I’m currently a senior in high school and I love the fact that each grade level gets the chance to be apart of spirit week! Which is great for all grades because it brings everyone together for school spirit. Another thing I love about our school is students with a GPA 3.2 and above get rewarded for it and also for attendance which greatly appreciates students at McCreary Central! Their HOSA club helped me through a lot academic and education wise and I’m proud to say that McCreary Central try’s their hardest to make every student happy and comfortable in any way possible.

If you're looking for a place to enjoy conservative propaganda, you've found your school! (That was a joke...kind of) This school has low diversity and is greatly populated by republican, Caucasian, 'hill-billies'. There are some aspects of this school that aren't all that bad. I would venture to say about 20% of the students and staff are respectable people. Groups like the drama club, engineering club, and band are a few of the communities who know how to act. While it is not a good school, I can say that going here has taught me a lot of things - just not academic material.
McCreary Central highschool is, in my opinion, the single greatest public school. Since I go to a public school, each individual gets to experience multiple ethnicities everyday. We have kids from multiple different countries through the student exchange program and we are estatic to learn their various cultures. We are a distinguished, diverse, extravagant school and we welcome all new students with open arms. The teachers at McCreary Central are the friendliest teachers you will meet. They have a job to get done, and they do it well, but hey are still so caring with each student. Our two college coaches do their best to make sure every student that walks through their door gets the best oppertunity, after highschool, to go to the best college they can.
