Mcdonogh 35 is considered an historic school. I love the fun I use to have when going there. You can meet some cool people. I just wish the school prepared me more for college. Also academic wise it was not the best. Eventhough i was a top 20 student getting in to collge i didnt feel that way. They really didnt prepare me for the ACT, which i tried my hardest to make above a 21.

The teachers care about the students education. The administration faculty is understanding, the sports are outstanding, and the students are kind, fun and respectful. Coming from a alum like myself, this school is great.
I went here for 3 years. In my years I’ve learned that the school is pretty much average. The longer I’ve been there the more it declined for me, but I’ve been to worse schools so it didn’t matter to much. I can at least say I enjoyed my time at the school.
