as far as to create a fake name on a new account after blocking them. When I reported it to the school, I was told to only ignore it since it was only "an annoyance." Other than that, I find the teachers to be very understanding and wonderful, and most of the students are respectful of others.
Many of the students and faculty at McClintock seem to be struggling with a lack of structure. The school has recently undergone some changes due to new administration. Experienced administrator Principal Arroyo has made attempts to integrate her techniques at McClintock. I fear that her arrival is unwelcomed by teachers and students and that is what is causing a change in morale at the school. Students seem to be even more enfuriated by the new administration. They believe that Principal Arroyo should not be focused on changing McClintock but finding new ways for it to thrive. Change in a School should be progressional, not implemented.
