The teachers in the school are amazing. They care about the wellbeing of their students. The environment is like that of most high schools. However, there is support for almost all programs, including those of the arts. There are many great clubs and activities that anyone can be a part of! It was great to get involved in high school.
McDonald County High School is a close school always striving for the best. It's no wonder their motto is "Every child, every day, whatever it takes". Whatever it takes really goes a long ways. If I could change something about McDonald County, I would try to find better ways for the teachers and kids to be real comfortable with each other to be able to get help with anything whether it's school work or something personal going on. To really help each individual with their mental status to keep them as healthy as possible so they're ready to learn.
I have gone to McDonald County High School my whole high school time. Here I have met my lifelong best friends and have had many experience I could never forget. There's always something to be involved in and I feel completely safe there. Our resource officer doesn't just enforce the rules he truly cares for and loves each individual child. Any question I have our counselors are always quick to answer and come out with a clear good answer. Not to mention our teachers don't only teach us our classroom work but life skills that we'll love forever and how to work in the real work. Our school has some wild children that give me concerns and make me nervous and we're a very poor school, but we do our best with what we got and they make me feel like it's my home.
