McCluer High School Reviews

I am a current senior at McCluer High School. I have been here all of my four years and I must say, I’ve had some very good experiences! I am comfortable with all of my teachers and counterparts, and I always have been. I have learned how to keep up and stay on task during the course of class. My teachers are great at finding ways to make sure students understand the work assigned. I have had a wonderful time at McCluer and it is a bittersweet feeling about graduating and leaving.

Most of the teachers are phenomenal, but the students are the problem. There are gems that are very bright, very driven. They receive scholarships, go to top universities (recently one getting into Stanford). Then there are the bottom students. They get into fights, repeat grades ("super senior" a common term), fail classes, and disrespect everyone. The administration is so overwhelmed dealing with these students that the top students are both ignored and crushed under unrealistic expectations. They are expected to represent the school in events, but don't get much in return. If anything, they are punished for the slightest transgression that other students would get away with. They are forced into groups projects with trouble students, in an attempt to "better" those students. In reality, it usually leads to the driven student to do all of the work. Depending on the person, it sometimes even leads to bullying if they try to get everyone to work, if I'm being completely honest.
I recently graduated from McCluer and I can honestly say that the school is a perfect example of potential limited by resources. Across my 4 year experience there I’ve dealt with teachers who genuinely prepared me for my future, clubs that let me grow, and going to McCluer beat my other potential school hands down. My experience is rare amongst my student body due to me often receiving the 1 or two teachers of a particular subject that would actually make the learning digestible. The lack of resources available to the school due to the lack of funding which leaves most aspects of the school sorely underfunded and underprepared. I also wish to highlight that having the coursework of McCluer alone and not being placed under the dwindling number of competent teachers will leave someone unprepared to go to their next level of education or even to become an actual adult, thankfully I was prepared and I was able to find teachers to provide me with a good learning experience.
