McClintock High School Reviews

I have taken both general education and Peggy Payne courses, and I can fairly say, one is more enjoyable than the other. General education courses provide thorough explanations that help students retain the knowledge they have learned while also providing a healthy atmosphere for a learning mind. I can say that I would prefer general education over advanced courses at McClintock, particularly because the advanced classes do not provide a gifted approach to the problems presented. Rather, they provide difficult resolutions in long assignments. If I could change one thing, I would alter the Peggy Payne program way so that it can follow truly gifted standards that it is supposed to. This being compared to the harsh amounts of unnecessary work and teachers who expect the student to understand with needing an explanation. Overall, the courses that most students would take are exceptionally beneficial when it comes to retaining information and taking the time to understand the curriculum.

Throughout my 4 years at McClintock, I have learned so much about myself, others and of course my education. With all the extracurriculars, sports and club that are provided, it’s always easy to find your little niche. However, one thing I would like to see changed is the administration. At recent years at McClintock, admin hasn’t done their best to “get along with students”. Instead of proving an authentic learning experience, I learned to slither my way through school, instead of actually prospering and learning the subjects with ease. It was always a struggle to learn, and administrators never seemed to care or help as if it didn’t entail them.
McClintock was a great school to attend. The school staff really pushed you to succeed in classes and if you felt like you weren’t, they helped you to switch to a class where you could succeed. There are a lot of clubs, and electives, and other extracurricular activities to be a part of. There’s truly something for everyone there. The lunch isn’t good but you get 45 minutes to eat off campus (an hour would be better) but overall this was a great school to spend the last 4 years
