McDonald County High School Reviews
McDonald County is not only the foundation for stepping out into the world, but the place where you can call home forever. Not just the school but the district is like a family to me. They support your goals and give you the confidence and encouragement needed to make dreams become a reality. You will never forget your experience here or the people who made the impossible possible. Not to mention the enthusiastic teachers, administration, coaches, and janitors who bring joy to school days and who will always care for you in the future after you leave. I will always be proud to be a mustang and will cherish every memory I made there.
We have many clubs and group activities here at McDonald County High School. Some clubs are International Club, Library Club, Band, Basketball, Baseball, Drama, FFA, FCA, SkillsUSA, Student Council, Football, Soccer, Softball, Wrestling, Cheer, Gifted Program/Tips, and Debate. Most of our clubs require a high level of commitment such as cheer and band. There are also many booster groups like Band Boosters. Most students at my high scool are involved in 1-2 groups and some of them are involved in much more. In my opinion, the funnest of the groups is band. I am the band manager at my high school. The McDonald County High School Band is one big family and is full of amazing students.
In McDonald County High School, you will discover we have the best pride for miles around. My favorite experience was when my high school had its basketball homecoming and we were playing against our rivals, Neosho High School. There was nearly 2000 people in our gym. The score was tied 57-57 and our team had the ball. One of the best senior players ran the ball down the court and he went up for a layup, 10 seconds left on the clock. He missed so our center grabbed the ball, there was only 2 seconds left and he went up for a layup. The ball was in the air when the buzzer rang. It went in and all of the kids and parents from McDonald County High School cheered and hugge. The Mustang Pride is one of the best qualities of McDonald County High School.
