McEachern is an outstanding school. I truly enjoy attending this school on a daily basis. McEachern has lots of clubs and activities as well as opportunities which can help you successfully prepare for the future. McEachern feels like a second home to me; I feel completely comfortable with the teachers and staff that work there. The people who attend McEachern are dynamic and full of life. If I was to describe my experience there in one word it would be monumental!

I went to McEachern High School, all four years for my high school experience. I enjoyed the overall opportunity to be apart of the community in our school and in Georgia period. I loved the acceptance of different cultures, the chances on learning more than one common language, and the diversity roaming around the open campus. The bonus was the open campus that prepared the students for how college would be on a real campus or University. My overall experience as a McEachern Indian was very welcoming, different, exciting, cultural awakening, and I wouldn't trade it for the world. I met many different people that inspired and affected me, teachers and students alike, and had many experiences that many adults haven't even had the chance to try. All in all, I would recommend it for the upcoming generation who also wants the chance to learn, try new things, and be accepted. The only thing I would recommend is more chances to have real life experiences in preparation for the Real World.
McEachern’s diverse environment has helped me find a comfortability within my peers, simply just by sharing the same race. It’s helped me realize that there are others like me and we share several traditions that I thought no one else knew of. McEachern has an overwhelming positive and hype energy when it comes to sports. We’ve had national television stations come to film our football and basketball games and other news reports which makes us students even more excited to come out and support our teams. Events like this open my eyes to how worthwhile high school is, even the small details like wearing school colors together embraces a sense of family and purpose. McEachern offers various programs and career pathways that give students opportunity to explore interests and provides a sense of family from whichever activity you belong to.
