Mccutcheon is a great school for the average student but most of the honors and AP classes are not as challenging as they should be. On the other hand, Mccutcheon offers great sports and a wide variety of clubs. There are new clubs being formed every year! For example, there is the trap club, fantasy football and many others. As for the sports, Mccutcheon has a new turf field. This field looks great but it just shows how the school values sports above the arts. The auditorium at Mccutcheon is god awful with broken curtains, asbestos and breaking chairs. The administration has a clear preference towards athletes so if you don't play a sport then they probably wont know you exist.

The soccer program is amazing. Every athletic program here is amazing. The coaching staff is more than helpful with helping students achieve greatness on and of the field/court/track. Not only do the coaches further the skills and abilities of the athletes physical traits, they help with the mental game to. They help students with school and maintaining grades.

another great thing this school provides, is help. The staff here is amazing with providing the help you need in every subject! Falling behind and not understanding can only happen if you don't ask for help. All the services here are provided!
Something I would like to change is to have a preparatory class senior year that is designed to help aid students with future tasks we will stumble upon. In this class you should be taught things such as: how to build and maintain a good credit score, file your taxes, take out loans, and how to calculate the recommended amount you can spend on a house or car without bankrupting yourself. Just things that we are going to have to deal with after graduation, and not everyone will have/has someone who can teach them these sort of things. I really enjoyed my time at McCutcheon because it was big enough that I was able to have the opportunities and experiences of a big school, but it was still small enough that I received the small classroom setting. The teachers at this school care about each student, and they aren't there to see us fail. They do anything and everything they can to help us succeed.
I am grateful that I got to have the experiences I did. Go Mavs!
