McEachern was a good school. It was my senior year when I moved to this district so I am probably a little bias since I did not spend all 4 years there. Overall though, the teachers and staff were great! Always nice and ready to lend a hand. They had great activities to do there and the sports were always great to watch. The place is HUGE and in a way it prepared me for college because we always have to walk across campus to get places and the teachers and there essays, definitely prepared me also. I don’t have anything bad to say about my time there! I actually can say this was the best year of my high school life

McEachern was a totally new environment for me as I have always been used to being the only black kid in all of my classes from being put in majority white schools. Going to this school actually helped me come out of my shell a bit and become more outgoing as I was no longer afraid to talk to others and just be outward with myself. The academics were also pretty good as the teachers were always willing to help and look out for the students. In addition, the diversity was amazing here. There are so many different races here that you won't feel left out wherever you go!
McEachern High School was known for football and its college campus. Aside from occasional bad weather, catching fresh air before going to class always highlighted my school days. I participated in the McEachern Vibe dance team for 3 years, and track and theater for 4.
When it was time for my school to get in spirit, we never failed. I remember some Friday mornings, in front of Russel Hall, the band and cheerleaders would perform hyping students to wake up and support. It was a positive way to start a morning.
My administrator and counselor were by far the most significant individuals at McEachern. Both has seen, accepted, and helped me at my worst in high school. I received endless advice and hospitality with no hesitation.There are a variety of talented, brilliant characters at that school.
There is no other high school i would have even thought of attending. I will forever be an Indian!
