Mccracken County High School Reviews
What I liked most about McCracken County High is the numerous opportunities offered. Unlike surrounding high schools, they offer courses in biomedical sciences, health careers, culinary, engineering, the arts, etc while offering rigorous required courses. The athletic department is top notch and the teachers are very knowledgeable and helpful.
I enjoyed going to school at McCracken County High School. The classes have prepared me for college and the teachers made class interesting. The principal is very involved in activities around the school and constantly strives to let every student know that he cares about everyone at the school. Since the school building is only a few years old, the facilities are very nice and clean. This is a great high school to attend.
McCracken County High School is a consolidated school of Reidland, Lone Oak, and Heath High School. Combining schools was probably one of the best decisions to happen to McCracken County. The fairly new high school offers so many opportunities to help students thrive such as the Biomedical Program, Project Lead the Way Programs, etc. These programs would not exist for all high school students if the schools did not consolidate. The love everyone has for our school can be seen every single day through our Mustang pride. I love McCracken County High School and am thankful for the opportunity to attend it.
