Academically, McCluer South-Berkeley High School is pretty decent. The school does provide some rigorous courses that challenges students, but some of the courses aren't as meticulous as others. The social studies courses could more challenging. Also, there are a few of teachers and college advisors that who help students with preparing for college. McCluer South-Berkeley is not as strong discussing social status. Social events that other high schools normally have are rarely planned. This school's focus is strictly academic based. It can become really boring for students at times.

My experience was GREAT! But looking back, I wish I would've been more involved and participated in more of the opportunities available. During my time there, I was extremely active in several academic/career programs, sports and school activities. Freshman year, the school selected roughly 10 students with a high gpa to participate in a 4 year career program. This program allowed several students and myself the opportunity to attend different interns to help with our career decisions. My career path was medical so I was given the opportunity to work with The Saint Louis Science Center, Barnes-Jewish Christian Hospital, Washington University and many more. Outside of the academics, I enjoyed playing sports and participating in school activities. Go Bulldogs!!
They school is great! It has a good environment and has good staff that cares about their students. They have great academic and athletic clubs, and the school will overall, prepare students for college.
