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!
Review McEachern High School
Overall McEachern Highschool is very diverse. The teachers are always encouraging news their students to do their best! The teachers themselves show professionalism and realatedness with every student. They cooperate as a team with facility members and others involved; as well as, encouraging students to attend school games, activities all in all showing great sportsmanship and engagement in after school activities. They hold responsible for everything that is done, very professional, and take control over the classes.
McEachern High School has an excellent music program that is a strong support in the music excellence of Cobb County schools. Provides a diverse set of extracurricular activities, yet promotes academics first. Academics wise, the school strives to not only set high standards for the students but encourages them to strive beyond those standards. Teachers are always willing to help students and provide additional help outside of class time. One suggestion for the school would be to focus on college preparation with the seniors. Additional information sessions or conferences that focus on topics such as loans, finances, interview skills, and resume writing sessions would be extremely beneficial.
